No war, no natural disasters, and the death rate exceeds the birth rate”, — said the Deputy Chairman of the party Central Committee Yaroslav Sidorov. He stressed that the ratio of these factors should be regarded as “a decisive index of social well-being.”
According to Sidorova, if the power in the region cannot solve the problem, “no other it will not solve the problem.” “We would like to and the law was provided for the resignation of the highest officials in such cases and that was the unwritten law for the official”, — he stressed.
