Matter of the governor Yuri Evdokimov, will the Public Chamber

February 18 2009

Community organizations in the city of Murmansk appealed to members of the Public Chamber of Russia to pay attention to what is happening in the area and assess the situation.

"Our resource-rich region is literally at the brink of survival - is said in the letter was signed by representatives who have put youth sports clubs, associations of disabled persons and war veterans, etc. - The current governor Yuri Evdokimov ruled the region for nearly 13 years. For this time the region has not done anything tangible step in its socio-economic development. The budget of the area once again adopted a maximum allowable percentage of the deficit. And this is despite the fact that in the run Russia's largest corporations. Means area year after year is spent on bad protracted. Estimates for the construction and repair of these sites every year bigger and bigger. The money allocated for these objects, shamelessly being developed by firms with close connections to the governor and his inner circle ... "

Socio-economic status of the region is really depressing. Since 1997, the Governor promises "in 2011 in Murmansk build 1.5 million square meters of housing." However, the pace of building small. In 2007 the area was handed over about 30,000 square meters in 2008 - no more than 15,000 in 2009, planned to be no more than 20 thousand squares.

Brought to a state of bankruptcy ice Murmansk Marine Fishing Port, which did not stop their work even in the most difficult years of World War II, the Nazis under fire. Miraculously he now be economically inefficient. In June 2008, it planned to put up for auction, but the government's decision this initiative, in which a unique port could be sold for a pittance in private hands, was foiled.

Incidentally, it was an attempt to clean up fishing port to the hands of experts explain the desire Yuri Evdokimov oppose a candidate for mayor of Murmansk on the "United Russia" of his protege. In this case, as is typical, the governor himself is a member of "ER." However, the prospect of getting into the ownership of Murmansk fishing port - so tempting idea that for the sake of it can be what you want to sacrifice principles. The fact that in the conduct of the mayor is the entire urban infrastructure, including adjacent to the port. With such leverage, it is easy to achieve a desired result. For example, once again raise the issue of ineffectiveness of the owner of the port, which is the state. And then switch back to the question of its privatization.

"The elections mayor of Murmansk held March 1, 2009. Efforts Governor campaign gets dirty and scandalous nature. There are some indications suggest that a wave of unfair campaign are people from the governor's inner circle who view the city as their personal business site. What are the consequences this will clearly evident in the plight of the area - write social activists, we believe that public scrutiny will help protect the lawful rights and interests of citizens "- they conclude.

One who signed the appeal, the head of the Murmansk regional public organization "Club of Young People with Disabilities" Valentine Plus Svetlana Buryakova talk about specific claims to the leadership of the field: "Until now we do not have in day-care center for disabled youth. This is a lot of talk and we turned on this issue to the governor in 1996. But the question was not solved ... "But the head of the field are time and money to solve other problems.

In the Public Chamber of Russian Federation confirmed the receipt of the appeal.As stated by a member of the OD of the Russian Federation Leonid Davydov, "we will certainly keep this thing in control." "Maybe the governor time to go, once these disappointing findings, and the public is concerned," - said a member of the Public Chamber.
