Deputies of the City Duma of Khabarovsk demand to close the MKU "Representative Office of the City of Khabarovsk" in Moscow. According to them, more than eight million rubles are allocated annually for its maintenance from the budget.

Mayor of the regional capital Sergey Kravchuk spoke out against the closure. On my page in Instagram he said that such a department is necessary because it allows you to quickly prepare answers or eliminate the identified comments in case of questions or comments from federal departments and structures. For example, the representative office protects the interests of the city in PJSC RusHydro, which decided to build a CHPP-4 in the city.

“Needless to say, the lion's share of interactions takes place in Moscow?”, The mayor of Khabarovsk noted.

He also said that the representative office promotes applications for the participation of the city in various competitions, solves problems with paperwork, and performs operational tasks. According to Sergei Kravchuk, this allows you to save budget money on airline tickets, accommodation, travel expenses of officials.

City deputies disagree with this approach and believe that the representation spends more than it earns. It rents an office on Novy Arbat and has at its disposal an Audi A8.
