MOSCOW, January 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu topped the list of the country's most efficient government officials, scoring 4.06 points on a five-grade scale, a state-run pollster said on Monday.
Data collected by the Russian Public Opinion Center (VTsIOM), named Shoigu as the only official in the top ten of popular politicians scoring more than four points, followed by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with 3.84 points and Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov at 3.48.
The rest of the top ten list line up as Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin (3.25), Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko (3.22), Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak (3.20), Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev (3.17), Communications and Mass Media Minister Nikolai Nikiforov (3.11) and Deputy Prime Ministers Igor Shuvalov (3.07) and Alexander Khloponin (3.03).
Poll returns also showed that Shoigu, who served as emergencies minister between 1994 and 2012, is also the most well-known minister in Russia, with only 14 percent of respondents failing to place him.
The poll was conducted in December last year among 1,600 respondents across Russia. The margin of error does not exceed 3.4 percent.
