MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered hundreds of Russian federal officials to undergo training in some "priority areas" that they face while fulfilling their duties, according to a decree released on Wednesday.
Around 70 Russian state servants need to upgrade their skills in "protecting state secrets," the document says. This particular training program will last for up to 72 hours and is the most difficult one out of those in 17 other areas.
Some 50 officials will also learn how to determine and prevent graft cases. This 36-hour long professional program allows officials to undergo training on countering "facts of compiling false information."
Around a hundred officials will be trained to implement a transparency principle in the state bodies. A separate training is due to be conducted to explain to the officials the issues of pursuing the country’s demographic policy.
