Presidential Administration of Russia

Part of the offices of the Presidential Executive Office are located in an Art Nouveau building at Moscow's 8 Staraya Square (next to the former seat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union).

The Presidential Executive Office of Russia[1] or the Presidential Administration of Russia (Russian: Администра́ция Президе́нта Росси́йской Федера́ции, tr. Administratsiya Prezidenta Rossiyskoy Federatsii) is the executive office of the President of Russia created by a decree of Boris Yeltsin on 19 July 1991 as an institution supporting the activity of the president (then Yeltsin) and the vice-president (then Aleksandr Rutskoy, in 1993 the position was abolished) of Russian SFSR (now Russian Federation), as well as deliberative bodies attached to the president, including the Security Council.

The Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office, his deputies, heads of main directorates and services and their deputies are appointed by the President of Russia and don't need to be approved by any other government body. Other staff is appointed by the Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office.

On 25 March 2004, Vladimir Putin undertook a major reorganisation of this institution by a decree.[2] Only two deputy chiefs remained out of seven. The Press Office and the Information Office were merged into the Press and Information Office, the Pardon Directorate and the Citizenship Directorate were merged into the Directorate for Protecting Citizens' Constitutional Rights. The Personnel Directorate and the State Decorations Directorate were merged into the Personnel and State Decorations Directorate, the Protocol Directorate and the Organisation Directorate were merged into the Protocol and Organization Directorate. The Territorial Directorate was included in the Domestic Policy Directorate. The Economic Directorate was abolished, the Civil Service Directorate was created.

The Presidential Executive Office of Russia is situated in Moscow where it holds offices in several buildings in Kitay-gorod and inside the Kremlin.[1]

Presidential Envoys to Federal districts of RussiaEdit

The Federal districts of Russia are a level of administration for the convenience of the federal government and have been organised in 2000. They are not the constituent units of Russia (which are the federal subjects). Each district includes several federal subjects and each federal district has a presidential envoy (whose official title is Plenipotentiary Representative). The official task of the Plenipotentiary Representative is simply to oversee the work of federal agencies in the regions, although in practice this oversight is extensive and of considerable consequence. Federal districts' envoys serve as liaisons between the federal subjects and the federal government and are primarily responsible for overseeing the compliance of the federal subjects with the federal laws.

This institution is organised as followed:[5]
