Regional Minister Sought Online

Modernization of Russian bureaucracy reached a new height after the Ulyanovsk regional government published a vacancy for an information minister on the job search web site Superjob.ru, Gazeta.ru reported Wednesday.

The head of the newly established ministry will get a monthly salary of 60,000 rubles ($1,930) and must have at least seven years of professional experience in the IT industry, according to the vacancy, which did not specify a deadline for applications.

This is the first time in Russia an official of this rank is being recruited through a commercial job search web site, the report said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
