MOSCOW, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A Moscow government meeting on Tuesday approved the programme Safe City for 2012-16.

Over 192 billion roubles will be allocated in five years for the implementation.

The volume of financing will amount to 192,688 million roubles, including 177,476 million roubles from the budget funds, the head of Moscow's regional security department Valery Kadatsky said.

The programme was discussed at public hearings, including in federal media, and the discussions resulted in some corrections.

The programme calls for measures to ensure order, prevent offences and protect the population and the city's areas from technical accidents and emergencies.

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the financial parameters of the programme should be corrected in accordance with the federal legislation changes. "With the new decisions taken into account, the figures must be corrected. The work with the city police has already started. The parameters must be known clearly before it is submitted to the Moscow Duma," Sobyanin noted.

When the programme was under consideration, it was noted that its objective was to ensure comprehensive security in Moscow, reduce the number of offences at public places, including grave crimes of an extremist character and reduce the number of crimes connected with drug traffic. The programme also plans measures to develop the preventive system, to prevent crimes committed by underage offenders and crimes against children.

The city authorities expect the programme to lower the crime rate in the capital, increase the equipping of law-enforcement services with technical devices to 60-65 percent, reduce the number of grave crimes by 15-20 percent, lower the level of economic crimes by 20-25 percent, reduce the number of traffic accidents by 22 percent and decrease the number of foreigners illegally arriving to work in Moscow by 10-12 percent.

Moscow has decided to change the system to support the Black Sea Fleet and will send funds directly to the Moscow House in Sevastopol, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in an interview on Vesti FM Radio on Tuesday.

The mayor explained that formerly money had been transferred to the special Black Sea Fleet support fund, and ten percent of the sum provided by Moscow was used to maintain the fund.

The fund was managed the way that all the prices for purchases were increased 19 percent as compared to the market ones. That is 20 percent were left for themselves (the managers), Sobyanin noted. The fleet received at best only a quarter of what was bought, and even that was distributed in a strange way. For example, equipment for kindergartens turned out to appear in Dagestan, and ambulances in Astrakhan.

The money will be given to the Moscow House in Sevastopol, the mayor said, adding that the house itself would transfer 74 million roubles to provide social aid for Black Sea fleet veterans. It will be four times more than now, Sobyanin noted.


Besides, the number of passport and visa offices will be increased, and a database of information on persons who have no citizenship will be formed.
