The Mayor Of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin

The mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin on his page in “Vkontakte” commented on the proposal to move the capital of the Urals. The mayor called the idea “genius”, given the finances, which must be spent on the resettlement of officials living in the European part of the country.

“To spend a trillion or so officials refers to the 8 thousand km of 110 million Russians living in the European part. Before officials exiled to Siberia and to the East, but less expensive,” wrote mayor.

The proposal to move the capital of the Urals was contained in the draft doctrine, “the Doctrine of razmokanija”, which was sent to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Institute of demography, migration and regional development, the valid state adviser of the Russian Federation, 3rd class Yuri Krupnov.

According Krupnova, Russia “hypercentralisation” Moscow region “has absorbed almost one fifth of the entire Russian population” and the national development punctuated only by 15-25 Russian cities, which are home to more than 50 percent of Russians. For a more effective development of the country, he advised them to move away from an economy centered in Moscow, to the development of the whole country, especially the Far East and Siberia.

Some state Duma deputies and Federation Council members opposed this initiative. First Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Federative structure, regional policy, local government and Northern Affairs Stepan Kirichuk called her artificial.

At the same time, the Chairman of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Mikhail Emelyanov found the idea interesting and helps to ensure the integrity of the country. However, from a practical point of view the project difficult to implement because it will require large expenditures.
