Chukotka decided to "withdraw" the category of subsidized food from regional centers

In Anadyr, a meeting of the government of the Chukotka Autonomous District was held with the participation of the heads of municipal districts.

One of the central themes of the meeting was the provision of food to the population of the region, in particular, socially important food, for which fixed prices have been set in Chukotka since 2011. Head of the Department of Finance, Economy and Property Relations Andrei Mingazov reminded that today the list contains 24 positions, there are substitutes for 6 among them.

- The government of Chukotka has a policy of curbing the growth of food prices since 2011. The next cycle is from July 2014 to June 2015. - The practice will continue, but with some nuances. First of all, socially significant products will remain only in the villages, because there initially the income of the population is lower. We will move away from the practice of subsidizing trade in the district centers, thereby enabling small businesses to develop. The food list itself will be revised and refined, it will remain on the order of 10 most important positions. As before, the price for them will be adjusted for inflation, growth in transportation and other expenses, said Andrei Mingazov.

The proposal of the Government was supported by the municipalities. As commented the head of the Providensky municipal district, Sergey Shestopalov, private business has always determined the pricing policy in trade, so the decision to “withdraw” the category of subsidized food from regional centers, where merchants are actively present, is logical.

Particular attention was paid to the preparation for the flood hazard period and the fire season. The latter was informed by Leonid Nikolaev, the head of the Department of Agricultural Policy and Nature Management. According to him, all events are held in regular mode.

- The district approved a plan for the detection, prevention and suppression of forest and tundra fires. From the beginning of May until the end of the fire hazard period, a regional forestry dispatch service will operate in Chukotka. The Government Decree set the start date of the fire hazard season (June 1) and approved a list of localities that are at risk of forest fires. These are villages of Anadyr and Bilibinsky districts, in which the necessary special equipment, purchased at the expense of the federal budget, is already in place, ”said Leonid Nikolaev.
