"The average salary increased by almost 8% and amounted to about 25,000 rubles," the head of the region said.

He added that according to the growth rate of salary, the Penza region occupies the first place among regions of the Volga Federal District and the sixth in Russia.

"Of course, I realize that the salary is still small and needs increasing," Ivan Belozertsev noted.
