A large part of inequality in Russia is concentrated within regions, which is associated with the country. Greater numbers of the poor living in the wealthiest regions of the Russian Federation. About it reports “Kommersant”, citing a world Bank report.

Comparison of gross regional product (GRP) of the richest and poorest regions indicate that according to this indicator, Moscow meets the Netherlands, Magadan region — Hong Kong, while Chechnya is comparable to the Congo, and Tuva — Bolivia. This lack of consistency is largely due to the legacy of the Soviet Union and high unemployment.

According to the report, regional inequality is reduced unsatisfactorily slow, and the processes contributing to this are gradually exhausted.

The report “Overcoming spatial inequalities: how to reassemble the Soviet puzzle in the conditions of market economy” was published by the world Bank in July 2018, a report led by chief economist for Russia Apurva Sangi.

“Over 90 percent of the inequality, intraregional, which is consistent with the conclusion that intra-regional inequality tends to be higher than interregional. But this index in Russia rose significantly compared to the previous decade,” said Sangi in the study.

On 12 July it became known that the world Bank estimated the damage to the global economy from uneducated women. According to the report, over 130 million girls do not attend school, therefore, the global economy loses up to $ 30 trillion a year.
