MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Most Federal purpose-oriented programs (FPOPs) in Russia are being implemented effectively, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday in his opening remarks at a Cabinet meeting here.
"Forty-seven FPOPs are currently in operation," Medvedev said. "Most of them, in the appraisal of the Ministry of Economic Development, are being implemented effectively".
The head of cabinet added, "Questions remain as regards the implementation of several FPOPs - this is betters than the indicators of 2012 when the implementation of five FPOPs was found to be unsatisfactory".
At the same time, the prime minister pointed out, "The state of affairs with the financing of FPOPs from regional and local budgets, as well as from extra-budgetary sources has deteriorated". Medvedev acknowledged that this problem is known and it is under discussion. "This is connected with the overall economic situation," he said.
In 2013, the average level of the fulfillment of obligation for co-financing accounted for about 76% of the planned scope — this was worse than that in 2012 by almost 20%. "Of course, it is essential to find out who and why fails to fulfill obligations under the Programs. One must also examine what can be done to normalize the situation, although the underfunding of FPOPs has an effect on the development of regions and the country as a whole," Medvedev pointed out.
