MOSCOW, 8 Feb – RIA Novosti. Minister of Education and Science Valery Falkov said on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel that the department is already examining the situation with the salary of Novosibirsk scientist Anastasia Proskurina. “We are already examining and looking, and, obviously, certain steps will be taken,” the minister said.
Earlier on Monday, during a meeting of the Council for Science and Education, Proskurina, an employee of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, complained to Vladimir Putin about the level of salaries. She noted that she received 25 thousand rubles, while from the beginning of the year she was entitled to a bonus of six thousand rubles.
The President, in turn, asked the Governor of the Novosibirsk Region Andrei Travnikov about the average level of salaries in the region and, having heard that it was 39 thousand rubles, indicated that the scientist should receive 78 thousand in the region.
Putin instructed Falkov and Finance Minister Anton Siluanov to investigate the situation and present a report.
The head of state suggested to Proskurina herself to immediately call his administration if after this conversation someone “tries to infringe” on her.
