MOSCOW, February 24. /TASS/. The number of unemployed citizens officially registered at Russia's bodies of the Federal Service for Employment and Labor Relations has grown by 2.2 % over the past week, the press service of the Russian Labor Ministry said on Tuesday.
The number of officially registered unemployed has grown by 2. 2% on February 11-18, 2015, from 939,071 to 959,445.
A total of 83 territories of the Russian Federation have reported unemployment growth; even Russian citizens who had earlier worked at Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, have lost their jobs. The Jewish autonomous region, Kaluga and Tyumen regions, the republics of Tuva and Buryatia account for the biggest number of the unemployed in Russia now.
Nonetheless, the Labor Ministry said, citing its sources, that unemployment rates had inconsiderably dropped in Crimea.
The overall number of workers, formerly employed on a part-time basis, but who were laid off on the initiative of local administrations, and workers sent on vacation on the so-called "agreements signed by the parties concerned on mutual consent," had totaled 245,001 by February 18, 2015.
