Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed 40 candidates who have special merits to the country and can join the updated composition of the Public Chamber. This is stated in a message on the Kremlin's website.

It is noted that half of the applicants represent professional and creative unions, employers' associations and their associations, as well as other non-profit organizations created to protect the interests of individual groups.

After the President sends candidates to the members of the Public Chamber, the formation of its new composition will begin. Over the next month, public chambers in the regions should choose one representative, including new regions, according to a statement on the Kremlin's website.

The Public Chamber exercises control over the activities of federal executive authorities and regional executive authorities. It was established in 2005. It consists of 40 people according to the presidential quota, another 43 people from public associations and one representative from the regions. The current composition of the Public Chamber was approved in 2020. His term of office expires this year.
