SIMFEROPOL, March 27 /ITAR-TASS/. State power in Crimea has been almost fully cleansed of corrupt elements, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov said Thursday during a televised linkup with the Moscow region Governor, Andrei Vorobyov.
“The vertical of state power has been vastly cleansed of corrupt elements,” he said, adding that investigation agencies would soon assess the malpractices of those unscrupulous officials.
Businessmen investing in Crimea should have the confidence that their monies will have maximum protection here, Aksyonov said.
“I give the guarantees to the Crimeans, to investors, to businessmen from the Moscow region that not a single ruble in Crimea will be stolen and all the attempts to steal will bring about harsh punishment,” CrimeaInform news agency quoted him.
Aksyonov thanked the Moscow region authorities for the financial assistance in the amount of about 100 million rubles (around $ 2.8 million), which they had allocated to Crimea. These monies would be spent for the solution of essential problems of the Crimean Peninsula, he said.
