Governor Yurevitch says arrears are temporary

23 July 2010 (10:28)

The arrears of wages at some of Chelyabinsk Region’s enterprises are only a temporary phenomenon, the region’s Governor Mikhail Yurevitch said at today’s meeting with the Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Chelyabinsk.

‘We do have some arrears of wages in a few cases. The thing is, the arrears are very small and only come to about 15 million RUR; what is more, all these problem enterprises are now under my personal supervision. Our plenipotentiary representative of the Russian Federation President in Ural Federal District is also personally monitoring the situation. So we keep communicating with each and every such company. All of them have objective causes for delaying the pay day. Still, such problems do occur every now and then. Once one company has paid off all the wages, another one gets itself into debt. However, most of the times the arrears are only temporary, and this temporary nature of debt is very important,’ Mikhail Yurevitch observed.
