The Minister of foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov headed the Russian media rating of Ministers for the year 2016. According to a study conducted by the company “Medialogia”, he walked up to defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov, who took, respectively, second and third positions.

The three leaders of the media rating has not changed in comparison with 2015. The rating was formed on the basis of specific media index, which takes into account not only the number of mentions in Federal and regional media (about 37 500 sources), but the influence of the source, character references and the role of the object in the message.

The most noticeable movement in the table media rating last year saw the Minister of health Veronika Skvortsova (+8 points in comparison with year 2015) and Minister of construction and housing Mikhail men (+4). For the first time the rating included the new Ministers – education Minister Olga Vasilyeva (8-e a place), the head of the Ministry Maxim Oreshkin (19th place), as well as the Minister of sport Pavel Kolobkov (20).

The largest drop at the end of 2016, the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky (lost 3 positions in comparison with year 2015) and Minister of agriculture Alexander Tkachev (-3).
