Russia's president laying off staff

Here's a novel idea. Dmitry Medvedev says, "One has to begin with oneself. The President’s administration is not the largest structure but it should show an example.” And this leader is also a darling of the press.
    Some 100 employees are to be sacked from Dmitry Medvedev’s administration. This means that approximately every fifteenth worker will lose their job, since there are about 1500 people working in his offices. . .

    Besides asking to work out a plan for cutting the expenses of his administration, Medvedev also recommended that the Federation Council and regional deputies do the same.
But apparently a lot of officials went to France for holiday anyway. Government officials get all the perks regardless of the country. RT link.
