People's analytics: what do the residents of the Far East think?

From the night of December 10, the "theme of the day" in the Far East is the possible change of the capital. The President of Russia supported the initiative to move the administrative center of the Far Eastern Federal District to Vladivostok, although the corresponding decree has not yet been signed, which gives this news a certain subjunctive and populist flavor. "The idea of ​​transferring the capital of the Far Eastern Federal District to Vladivostok has many factors in favor, but there are other points of view, a position should be formed on the ground," said the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov. #EastRussia has collected for you opinions and memes from pages of social networks, from kitchens and publics of two "warring" cities. We give specifically without geotitles: guess where the speakers are from, by yourself. The spelling and punctuation of the original posts have been preserved.

Mikhail Kurbanov: The “capital” of the Far East just started to move, and in Khabarovsk it has already become warmer!

Olga Barkova"Today we have learned good news for Vladivostok! It has become the capital of the Far East! Congratulations to all residents! These are new opportunities for development and improvement of living standards! Let's improve the quality of goods and services to match our beautiful capital - Vladivostok! "

Sergey Mamaev"Twist of fate or with light steam-xnumx. He fell asleep in the capital, and woke up in an ordinary provincial town. I didn't seem to drink. "

Svetlana Kosova: "Let's not become the capital, maybe our prices will stop suffering from rabies?" 

Vitaly Yazvenko: "Vlad is good, we launched a technopark here, selected residents, the launch of our business accelerator and close work with projects soon. In general, it was always unclear to me what gives the status of the capital? Is there more money for the city? "

Masha Netrebenko: “Primorsk citizens happily write that they woke up in the“ capital ”. Khabarovsk residents pouted and contemptuously wish the Primorye residents to choke. And I sit in a cluttered, burnt-out den, neutral as Switzerland, and watch all this with pleasure, like a resident of two capitals in the past.

In this situation with the division of the status of the capital - the quintessence of everything that is happening in our country, the grain of the Russian world order. In the current social, political and economic situation in the Far East, reassigning the status of the capital (just like naming airports) and taking it seriously is like hanging Kuindzhi's originals in an apartment-brothel of drunks after a fire in the hope that after that something will change. 

Well, imagine you come to your home, and there, the smoked ceiling and the walls were slapped, under the layer of dust and sod you can not see the floorboards, the smoke was turned off, you turned off the light and water for non-payment, you are dead in the closet, here is "Dnepr Morning" on the wall I will hang and live! "

Alexander IRoshenko: "Having woken up, I made the usual honorable circle on news feeds, I realized that in the Far East there is now a new capital. Which name is Vladivostok. In my life this will not change anything. I suppose that in the life of most of you is also ... Administrative capital in my Fatherland - the contour is very conditional. There is one capital - Moscow. All the others go to the century. " 

Friend Verkeenko: "We fell asleep in the village and woke up in the capital !!! Hurray."

Guest bone in the throat: "So do not push the city in traffic from traffic jams, so a few hundred idlers will come! And everyone has a car. And everyone has relatives. Also with cars. Mistresses again. With cars. Give everyone an apartment, give parking, flashing lights Provide ... We don’t need someone else's shit - ours has a hundred years to spare. "

Lena Vertyankina: "Khabarovsk is the capital OFF. Aloha, provincials! If it happened, the classic said, to be born in the empire ... - then you know. The province is almost ours, the sea remains to be moved. It will be fair. It seems like for such an ordinary rogue, like me, nothing has changed, but since yesterday I feel strangely destitute and at the same time peaceful. "

Andrey Kalachinsky: “Putin agreed to move the capital to Vladivostok. This is what I read in the news. And he froze in disbelief. Here it has begun! The Emperor, like Peter the Great, is great! From Moscow to Vladivostok? Then everything takes shape: the Mariinsky Stage (the sovereign loves ballet and Gergiev), a new exhibition museum and concert complex (the sovereign loves to wander through the vaults of the Russian Museum), negotiations with Abe, and a change in course from cunning China to even more cunning Japan ... I saw Putin's mausoleum in Vladivostok, when the eye caught the lost word - the Far Eastern Federal District. How? Are we just the capital of the Far Eastern Federal District? Not the whole country?

