Vice Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev said in Khabarovsk that the work of the authorities in the Khabarovsk Territory is poorly organized. The region was in 18th place in terms of investment climate, and now in 63rd place. Investors complain to officials at the embassy.

The plenipotentiary also said that billions of rubles were allocated to the region for the construction of social facilities - nothing was built. Trutnev said that if the court finds Furgal guilty and if the president resigns, Khabarovsk Territory will face new elections.

“The Khabarovsk Territory has already demonstrated that it can determine its will, whom it wants to see as the governor. I think this will happen. In any case, we will respect the choice, ”said Yuri Trutnev.

According to him, Furgal has not been charged before, since no checks are made at the election stage. After taking office, the governor comes under scrutiny. That is why the case of 15 years ago surfaced.

The plenipotentiary said that it was not in his authority to decide whether to change the regional government now, or to conduct some kind of personnel rotation. He said that he came to check how officials are working now. He noted that if there is a change in the head of the region, the team will also change.

At this time, in Khabarovsk, a rally of citizens again takes place. Today there were much fewer than on the weekend. The route also changed, but the slogans remained the same: people demanded that Furgal be given freedom.

Khabarovsk Territory was left without a governor after the arrest of Sergei Furgal July 9. Him suspected of attempted murder and murder a number of entrepreneurs in 2004-2005. Basmanny court chose a preventive measure - two months arrest. LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said they wanted to remove Furgal from his post one month before the arrest.

After the detention of the head of the region in the Khabarovsk Territory began simple. The first mass meeting in support of Furgal was held in Khabarovsk on July 11. Then the townspeople took to the main streets July 12 and held a rally, after which they returned to the regional government building in the evening. Actions in support of the governor were held in other settlements of the region. Several participants in the next spontaneous rally police detained.
