1. Fair Russia wants Russians to practice more sports by covering their expenses from the budget.
Fitness will open up its doors to a greater number of individuals while improved health will reduce the need for medications and rising healthcare costs.
2. MPs are expected to review a bill to give e-mails to the authorities the same legal force as ordinary requests on paper.
Under current law, officials shall respond to requests within a 30-day period. If the bill is passed, the same would apply to e-mails.
Andrey Rudenko, from Fair Russia, hopes the move would help cut red tape.
3. Alexey Zhuravlev is seeking to reform Russia’s conscription system to cut hazing and improve quality of service in the army.
Under the present system, young people are drafted twice a year – in the autumn and springtime.
The MP has drafted legislation to arrange it only once a year, a measure he expects to cut costs and improve the conditions for many servicemen.
4. Russia’s president signed into law a bill to channel 75 percent of the Central Bank’s revenue into the budget.
The bill is expected to enter into force in 2016 and cover the 2015 earnings of the Bank of Russia.
5. Andrey Isaev, head of the Labour Committee of the Russian Parliament, promised to review the proposal of the International Labour Organization to switch to a four-day week, says Kommersant.
The move towards a 10-hour 4-day scheme would be possible, he said, promising to hold a roundtable on the issue.
Vice-premier Olga Golodets believes the shift is not feasible.

It then turned out the ILO never proposed anything to the Russian government. The idea was voiced by its expert Jon Messenger, who’s shared his thoughts in the Work In Progress, a blog of the UN labour watchdog.
