SIMFEROPOL, August 5. /TASS/. Crimea's economic development is threatened by inefficient local government, the chief of Russia's Security Council told delegates as a conference discussed proposed strategy to drive the new Russian republic's future.
"This is largely because a strategic goal for regional development has not been formulated," council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev told his Simferopol city audience on Wednesday.
Plans would be presented to the Russian government for the peninsula's economic and social advance, Patrushev said.
"Formulation of these documents will provide for the region's balanced development while safeguarding Russia's national security," the council chief added.
