UFA, 28 January 2016. /Bashinform News Agency, Ksenia Kalinina/. According to Bashkortostan Statistics Agency, in January-November of the last year the average monthly wages in the republic amounted to 25311.6 rubles. Real wages taking into account the consumer price index in this period against January-November 2014 amounted to 90.1 percent, across Russia – to 90.8.
