MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow signed a city law, which permits the use of the Banner of Victory at the Victory Day celebrations, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said at a plenary meeting of the sixth Moscow Civil Forum “Society and Authorities. The Strategy of Development” here on Wednesday.
This initiative, which was put up for debates by the veteran organizations “was supported by the Moscow City Duma and a relevant city law was signed recently,” the mayor noted.
The replica of the Banner of Victory will be hoisted obligatorily with the Russian national flag on Victory Day in Moscow. Under the city law, the copies of the Banner of Victory “can be also used by the Moscow authorities in the festivities over the events of the Great Patriotic War [1941-1945].” The copy of the Banner of Victory is a full replica of the storm flag of the 150th Idritsa Rifle Division, which was hoisted over the Reichstag in Berlin on May 1, 1945.
Speaking on lawmaking initiatives, which are coming to the authorities from people, the mayor also noted that the city government had already taken several similar decisions. “Starting from the simplest decisions over the changes and refurbishment of buildings and the cancellation of the permissions for air conditioning systems to complicated decisions over the construction and designing of buildings,” Sobyanin said, recalling that dozens of coordination instances, “which were excessive in this process,” were cancelled.
The same situation emerged with administrative barriers in small business, he went on to say. “Far from all is put in order there, but the first successes are made and the first steps are taken,” the mayor acknowledged. In this respect, he emphasized the fact that all foresaid decisions were actually worked out jointly with public organizations.
