MOSCOW, January 30. /TASS/. Russian Ministry of Labor and Social Protection does not expect the Russian employers to start mass layoffs in the nearest months, said Mikhail Kirsanov, the director of population employment department of the Russian Ministry of Labor.
"For the period from January 21 to 28 the number of unemployed citizens as registered with the labor office has increased, but only by 3.5% to 903,300 people, which has not produced any significant impact on the overall registered unemployment rate that totaled 1.2% of the economically active population on January 1, 2015, and still shows approximately the same number," he said.
The number of vacant jobs submitted by employers to employment offices for the last weeks has slightly decreased but is still more than that of citizens registered as unemployed, according to Kirsanov.
The number of workers which could potentially be laid off increased nearly by 70,000 people as of January, 1, 2015. As of January 28, their number was as much as 234,400 people, Kirsanov said.
