MOSCOW, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister and the presidential envoy to the North Caucasus federal district Alexander Khloponin is sceptical about the idea from Dagestan’s head to divide the republic into four territory districts.
“I believe, now the time is not for dividing, but rather for uniting,” Khloponin said in an interview with Itar-Tass.
“I am very sceptical about divisions of the kind,” he said adding that certain time earlier he participated in uniting processes, which brought together Taimyr (peninsula in far north), Evenkia (where the Tunguska event happened in 1908) and Krasnoyarsk Territory (north-east).
“I could not see anything but positive in the process of uniting,” he said. “Thus, of course, (this issue) needs additional studies, but anyway I do support uniting rather than dividing.”
In late 2013, Dagestan’s head Ramzan Abdulatipov inked orders appointing his representatives in the republic’s four districts. In his opinion, a lack of clear supervisors in the regions caused insufficient growth of the economy and poor positions of the republic’s industries.
The newly appointed representatives will report weekly to the republic’s head on the situations in the districts, offering productive communication between the local and federal authorities.
