Rostelecom, Russian government launch e-government services portal

Rostelecom announced on Monday that it has completed work on the Electronic Government portal, an online portal allowing the public quick access to public service resources.

Rostelecom worked with the Russian Ministry of Communications to develop the portal, which allows registered users to gain instant access to government services.

Users must create a profile with their first and last name, date of birth, passport details and SNILS. After a verification process, users can use the online portal to pay traffic fines, apply for a patent or trademark, make an appointment with a state-sponsored doctor and obtain detailed information about public health programs. Some postal services may also be ordered through the portal.

In total, more than nine million government agencies and private service providers representing approximately 112,000 public utilities are registered with Electronic Government across all regions of Russia.
