    MOSCOW, March 19, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - In the past week before the elections, citizens of the country wrote to Mr. Putin about the GDP, the housing reform and low wages.

    According to the information of the Russian president's department for the work with citizens, at the Kremlin's official website, on March 9-13, Vladimir Putin received 11,775 letters, with 571 of them in foreign languages.

    Thus, the international union of economists suggested in its letter that Russia's socio-economic concept be oriented to doubling GDP by 2010.

    The letters "announce the need for strict control over the permanently growing prices for major goods and services," according to the department's information.

    Besides, there are recommendations to speed up the housing reform, which is often reduced to merely raising the tariffs, the authors of the letters say.

    Messages linked with the reform of the executive power say that the administrative reform should be extended to lower government levels as well.
