MOSCOW, January 31, /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow authorities have dismissed 24 city bureaucrats for lying to Muscovites and ignoring their complaints, Anastasiya Rakova, the vice-mayor of Moscow, said on Friday.
Another 23 employees and 41 officials were reprimanded. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin had issued personal instructions to fire dishonest city executives who lied and gave false information to citizens.
“Not a single incidence of such misconduct on the part of bureaucrats should go unnoticed. Our task is to radically improve implementation standards this year,” Rakova explained saying that not a single complaint or application by Muscovites should be left ignored by Moscow officials.
