MOSCOW, April 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Sergei Shoigu, appointed as the Moscow region’s governor, will form his team within three months, he told the Russian News Service radio station on Friday.
Before taking the office, he plans to choose candidates for the Moscow’s region’s government.
“I can say, I do not have any limitations regarding either the team or anything else. If somebody expects Shoigu to come tomorrow and start waving a sword back and forwards, this is not true. There are professional people, but there are those who should be involved in different things. But this is to be considered accurately. Every person should be analysed,” he said.
Sergei Shoigu supported Boris Gromov in his aspiration to become a member of the Federation Council and to represent the Moscow region there.
“I believe, that over twelve years he at least deserves to be a senator representing the Moscow region,” he said.
Sergei Shoigu, confirmed for a position of the Moscow region’s governor, plans to structure the work with migrants.
This issue will be settled jointly with Russia’s Migration Service and with counterparts from territories of the Central Federal District, he told audience of the Russian News Service Radio Station on Friday. Shoigu said he plans to offer measures to counteract the inflow of guest workers to the region. He supports the system of quotas, where employees will announce how many highly qualified specialists they would need.
Sergei Shoigu, approved as governor of the Moscow Region, has said that he has friendly relations with the Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
“We have a friendly relationship. I would not want to compete, who is going to press whom,” he said on the Russian News Service Radio Station.
Shoigu said that they have always been able to find a common language with Sobyanin and “build normal relations.” “We have one country. Moscow and the Moscow Region are not France and Holland. In this situation, I am surprised hearing some media reports – expressing such a joy in connection with taking of such a huge territory (Greater Moscow project) from the region. As if we have won Hokkaido,” Shoigu said.
Touching upon the advantages of the Greater Moscow project, he admitted that so far he has no concrete opinion on this matter. “It is necessary to think over this issue again, to consider all its aspects. Anyway, I do not have any unequivocal opinion yet – whether it’s right or wrong. I cannot have it,” Shoigu said.
He also believes that Moscow and the region need to build garbage processing plants, and as many as possible.
Sergei Shoigu will take the office of the Moscow region’s governor on May 11. Before the new governor’s inauguration, Boris Gromov will be managing the region.
