“The level of discipline leaves much to be desired”
For example, he cited information about how to obtain funds and the Karelia Region from the Fund of assistance to reforming of housing and communal services, which should have been spent on regional programs on resettlement of citizens from emergency housing. “The payment was made fairly regularly: the TRANS-Baikal region received in 2014, slightly more than 340 million rubles, in 2015 – slightly more than 61 million rubles. At the same time, by the beginning of 2016 commitments were met on 82% for 2014, and commitments for 2015 have not been implemented at all,” said Sands. “That’s what was established,” he added.

According to the representative of the Kremlin, “about the same situation in Karelia”. “In Karelia the funds is also considerable: by 2014 has received 734 million rubles, in 2015 – 244 million, just 21 percent two years filled with obligations,” he enumerated these Sands. He also clarified that the obligations of Karelia in 2015 for the resettlement of dilapidated housing executed only by slightly more than 11 percent.
“In this case, for delay in fulfillment of contractual obligations of the entities (the Federation) must be financially responsible, that is, according to the Zabaykalsky Krai must pay penalties in the amount of 400 million roubles, budget of Karelia should take 300 million rubles”, – said the representative of the Kremlin. Therefore, in his opinion, “the situation is not very good.”
“The same goes for other options – granting of budgetary credits, in this respect, the level of discipline leaves much to be desired and in fact, and in another region,” Peskov said. He also stressed that in the TRANS-Baikal and Karelia is “bloated management systems – much more than we need for all the rules.” For example, he cited the number of employees of state bodies of the Baikal region, which is one of the highest in the Siberian Federal district, and almost twice the national average.
