Russian Minister Nikolay Nikiforov: more open data on budgets and contracts to come

Today at the World Bank, Nikolay Nikiforov, Minister of Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, answered two of my questions about providing access to data about government operations in response to requests from the media. While he didn’t directly answer my query regarding media request, he did say that the Russian government will be making more data available regarding government contracts available.

For more context on Russia, open data and digital government, read my post at Global Integrity.
