MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the habit of state government bodies to exert control over businesses has proved to be very tenacious. "In recent years, we’ve been doing a lot to remove administrative barriers for entrepreneurs, to release them from excessive, obtrusive attention by regulatory bodies… However, the habit to control businesses has proved to be very tenacious," Putin told the Prosecutor-General’s Office board.
He noted that over the past five years Russia’s regulatory agencies had come up with proposals to hold about 6 million planned and over 200,000 surprise on-site inspections. However, only half of them have been recognized by the prosecutor’s office as justified. "Please continue to monitor the situation, interacting closely with the relevant agencies. But the prosecutor’s office must be guided by feasibility and law requirements," the Russian leader said.
