More than 4,5 million people are unemployed in Russia, as of June 1. Over the past two months, the number of unemployed has increased by more than one million people. These figures were announced by the Minister of Labor and Social Protection Anton Kotyakov at a meeting with the president.

According to him, the growth in the number of officially registered unemployed has slowed down: if from mid-April to the end of May, on average weekly employment centers registered about 220-250 thousand people, then in June this figure amounted to about 150 thousand people per week. In total, 2,4 million people were officially registered as unemployed in employment centers.

Kotyakov also said that for the third week in a row the growth in the number of organizations planning to dismiss or transfer workers to part-time employment has been slowing, while the number of vacancies is growing. According to the minister, in June, hiring of employees intensified: on average over 300 thousand people are employed per week. Last week, the number of dismissed and hired citizens was almost equal.

Peak in the number of unemployed in the Ministry of Labor is still waiting in the third quarter this year. According to Kotikov’s forecasts, the situation on the labor market should stabilize by the end of the year.
