10 billion rubles for State Duma's needs in 2017
Almost half of this amount will go into salaries for the work of deputies and their assistants.
In 2017, the State Duma will receive more than 10 billion rubles of budgetary funds. This was reported on the official website of the lower house of Parliament.
It is estimated that almost half of the above mentioned amount, 4 billion 846 million rubles, will go into salaries for the work of deputies and their assistants.
Another 5 billion 82 million rubles will be spent on "support of the State Duma." On the payment of contributions to the budgets of international parliamentary organizations the draft budget contains the sum of 80.1 million rubles.
It is noted that the expenses on State Duma deputies and assistants grew because the number of state employees has increased. Envisaged funds will help maintain the actual level of remuneration for 2016 for the civil servants of the State Duma apparatus, according to the project.
Previously it was reported that State Duma Vice-Speaker Igor Lebedev proposed a new scheme of deputies' transport maintenance. The plan has not yet been approved by the Ministry of Finance; it will require the allocation of additional federal budget amounting to 215 million rubles per year.
Some progress is expected with the completion of a never-ending deluxe construction project – Golden Mile residential complex. Little-known businessman Sergei Popov is about to take charge of it. Former elite co-investors rejoice – their dream to live on Ostozhenka street may finally come true. Only Oleg Deripaska is not happy with the news – Sergei Popov may attract public attention to some dark episodes in the billionaire’s biography that he would like to forget for good.
