Most of the questions coming into direct line with Vladimir Putin required to solve the local government, but citizens are often easier to reach the head of the state. This was reported by press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, the correspondent “Tapes.ru”, Wednesday, June 14.
“Such treatment is very painful to read. It is not even the leaders and officials who are at the forefront of communication with citizens. The callousness of these officials, the unwillingness to help. Unsubscribe — this is rejection of people and write about it,” said Sands, commenting on the content of applications.
However, he added that the regional heads look straight lines and quickly react to problem situations.
According to the official representative of the Kremlin, at the moment, citizens received about 1.6 million hits to a straight line. In most cases the Russians are concerned about issues related to social themes, utilities and health care. “Social issues continue to remain at the top of the agenda. This variety of social issues relating to salaries and pensions, and social benefits. The problems of housing, of course. Then the issues associated with public health. A lot of them across the country,” he said.
The foreign policy issues of concern to residents of Russia are much smaller. “To a lesser extent. I would say, not even in tenth place,” said Sands, answering the question of journalists, how much citizens care about foreign policy — events in Syria and Ukraine.
In may 2016, the head of the Commission of Public chamber of Russia for social policy, labour relations and quality of life of citizens Vladimir Slepak was offered to draw a straight line at least once a quarter. This, in his opinion, will encourage officials to work more effectively.
