Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to Vladikavkaz turned educational-cultural-political. He attended the advanced school, Academy wrestling, North-Ossetian State Philharmonic, and in the evening talked with the winners of primaries “United Russia” in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. During the working meeting on issues of construction of schools in the North Caucasus region, Medvedev, noting the importance of quality education in principle, said that it helps to discourage Teens from participating in various illegal extremist activities. Whether hinted at swept the country rallies against corruption, where the detained teenagers, or imply involvement of the younger generation in questionable groups.
After visiting the school, initially built the world in 1930 and completely rebuilt in 2016, with the result that it now meets all modern requirements, Medvedev went to the largest in the South of Russia the unique sports facility for training wrestling. In the Academy, a sports complex which covers an area of 4 hectares, we can simultaneously deal with hundreds of athletes. In addition, the Academy is a boarding school for gifted children. In the program of the working visit of the Russian Prime Minister was visiting the State Philharmonic of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania – here was born the Ossetian symphonic music. Played here by Sviatoslav Richter, and Tikhon Khrennikov, and Mstislav Rostropovich… And in the end of 2016, it opened after a long General repair and should soon receive the status of a branch of the Mariinsky theatre.
After a tour of the Philharmonic, which was conducted for the governmental delegation of the conductor of the Mariinsky theatre Valery Gergiev and listen to the choir singing, Medvedev went to the meeting on construction of schools in the North Caucasus Federal district, which was also attended by Deputy Chairman of the Russian Government Alexander Khloponin, Minister of education and science of the Russian Federation Olga Vasilyeva, the Minister for North Caucasus Affairs Lev Kuznetsov and the head regions. “Affordable quality education is a good springboard for future achievements. Not least is the issue of preserving a single cultural space in the country and countering those who are trying to engage adolescents in illegal extremist activity”, – said Dmitry Medvedev, and it is important those present nodded in response.
The situation in the North Caucasus Federal district is a special. Here traditionally have many children, and the proportion of young people is much higher than in other Russian regions. Every tenth student in the country learns in the North Caucasus. And many of them in two or three shifts, because schools are sorely lacking. A particularly difficult situation in the Chechen Republic and Dagestan Republic. By the way, Transmeta in our country there are only three regions, and two of them were in the district. “Agree transmanche – this is not education,” – said Medvedev to the Minister of education. And that, of course, agreed. the goal is to eliminate training in three-shift is already and gradually approaching.
With 2014 in the district is built about 60 educational institutions; this year should see 14.5 thousand seats for students. But, according to Medvedev, the problem requires almost 4 times more (about 57 thousand), and that at least 114 new schools. “The reason is that we have time for birth. Besides, there are plenty of old school buildings, and even major repairs does not always save the situation. In General, it requires serious money,” described the problem Medvedev. According to estimates Vasilyeva, “serious money” is an additional 10 billion rubles to the 25 billion already allocated for large-scale Federal program of construction of new schools throughout the country (this year it received the status of priority). The money should be allocated to the 19 regions, 4 of which are in North Caucasus Federal district, where it plans to build 9 more schools.
…The evening Dmitry Medvedev has spent in the company of the winners of the preliminary vote of the all-Russian political party “United Russia”. “Well, what are y’all doing?” asked the Prime Minister have humbly lined up in a line of leaders of the primaries and allowed them to sit down. And then asked, what are the main questions asked by people and how they plan to solve them, because the words United Russia should not rush. One of the candidates with his usual Oriental courtesy, told Medvedev that the whole week in Vladikavkaz it rained and only with the arrival of Medvedev, the sun came out. And then asked whether the other parties to adopt the practice of holding primaries. “This institution works. And helps the “United Russia” to win. Do we want the other party won the elections? I am not,” pragmatic noticed the LADIES.
Another winner of the primaries said that “ER” is often accused that it is beneficial to cancel the absentee ballots and asked what he thinks about Medvedev who from this measure will benefit. “Will definitely benefit the Russian people,” began a pompous Head of government and told how difficult it was before to the absentee ballots that led to the fact that a significant part of travel to go to the polls and, according to some estimates, were lost from 5 million to 15 million votes. Now it’s over.
One lady asked Medvedev about his attitude to the holiday collection. He replied that these things exist in many countries and in some places the resort fee “in the hundreds of dollars or euros”. He was in the Soviet times and amounted to one ruble per person. Now the introduction will help a number of regions (in an experiment involving the Kuban, Crimea, Altai and Stavropol) to develop health care and sanatorium-resort system. However, they should carefully analyze the risks – what if the collection will not be lift for people that can create unpleasant consequences for resort potential.
Medvedev spoke about the quality of the North-Caucasian roads, which are characterized by the term “not a fountain” “I love to sit behind the wheel, when you come to regions. You have a lot to do. For this you need to increase the investment attractiveness of the region – due to the budget problems with the roads in our great country to decide.”
Answering the question about the prospects of adoption of the law on raising the minimum wage to a living wage, Medvedev vowed: “WE will do and do it in stages. Even given the difficulties with budgets and the economic problems we are able to do it for 2 years. This will require about 50 billion rubles, but the money to get.”
