The richest and the poorest ministers of Russia in 2016
The richest minister in 2016 earned 100 times more than the poorest one (Lev Kuznetsov with an income of 582 million against Tkachev with his 5.6 million).
The website of the Russian Cabinet published declarations of income for 2016. According to the document, the Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev (5.6 million rubles), and also heads of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of Transport, Sergey Donskoy and Pavel Kolobkov (5.7 million rubles each) earned the least money last year.
It should be noted that Kolobkov as the minister of the Russian government reports on incomes for the first time. He was appointed to this post only in October 2016.
It is to be recalled that the 'richest' members of the Cabinet in 2016 were the head of the Ministry for North Caucasus Affairs, Lev Kuznetsov, minister for working with the Open Government Mikhail Abyzov, and Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev.
The remarkable thing is that, in accordance with the submitted declarations, the 'richest' minister in 2016 earned 100 times more than the 'poorest' one (Lev Kuznetsov with an income of 582 million against Tkachev with his 5.6 million).
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
