The Russian government reports it has fulfilled about a half of the 218 “May Orders” – the points in the major social and economic program signed by President Putin right after his inauguration two years ago.
According to the report published on the government’s web-site on Wednesday, ministers have managed to execute 121 presidential orders in two years. The reports on the execution of 17 more orders are currently being reviewed by the Presidential Administration and 97 orders are still being worked on, the report reads.
The authors of the document add that the execution of three orders are overdue – they should have been implemented before December 2013. The work on the rest is on schedule and the program must be fully completed before 2020 – well beyond Vladimir Putin’s current presidential term that expires in 2018.
