Mayor of Vladivostok does not intend to refuse from resigning after meeting with Kozhemyako

The head of Vladivostok, Vitaly Verkeenko, said he did not intend to abandon his decision to resign. He commented on the reasons for his departure and said that he did not play other people's games and did not run along curved corridors.

“Of course, this decision was not easy for me, but in the current situation I have neither the right nor the desire to let down or deceive the residents. I see and feel a crisis of trust in the government, in order to overcome it, it is important to fulfill the promises made to people. But in the current system, this, unfortunately, is impossible. It contains a program error in the relations between the municipality, the region and the federal government, ”the city administration press service quotes Vitaly Verkeenko as saying.

According to him, annual tax revenues in Vladivostok amount to 56 billion rubles, but only six billion remain in the city budget. He also said that the development of the capital of Primorye needs the status of a city of federal significance.

“I know how to change this situation, but I do not play other people's games and do not run along strange curved corridors. Cockroach Races is not my sport. I believe that a thief should be in prison, law enforcement agencies should work on the ground, not wait for a call from Moscow, and officials should love their city, not money, ”said Vitaly Verkeenko.

According to the mayor of Vladivostok, so far, the city is not ready for changes - there are too many “interested”, besides there is an unspoken rule to negotiate with the “elites”, and this contradicts the interests of the city.
