GURZUF SETTLEMENT (Republic of Crimea), May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Monday he had signed a government resolution to transfer control of Crimea’s mineral resources to local authorities.
“The document is called upon to make the management of the state mineral resources fund on the territory of the republic more effective,” Medvedev said.
The Russian government is also carrying out work to transfer a part of powers from the federal to the regional level, under which a decision has been taken on the mineral resources, the premier said.
“In general, I would like the process of the transfer of powers to proceed more energetically,” Medvedev said, urging government members to pay more attention to this issue.
The Russian premier also said that the system of the bodies of power being created in Crimea should be “compact, effective and, of course, oriented primarily at Crimean residents".
