Activists propose abolishing the Ministry of East Development
A petition on the abolition of the Ministry for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic appeared on the Russian Public Initiative website. The author of the document considers the activities of this department meaningless, and often harmful.
As noted in petitionsDuring its existence, the Ministry of East Development did not prove the necessity of its existence and often only duplicated the functions of the plenipotentiary representation. The author of the document notes that during the existence of the Ministry, the economic indicators of the DFO regions only fell, and the outflow of the population increased.
The author of the petition was also dissatisfied with the attraction of emigrants and foreign entrepreneurs to the Far East. Such measures, in his opinion, create risks of interethnic conflicts, as well as increase the outflow of capital and public discontent.
Now about 500 people voted for the elimination of the Ministry of Eastern Development, 15 voted against. According to the author of the petition, the abolition of the ministry will save budget money and prevent great damage to the economy of the DFO regions.