Now we are the capital of the entire Transbaikalia, the Amur region with the Ussuri region, Kamchatka, Chukotka, Magadan, Yakutsk and the Islands of the Small and Big Kuril ridge! And this despite the fact that Vladivostok whined, but did not receive the status of the capital of Primorye from the regional deputies. And now we have a plenipotentiary with his retinue, Almond with clerks, and even "ten thousand couriers"! Where to put them?

In any case, they need to be placed compactly and somewhere so that they do not interfere with us and we do not interfere under their feet. Why are many countries building capitals in an open field like Astana and Washington? Because in historical cities the government is forced to travel to each other for many kilometers from end to end. I was amazed by Washington: the square, and around the ministry and museums, and at the head is the Capitol building. The Presidential White House is a little off to the side, but close. The ministers go to each other on foot along the alleys. And so we don't need our eternal whining: "Why do we need this? What's the use? It will be worse again." We are free people, brought up by typhoons, you cannot crush us with bureaucracy! "

Nicodemus Zavidonov: "Khabarovsk, of course, looks more impressive than Vladik. Wider, smoother, the sewage system does not flow along all the streets. There are a lot of railways, a lot of air connections. Of course, the frosts are not frail, but the winds here are terrible.
And in Vladik - one sewer pipe for 100 for the whole city and one railway deep into the shit - that's all! You cannot swim in the sea - you will get poisoned from sewage.

Dmitry Panov: "The transfer, even formal, of the capital of the region is impossible without the transfer of the headquarters of the army, the National Guard, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other security officials. And this will never happen - not even tens of billions have been invested in their renewal and improvement. No, I, of course, understand, it is not a hook for a mad dog a thousand miles, but why admit it so clearly ?! "

Dmitry Zemskov: "All-Russian life hack: If you want some positive changes in your city / region / region / subject of the federation, vote AGAINST United Russia in the next elections! And then you and fish are cheaper, glonass and children ice cream and baba flowers ... and the capital will be transferred to you, in short, any whim! "

Susana Kim: "Do they really not understand how expensive it will cost the budget? I consider it a crime in such a difficult period to move the capital, name airports, etc. They have their own showdown, and the people are reaping the benefits."

Daniil Shimko: "After approval of the transfer of the capital of the FEFD from Khabarovsk to Vladivostok, France was forced to impose a state of emergency" 


Alena Aleshina"For the residents of Khabarovsk, the definition of "the capital of the Far East" was even offensive somewhere. Because the capital in this beautiful city is not given out by any barracks on 60th Anniversary of October Avenue, or apartments without toilets on Muravyov-Amursky, or fine public toilets on Cossack Mountain ... And what a wind rose there! Journalists tell people about the capital of the Far East, because the word "Khabarovsk" in one sentence often cannot be pronounced) But, as the beautiful ex-head of Topolevo village in the Khabarovsk region said: "There is always a bolt for every cunning ass." And now the "capital of the Far East" is moving to Vladivostok. I can see straight away: they removed the sapphire stars, collected the paving stones, scraped and washed something else, and took this to a port city on the Pacific coast. "

And, finally, an opinion on the transfer of the capital from our colleagues:

“Before the Duma of Vladivostok, the deputies of Vladivostok offered to be the capital of the Far East, officially recognize Vladivostok as the capital of Primorye.т - PThe status of Vladivostok as the administrative center of the Primorsky Territory is not legally fixed by law. "

“Nothing will change in the life of two cities from moving a certain number of officials from Khabarovsk to Vladivostok, and transferring the military district headquarters and other large structures to Primorye is hardly possible,” notes TV channel "Gubarniya ".

"And in the election of 2023, the candidate from United Russia will return the capital? Well, the transfer did not kill anyone, everyone is alive and continues to work," summarizes Inform portal
