MOSCOW, April 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Alexey Anisimov, the head of the executive committee of the All-Russia People’s Front, said on Saturday, April 5, that revealing and fighting corruption in echelons of power was the front’s main task and objective.
“Our main task is to fight corruption in the actions of state power bodies and municipal authorities,” Anisimov told anchorman Sergei Brilyov in his Saturday programme on Russia 1 TV channel.
The All-Russia People’s Front was behind the recent resignations of Mikhail Yurevich, the governor of Russia’s Chelyabinsk region, and Sergei Bozhenov, the head of the Volgograd region. The Front has serious grudges against Nikolai Denin, the governor of the Bryansk region.
“The People’s Front gives public assessment to governors’ work. We (the All-Russia People’s Front) are going to have plenty of such mechanisms, primarily designed to deal with corruption,” Anisimov said. “It is a People’s Front,” he added, answering a question about the above-mentioned governors.
Prior to being appointed the head of the executive committee of the All-Russia People’s Front, Anisimov had been deputy chief of the internal policy department at the Russian president’s administration.
President Putin appointed Anisimov’s predecessor, Andrei Bocharov, as acting governor of the Volgograd region on April 2 to replace Sergei Bozhenov who had resigned.
