Ural Industrial – Ural Polar

Governors of the six regions of the Ural Federal District traveled to a small town called Kharp located on the Yamal Peninsula. Together with Nikolai Vinnichenko, President’s Envoy in the Urals, they officially opened a new electric power station.

The event is significant since the power station is one of the first functioning electric power facilities of the grand project Ural Industrial – Ural Polar. The station is equipped with modern units from Germany and fuels on natural gas.

“The station was built to provide local customers with stable supplies of heat and electricity at a lower cost, to replace old-fashioned diesel power station, and to create a power generation facility for future industrial partners like Kongor-Chome JSC and others”, reports Boris Kirrilov, deputy general director of the Ural Industrial – Ural Polar Corporation.

Out of gas

Gazprom’s affiliate company in Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous District SeverRegionGaz has run out of patience. Local housing management companies owe it over 250 million rubles for gas supplies. SeverRegionGaz had to cut down supplies of natural gas by half in a number of large areas of Yugra, including Nefteyugansk and Nyagan.

Director of Surgut’s Foundation for Facilitation of Small Business Vera Ivanishina spoke with UralPolit.Ru about the situation.

“Housing management companies try to cover their debts by issuing additional bills to people for extra heating during winter months”, she says.

“Who is going to pay if unemployment is attacking so many workers? People often don’t earn enough money to pay their utility bills. We’ve got 50 % of poor people here”.

Governor wins

Governor of Sverdlovsk Region team achieved a big victory in the political arena last week. Serious amendments of the Charter of the Region, which basically is a regional constitution, have been adopted by the Regional Duma in the first reading.

According to the new Charter, governor’s term of service has been prolonged from 4 to 5 years. Additionally, Regional Duma will have be a single chamber establishment, instead of current two chambers.

Governor’s Counselor Vadim Dubichev says investors are going to give high assessment to the work of Alexander Misharin.

“Governor’s team has demonstrated its effectiveness and assertiveness in achieving their goals… political players and investors will see that the region has a leader who defines the strategy of the region’s development and whose team is able to solve complex tasks”.

Budgeting

Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Alexander Misharin delivered one of the year’s most important statements regarding the present and the future of the regional budget. The public’s reaction has been versatile.

Mayor of Ekaterinburg Arkady Chernetsky paid attention to the governor’s idea of raising money through making governmental enterprises joint-stock companies.

Deputy of the Regional Duma Vladimir Mashkov considers the statement to be fully in the flow of a general political trend of the federal government.

Social programs will be facilitated, a new veteran law will be provided for, income tax will be cut down to stimulate innovative business, Vladimir Mashkov comments.

Additionally, 40 billion rubles will be allocated for the reform of transport industry in the region until 2015.

Managing cities

A commission comprised of high rank officials and deputies of Chelyabinsk Region reviewed candidates for the position of city-manager of Miass, an industrial town with considerable potential for growth.

The winner of the competition is Alexander Lyubimov, who used to be Housing Department Director in Chelyabinsk administration. He starts work in Miass on July 15, 2010.

The new city-manager has been chosen as a crisis manager whose task is to “boost” Miass, editor in chief of a local newspaper Vladimir Strelnikov recons.

Important goals include reforming infrastructure of the city and preparing conditions for effective investments of the budget money.

United Russia in Kurgan

United Russia political party changes regional secretaries of its divisions involving new leaders into the political play. Thus, last week Kurgan’s division received a new secretary – Sergey Rudenko – who is social policy department director in the region.

Ivan Kamshilov, chairman of Opora Rossii NPO, comments: “Change of secretary can be explained also by the bad results United Russia faced during the elections in March this year”. The new person will work with younger generation to create the reserve of voters for the party to provide better results in 2011.
