Flew, but promised to return

Oleg Kozhemyako came to the Amur Region to give the latest instructions to his former team

Flew, but promised to return

To place arrested in receiving on suspicion of astronomical bribe ex-governor of Sakhalin Alexander Khoroshavin Governor of the Amur Region Oleg Kozhemyako appointed swiftly. So much so that, having stepped on the post of the head of the Sakhalin region, Kozhemyako was forced to return to the Amur region - once again gather his team for a meeting and distribute the latest valuable instructions.

"I tried to work honestly, giving myself to the region, and you saw it. For six and a half years there was not a single criminal case in the government of the Amur Region: nobody was accused of corruption, no one was arrested. And this was not due to lack of money - we have implemented multi-billion programs here. This allows us to conclude that the correct foundation was laid in the Amur Region, "the ex-governor confessed in his speech.

At the meeting, they talked a lot about “maintaining the pace”, continuing the “stabilization work in the economy and the social sphere”, “the implementation of federal programs” and the like. As an example to the Amur residents, the current ex-Amur residents Kozhemyako put them themselves. “If we compare the budgets of Blagoveshchensk and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (about 3 billion rubles against 20), it turns out that it’s not the amount of the sums. This does not prevent the Amur capital to look beautiful and well-groomed. The same with culture: 200 million and 2 billion. But there are fewer cultural events, after all. Clubs, libraries work - we learned to take not by number, but by skill. We learned to appreciate every penny, learned to use it effectively, - said the former governor of Amur. “I have never met such a collected and real team of experienced managers like you who have been devoted to the earth.”

Noted Kozhemyako and teamwork with the heads of municipalities, including the elimination of the consequences of the flood of 2013, the construction in a short time of housing for underflooders, the restoration of settlements after the fires.

“Over these years of working together, we have made a qualitative leap. Amur region sounds in Russia. We did not allow social unrest. So it is necessary to continue, ”the former regional governor urged the heads.

"But I do not understand it, to be honest," the head of the opposition faction of the LDPR in the Amur Legislative Assembly Sergei Abramov shares his hurt. - When he was elected and took the oath, he promised to work all the time for the benefit of the region, i.e. Until 2017-th year. Now this promise is broken. Really there were no other options? Did you leave us at the first opportunity? "

But it turned out he did not quit. Assumptions that Kozhemyako will have an impact on the Amur region, being the head of Sakhalin, the ex-governor himself indirectly confirmed during a press conference. "I will supervise, and help, and somewhere to transfer experience, and in some joint projects we will participate. I also have responsibility for the situation in the region. Therefore, I leave the same phone number and all communications with Amur residents, "said the new Sakhalin chapter. - For me, this proposal of the president was a complete surprise; here is part of my soul, the graves of my grandfathers, my parents were born here, my house - all this I very much appreciate. In addition, because I planned to work here until 2017 year and then go to the polls again. We have finally formed a government. But the needs of the state require something else. "

At the same time, the new Sakhalin governor assured that he would not take the Amur team with him to the island. "I'm not going to do it massively, because people need people here to bring to life the projects started here. All members of the Amur government were going to work until 2017 year. Except for whoever will or who will be released due to laziness or other reasons, added Oleg Kozhemyako. - I plan to involve some as advisers from time to time, at a private level, but no more. For example, on Sakhalin is actively building, and the court was dismissed by the Minister of Construction, and I need the advice of an experienced and honest person. "

Far East in essence

As Kozhemyako noted, he knows Sakhalin from 1998, when he went there first to a businessman, and then to an official. Therefore, many of the management staff knows personally and intends to "not change the system."

“I understand the inhabitants of the island, their fears, but at the same time I am not the worst option. I think if someone came from the outside, it would have been worse, ”Kozhemyako commented on his appointment. - I don’t plan to change the team on Sakhalin at all, since who doesn’t know their own region, its problems and peculiarities. But if for someone, as for the minister of construction, affairs are brought or he does not correspond to the position, you will have to leave. In general, I am determined to work exactly, and it is for the benefit of Sakhalin. For example, one of the primary tasks is to pass on the order of 20-kindergartens ”.

