Putin instructs ICR and Prosecutor General to monitor cost of Central Ring Road
The security agencies will check state contracts for serving state interests.
Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Prosecutor General’s Office, the ICR and the Audit Chamber to monitor state interests compliance in government contracts concluded on the construction of the Central Ring Road (CKAD), as well as to check cost fairness of services and goods to be provided. In addition, an operational headquarters should be established to monitor the progress of construction and eliminate delays from the established deadlines, a message published on the Kremlin website reads.
In April, the Russian Audit Chamber reported that the cost of the Central Ring Road increased from 13.5 billion ($ 205 million) to 313.27 billion ($ 4,764 billion) rubles, and the deadlines for the construction of the third and fourth sections were extended. Of the 62.6 billion rubles ($ 952 million) allocated from the National Welfare Fund, only 38.4 billion ($ 583 million) rubles actually were invested in construction of the Central Ring Road.
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why the Germans and Austrians don’t feel themselves comfortable in their countries anymore.
