MOSCOW, December 21, (ITAR-TASS). Russian parliamentarians will move to a new place no earlier than in five years, President Vladimir Putin’s chief property manager, Vladimir Kozhin, said.
“We found a good place for a parliamentary centre, but no final decision has been taken yet,” he told reporters, declining to name the venue for the yet-to-be centre.
The project to take two houses of the Russian parliament, State Duma and Federation Council, and their reception offices to one building has already been discussed for several years.
Kozhin explained a delay in this issue with “financial reasons.” “If funds appear, they will be spent on the project’s preparation, but the 2014 budget envisages no money for the parliamentary centre,” he said, expressing the hope that the necessary financing could be fixed in the budget for 2015-2016.
At present, the State Duma and the Federation Council work in buildings not adjusted for them, the former buildings of the Soviet Union’s economic planning committee Gosplan and construction committee Gosstroi. Moreover, their departments are scattered in twenty buildings in Moscow’s centre.
