MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Deputy Secretary of Russian Public Chamber Vladislav Grib will pay a visit to the Russian Republic of Crimea on Tuesday to inaugurate the permanent office of Russian Public Chamber on the peninsula. The press service of the country’s Public Chamber reported this to ITAR-TASS.
“These are two permanent offices of the Public Chamber in the Russian Crimean cities of Simferopol and Sevastopol to consolidate local civil society, develop effective human rights activity and assist to all-Russia public associations to open local branches,” Grib noted.
He noted that the Public Chamber regularly received addresses from people asking to participate in the chamber’s work. “We are asked whether Crimean and Sevastopol residents may, for instance, delegate their representative. There are also many requests to explain Russian legislation,” Grib added. “To help our colleagues to tackle current situation we decided to inaugurate a permanent office of the Public Chamber in Crimea and Sevastopol,” he noted.
“All leading institutions of Russian civil society were offered to work in local offices,” the deputy secretary of the Public Chamber said. “The main task is to create an effective floor to develop regional branches of specific Russian non-governmental organizations,” he said. He added that their main mission will be “personal reception and regular work with local citizens.”
During a working trip the Public Chamber’s official is also expected to meet with the leadership of the Russian Republic of Crimea and the Russian city of Sevastopol and leaders of local non-governmental organizations.
