Head of the Accounts Chamber of Russia Tatiana Golikova fought back tears during her resignation speech in the State Duma in Moscow on Thursday. After thanking her colleagues, Golokova went on to list some of her achievements in office. «You will see that during this period I have mentioned 42.4 billion roubles were returned to the federal budget. If you divide it by the number of the Accounts... Еще Chamber’s staff, regardless of whether they are inspectors or not, it would be 38 million roubles. I think that not every federal institution can boast of that.» Golikova will take up the post of vice premier minister in charge of social politics. Former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin announced his intention to run for the position of Accounts Chamber Chairman on Monday.
