The Ministry for Economic Development website posted an article on improvements to come in Russian e-government and stated that “the creation of e-government would lead to the emergence of a new system of control and greater responsibility of government officials.” “There will always be a person responsible, and no document will get lost,”. The Russian government hoped to have a developed e-government system in place by the beginning of 2010 but clearly this has been delayed. I think the most important aspect of establishing e-government will be to provide greater transparency in government operations which will only increase Russian citizens’ trust in their federal government as a whole.
