Dmitry Medvedev enters the second half of incomes of the Russian government for 2016. Only the Cabinet has revealed the list of 32 declarations, in which the Premier is on the 18th place.

The slight decrease in revenues of Dmitry Medvedev in 2016 the government explain the reduction of the size of his Bank Deposit and payment of interest thereon. List real estate and vehicles Medvedev’s all remained the same — this is a private apartment with an area of 368 square meters and two cars, GAS-20 and GAZ-21. His spouse Svetlana Medvedeva, who showed zero income for the last year, has two Parking spaces and a passenger car “Volkswagen Golf”.

The maximum income among government officials in 2016 showed the Minister for North Caucasus Affairs Lev Kuznetsov. His earnings jumped 12 times. In his office, explained that the amount of 528 million rubles received by the Minister “as a result of earnings from investments, and real estate transactions, which was declared previously.” In particular, they were “sold expensive real estate in Moscow”. This is not the last of such assets Kuznetsova. In Russia he owns 10 plots of land with an area of 1.5 thousand square meters and the house. Another plot almost 3.4 thousand square meters and building area of 180 square meters, which Kuznetsov owns the rights of joint ownership, located in France. Kuznetsov fleet consists of Mercedes A200, BMW M5 and a Ferrari 599 GTB.

The income of his wife Inga Kuznetsova also increased 3 times, up to 32.7 million. This allowed the couple together earn last year, about 614 million rubles, which is the highest level of income among the families of officials of the Russian government.

Kuznetsov was dismissed from the first place of this ranking last year’s leader, Minister for Open government Mikhail Abyzov. Despite the fact that the last earned last year, more than 521 million rubles, which is 65 million more than the year before.

“Bronze” rating of incomes of officials of the government went to this time Deputy Prime Minister and presidential Plenipotentiary envoy to the far Eastern Federal district Yuri Trutnev. For a year he managed to maim income 203 million to 356 million roubles.

Of all the members of the Russian White house the most “poor” last year was the head of the Ministry Alexander Tkachev, who has earned 5,6 million roubles, 200 thousand less than the year before. Five more Ministers put their income in the range of up to 6 million rubles.

It is worth noting that despite the fact that the income of members of the Russian government vary more than 100 times, the difference between earning “good middling” rating of Dmitry Medvedev and the “outsiders” list is not so big. It is noteworthy that 7 of the 32 participants of the list can hardly be called supporters of their families because their half earn more.

“The parameters of income and assets disclosed by the Ministers can be attracted to someone, and someone not. Someone might suspect that they are actually much higher. But the tendency to disclosure I think is right,” — said the adviser of Institute of modern development Nikita Maslennikov.
