We are all used to believe that the top of the country is earning a lot of money. Let’s find out if this is so.
Attention! All data was taken in 2014, because it was the last year at the moment, when everyone was officially told about the income of the president and ministers. But we are for reliable information, though?
The annual salary of Vladimir Putin is 8.5 million rubles. This is about 700 thousand per month.
Dmitry Medvedev’s income is slightly more modest: 8 million rubles. It is about 665 thousand a month.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earns 6 million rubles a year or 500 thousand per month.
Between Lavrov and Medvedev is the Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu. Its annual income is 7.5 million. On an average of 625 thousand rubles, Shoigu comes out per month
Finance Minister Antoni Siluanov is richer than Putin, Medvedev, Shoigu and Lavrov combined: he earns about 36 million rubles a year. These are solid 3 million a month.
But outside the competition, the deputy chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Alexander Khloponin. The former head of Norilsk Nickel earns, attention, about 300 million rubles a year. It is about 25 million a month.
It is curious that according to official figures more, the president’s spokesman earns more of himself: Dmitry Peskov’s income is 9 million rubles a year
