MOSCOW, May 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the Finance Ministry to prepare and submit proposals by July 1, 2014 to lay off 10% of public servants, said the government official website which posted Medvedev’s instructions upon results of his annual report on government’s working results in 2013 at the State Duma.
The prime minister delivered the annual government report on April 22. The premier stated particularly to ponder another 10% cuts of public servants in regions and at the federal level, because Russia needs “a modern, compact and effective state personnel oriented at people’s requests.”
Meanwhile, Medvedev recalled he had already decided to lay off state officials by 20% several years ago. “This was fulfilled better at some places and worse at some other places. I will put it straightforwardly that this is frequently done slower than we expected,” he acknowledged.
According to the Federal State Statistics Service, employees of state authorities and local self-government bodies numbered 1,548,062 people in 2013, including 48,593 people at the federal level and 1,499,469 people at the regional level. Meanwhile, the average monthly salary of public servants in federal state authorities has made 98,400 robles. The average monthly salary of state officials at the regional level has reached 36,400 rubles and that of municipal employees - 33,600 rubles.
