The average pay rose by 32.2% against January 2006 and now amounts to 12,009 RUR a month, First Deputy Minister for Economics and Labor Nikolai Bespamyatnikh announced at Sverdlovsk Region Cabinet meeting.

‘The region’s industrial production index went up 8.4% compared to a year earlier; so did the amount of investments (28%) that now comes to 9.5 billion RUR,’ Mr. Bespamyatnikh added.

On the other hand, Ural Federal District’s law-enforcement agencies have reported more than 4,000 violations related to paying salaries since the beginning of the year. However, the disclosure of these abuses helped to cut wage arrears by 29% (from 96.9 million RUR to 69.9 million).
