The President submitted to tax authorities information on his incomes, properties, bank accounts, securities, and liabilities, as well as information on the assets and incomes of his family members, his wife Svetlana and son Ilya.
In December 2008 the President signed the Federal constitutional law On Amendments to Article 10 of the Federal Constitutional Law ‘On the Government of the Russian Federation’, that requires the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers and Federal Ministers to submit information not only on their incomes, but also on the incomes of their family members (spouses and minor children), to the tax authorities.
On 10 March 2009 at a meeting of the Anti-Corruption Council, Dmitry Medvedev said that these accountability measures need to be applied to the head of state as well. The President said that he would file an income and assets declaration for the year 2008 with the tax authorities, as well as sign a decree that will provide the legal grounds for applying these rules to the head of state.
By direction of the Head of the Presidential Executive Office Sergei Naryshkin, officials of the Presidential Executive Office holding positions of First Deputy Head of the Executive Office, Deputy Heads of the Executive Office, Presidential Aides, Security Council Secretary and his deputies, Plenipotentiary Presidential Envoys to the federal districts, as well as to the Federation Council, State Duma and Constitutional Court are obliged not only to submit information about their own incomes, assets, bank accounts, securities and liabilities, but also submit similar information in relation to their spouses and minor children to the Federal Tax Service before April 1.
