Russian President Vladimir Putin received on Tuesday head of the Russian Railways Company Vladimir Yakunin
Russian President Vladimir Putin received on Tuesday head of the Russian Railways Company Vladimir Yakunin who informed the head of state of the results of the company’s operation last year. “We have completely fulfilled the plan,” Yakunin reported at the working meeting. “The company carried 1.3 billion passengers during the year and reached the highest level of daily loading of 3.8 million tonnes. We have also fulfilled all tasks, connected with the implementation of the cash-for-benefits law, and received no complaints on this point.” On studying materials, submitted by the company head, Putin pointed to a decrease in the transport component in the price of industrial goods in Russia. “This has been achieved thanks to cuts in expenses and to raising efficiency of transport haulage,” Yakunin explained. Speaking of tasks for the future, the company chief called as one of the most important things a decrease in the wear and tear of fixed assets, which amounted to 68 percent last year. “We plan to slash the wear and tear down to 56 percent by 2010,” he noted. Among the main tasks, Yakunin also pointed to reforming the passenger system of carriage. “I now signed all instructions on setting up a federal passenger management,” he stated. “You should not create any additional problems, connected with reorganization which you plan,” Putin warned. “You should calculate everything so that passenger carriage should not suffer.” In Yakunin’s words, “the company must not shift onto passengers the entire volume of expenses which are connected with ensuring transport independence of Russian citizens”. Putin noted again that all changes and ensuing expenses should not tell negatively on passengers. “Money should be found in the budget and not in the pockets of citizens,” the president emphasized.
