PYATIGORSK, August 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes it is necessary to tighten control over the use of funds for the development of the North Caucasus. The premier said this on Monday at the meeting of the government commission on the North Caucasian Federal District’s social and economic development.
"Particular attention must be paid to the use of the funds," he noted, adding that there were problems with it.
According to the premier, state and public control must be ensured.
Medvedev suggested forming a special working group.
"Social and economic stability, and it means well-being and, not less, people's security will depend on how we will work here," he noted.
It is very important that federal and regional structures and local authorities should work in coordination, the premier added.
