Moscow, Aug 19 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The number of civil service officials in Moscow will be cut by some 1,000 next year, the mayor has said.

Sergei Sobyanin said Thursday about 2,000 civil service jobs were cut in the capital in the past year.

Currently, the number of Moscow officials stands at 24,000, he added.

Sobyanin became Moscow mayor in October last year, after his predecessor Yury Luzhkov was fired by President Dmitry Medvedev “over loss of confidence.”
