MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday will check how his instructions are followed. The president will hold a video conference to know what is done on his instructions in the housing sector and for improvement of the system of state purchases, the Kremlin site reported.
Medvedev introduced the format of video conferences in 2010 to give directions to executives and control the fulfillment. He held four such conferences last year and two this year. According to the head of state, such form of work is efficient and dynamic.
Traditionally, the head of the control department, Konstantin Chuychenko, will make a report on the results of the checks, and then, Medvedev will call some federal and regional officials for them to report.
The president’s decree came into force on July 1, 2011 for federal and regional executives to bear personal responsibility for timely and proper fulfillment of his assignments and instructions.
The themes of housing services and state purchases were repeatedly raised at previous conferences. But many of the problems requiring the president's interference still remain.
