The Russian government will do everything to implement the may decrees, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during a meeting of President Vladimir Putin with government members.

«Of course, the government will do everything for the completion of the may presidential decrees of 7 may 2012 in the part which is still to take a decision», — said Medvedev.

«May decrees» — wide program for the development of social guarantees, which Mr Putin outlined in 2012, immediately after assuming the office of President of the Russian Federation, fulfilling his campaign promises. The decrees contain the parameters to which the Russian economy needs to go in his presidential term. Including among them was a decree to increase salaries to 100% or 200% of the average wage in the region by 2017. This increased the burden on regional budgets, which are financing these costs, so the period of execution of the decree was «extended» until 2018.
