As has told to the newspaper “Kommersant”, the representative of the organization Patrick Belzer, responsible for the regulation of labor relations, this year salaries will have a tendency to “significant growth”, and in 2018, we can expect positive dynamics, because in the current conditions, the salaries associated with the changing situation in the economy, not employment status.

The source publication added that the calculations are not entirely reliable, as information about paid amounts are not always served in full.

In late March, labor Minister Maxim Topilin said that the real incomes of Russians in January-February 2017 rose one percent compared to the same period in 2016.

Salaries, he said, grew by 2.3 percent, allowing it to calculate the change tendencies of declining revenues.
