    Putin earns 11% more than Medvedev, new government transparency policies shows

    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin earns 11% more than President Dmitry Medvedev, statements released as part of an anti-corruption drive show.

    Mr Putin earned 4.6m roubles ($137,000; 93,000) in 2008. His assets included a large plot of land and a share in a garage "equivalent to a car space".

    Mr Medvedev meanwhile took home 4.14m roubles and co-owns a Moscow apartment of almost 400 sq m (4,300 sq ft).

    Senior officials have been forced to disclose their income since December.

    But the new legislation does not force Russian bureaucrats to disclose the income of any grown-up children or relatives. No agency has been tasked with establishing whether the declarations are true.
