Russia has posted a record-low unemployment rate this year, Vice Premier Valentina Matviyenko told a Moscow press conference Tuesday. According to her, the current rate of joblessness in Russia is 8.8 percent of the country's working population. Some 6.2 million job seekers are now registered with Russia's unemployment agencies, while the number of vacancies exceeds that of jobless people by 60,000.
