MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Finance Ministry has proposed celebrating commemorative dates no more frequently than every 100 years to cut inefficient budget spending, a source familiar with the ministry’s position told TASS on Wednesday.

The ministry’s other proposal relates to "optimizing the number of closed administrative and territorial formations and state support for science towns," the source said.

"The Finance Ministry has drawn up a list of optimization proposals, which specifically relate to cutting the number of officials by 10%, giving up premium services and some state guarantees for civil servants and reducing the duration of their vacation from 45 to 40 days," the source said.

Russian business daily RBC reported earlier the Finance Ministry had proposed limiting transport services for officials, for example, by giving up the services of personal drivers, limiting the use of VIP waiting rooms in airports and business class seats aboard passenger airliners.
