More than 20 of the Russia`s 83 governors have released their tax declarations, revealing a vast chasm in their respective incomes.
Kaliningrad Governor Georgy Boos was by far the top-earning regional boss last year, declaring an income of 122.37 million rubles ($3.8 million), the report said.
President Dmitry Medvedev in March published his tax declaration, reporting 4.1 million rubles ($124,000) in earnings.

The decree, part of Medvdev's anti-corruption campaign, has been criticized for not requiring officials to make public the income of their adult children, to whom assets can be easily transferred. Mededvev conceded Tuesday that his anti-corruption drive has so far seen no success.
Income of 122.37 million rubles ($3.8 million) in one of the poorest region of Russia. Hmmm? The level of corruption you could see on my case. Russian poliсe entraps me for only 120$ and now trying to put me in prison for 3 years.
By Russian law any state official could not work in commercial companies.
P.S. Take a look at the blog of "Copydude" to understand the whole situation on corruption.
Georgy Boos’ Bananas Republic.
