Ministry of Regional Development abolished

Vladimir Putin signed a decree "On the abolition of the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation", according to the materials of the Kremlin.

Part of the authority of the department will be transferred to the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services.

Earlier, Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev made a proposal on the liquidation of the department. He explained that recently there have been established separate ministries for the affairs of the Crimea, the development of the Far East and the North Caucasus. According to the Prime Minister, further work of the Ministry of Regional Development is inadvisable due to the fact that "a significant part of the competence of the Ministry of Regional Development has been deployed between the new ministries."

The Ministry of Regional Development has existed since 2004. Since October, 2012 is headed by Igor Slyunyaev.

Under the decree, the Government was instructed to ensure that, within the time limits established by the legislation of the Russian Federation, liquidation procedures are implemented in connection with the abolition of the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation, to resolve financial, logistical and other issues related to the implementation of this Decree, and in the 3- compliance with this Edict and submit proposals on bringing in accordance with it the acts of the President of the Russian Federation.