Odeg Kozhemyako named the beginning of the construction of the cosmodrome Vostochny, Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP, the second stage of the Blagoveshchenskaya CHPP, the reconstruction of the Blagoveshchensk airport, the program of resettlement from dilapidated housing of the residents of the BAM zone, as well as 8 thousand new places in kindergartens, pools, housing for orphans and veterans. "This is agriculture. Those foundations that we laid down for meat cattle breeding, while maintaining the pace will not leave any chance for other regions to catch up with us, "he said.

Finally Kozhemyako outlined the main tasks that need to be addressed by the Amur Cabinet, along with the new governor.

Thus, documents were signed on financing the preparation of the reservoir bed of the Nizhne-Bureiskaya HPP, as well as on the cable car to China; Work continues on the allocation of land for gas processing and gas chemical complexes. It is also necessary to implement the agreement on the hippodrome and finish the second turn of BAM. In general, Kozhemyako expressed hope that the Amur region will successfully pass difficult 2015-2016 years. "Already from the year 2017, the Amur region will receive more taxes from the new HPPs, from the" Siberia Power ", from the gas processing and gas chemical plants being built here, the Vostochny cosmodrome. I think 2017-2020 years will be the heyday of the Amur region. The Amur residents deserved it. Priamure is a region in which the state will invest unprecedented in its volumes of funds. It will be the most dynamic and industrially developed territory of the Far Eastern Federal District, "he said.

It was not at a meeting with journalists and without personal questions. So, Kozhemyako said that he did not have time to transport his things completely, and it will not be possible to do this until soon after a few months - there is too much work on the island. "The same goes for dogs (Kozhemyako - husky, - approx. the author), and my summer cottage with a farm in the village of Chernyayevo, - he noted, - but there will be a reason to visit here more often. Now it is here that direct flights are organized. By the way, I think that we have something to please each other: Amur residents will be conquered by first-class ski slopes, Sakhalin nature and seafood, and Sakhalin residents will be able to go to China. ”

At the end of the curtain, the question arose as to why the head of the region, albeit temporarily, appointed man from the city administration, And not from the regional government (which according to the logic of things and the hierarchy is more appropriate). "In general, this is correct when the mayor of the city becomes a governor: he knows the problems, in part voted for by the city's residents. Such a governor will never leave the city (As an administrative unit. Author) without attention. This is the most correct scheme, ”answered Kozhemyako.

And as an admonition to the Amur residents, the ex-governor asked his voters to support the current head of the region, Alexander Kozlov, in the upcoming elections.

“He is local, from the Amur hinterland, he achieved everything himself, without the help of even his parents — that’s what appeals to me,” explained Oleg Kozhemyako. - Many have put (and are) reproaching his age for me, but he has been coping up to this point. So I consider the president’s actions justified - from his (Kozlov - author's note) youth can still do a lot of useful things. Look: in 2025, he will be only 46 years old! We discussed with him in advance: those projects that we started to implement, he will continue. He himself was a member of the government, participated in all meetings, knows and understands the economy, the agro-industrial complex, the social sphere. So I think that this is the person around whom you need to unite and help him. The foundations are laid the right, important - to continue what was started. "

Alexander Kozlov became the youngest head of the region in the country (34 of the year). He began his career as a manager about 10 years ago at Amur Coal, which he later headed. Then there was the post of first deputy minister of construction, architecture and housing and communal services in the regional government, which Kozlov headed in less than a year. At the beginning of 2014, he was appointed acting head of the administration of Blagoveshchensk and in this position he managed the municipality until September 14 of last year. On a single day of voting, the townspeople elected Alexander Kozlov as mayor of the Amur capital, whom he worked up to the presidential decree.

"The President and the government pay great attention to the development of the Far East, including the Amur Region. We must participate in all programs, keep up. It is necessary to remove administrative barriers, create jobs, - said Alexander Kozlov, within the framework of his first press approach in a new capacity, the governor of the Amur region. -The main thing is not to forget that the subject is agrarian, and today there is a lot of work to increase the capacities and organize the processing. And, of course, we need to make maximum use of our capabilities as a border region. "
