"Crimean" test for the federal government

As you know, at the end of last year, a scandal broke out associated with claims of certain individuals from the federal leadership to the regional Crimean authorities. Claims - this is still relatively mildly ... Officials from among the central elites announced that the authorities of the Crimean Federal District, they say, useless business executives, because they did not manage to master the funds allocated from the state budget in a timely manner. They say, in Moscow, you understand, they climb out of their skin to provide the Crimeans with all the necessary financial assistance, and the Crimean authorities inhibit all federal initiatives and hamper the development of the peninsula that has returned to Russia.

It came to regional resignations. Several ministers of the Government of the Republic of Crimea left their posts. The resignation of powers was also announced by the chairman of the legislative assembly of Sevastopol Alexey Chaly. No resignations in the federal government followed ... How would everyone in their places, and all cope with the work ...

At the beginning of 2016, some details come to light, related to what was the reason why the Crimean authorities were so “indifferent” that the billions allocated from the state budget could not be mastered.

As previously assumed, according to the modern Russian tradition, the main amount of budget funds allocated for the development of the economy of the Crimean Federal District began to come in for 1,5-2 a month before the end of the financial year. More than 10 billions of budget rubles floated to the Crimean accounts in the usual emergency mode, according to the formula “just to report what they spent.” Apparently the main thing that worried at the time of allocating funds officials - "suitable" reporting. Does this scheme have a corruption component? - a separate question and concerning, as it happened, not only the Republic of Crimea and the hero-city of Sevastopol. This is real regional karma - all year expect the promised center of finance, and then, when there is no way to effectively spend these funds - “manna from heaven” in the form of federal millions or billions (depending on expenditure items) still falls on the region ... Many regional authorities in the country, they adapted to this method and succeeded with the "correct" reporting.

But for the Crimean authorities, who had not yet had time to join the all-Russian realities, this approach was very unexpected. So unexpected that in the Republic of Crimea alone, 8 billion rubles were left undeveloped, which, according to a number of rules, may require returning to the federal jug because of the “inability to effectively spend” these funds.

In Crimea, they decided that it was necessary to use all the forces and means to try to keep the allocated funds for real, not paper, development of the region. Official broker Head of the Republic of Crimea on the eve announced that the head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov was addressed by the head of the Republican Ministry of Finance Irina Kiviko with a request to send an appeal to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak in order for the federal government to allow Crimea to spend the mentioned 8 billion rubles this coming year.

"Crimean" test for the federal government

In order to make the appeal not look unsupported by the argument, the republican authorities remind the government of the country that the Crimea has been living since November in an emergency situation caused by the diversion of the Ukrainian side - undermining the power lines in the Kherson region.

According to the head of the Crimean Ministry of Finance, Irina Kiviko, due to the emergency situation in force in Crimea since 22 in November, the regional authorities did not have time to close the acts of completed work and transfer funds under previously concluded contracts.

Irina Kiviko:
Therefore, I petition you to apply to the government of the Russian Federation so that the remnants of the municipalities and the over-fulfillment of the budget of the Republic of Crimea we can use in 2016 year. The municipalities - 3 billion rubles, and about 5 billion rubles - this means the budget of the republic. We have expenses, if we talk about the development of purely republican funds - 96 billion rubles. Federal funds were received in November-December, so it turned out that the percentage of federal funds disbursed was 83,3% of the amount received.

Sergey Aksenov:
A month and a half of emergency situations knocked us off track. I will contact the government of the Russian Federation. But all the ministries responsible for the use of budget funds must write official memos in which the procedure for disbursement of funds, terms and responsible persons must be written.

So, now the Crimean authorities have decided to arrange a sort of test for lice for the federal government. If there are officials sitting in the central cabinet, for whom it is more important not the statements on a piece of paper, but the destinies of millions of citizens, then, of course, they will not select the funds not spent for objective reasons, but will postpone their implementation to the current year. If, in the economic bloc of the government, the paper god and some doubtful desires are above the interests of the Crimeans, who are faced with serious problems in terms of energy supply, then they will withdraw the rhetoric about the “inefficient regional authorities” to be exploited with the sole purpose of reducing the amount of funds allocated this year to a minimum.

It remains to wait whether the “Crimean” test will pass the economic block of the federal government, or the Crimean authorities, having spat on honesty and transparency, “learn” the “traditional” spending of funds - first of all on paper ...

    Does this scheme have a corruption component? - The question is separate and concerning, it just so happened, by no means only the Republic of Crimea and the hero city of Sevastopol.

    THERE IS, and not only "corruption". To dig deeper and there are actions and inaction of officials, for which, in the good old days, "shook" long periods, up to the "tower". Our laws do not apply to everyone. What a pity!

          I think that the government should not ask questions of the Republic of Kazakhstan, but, on the contrary, the government and state-owned banks.
          For example, Sberbank still does not open a branch in Crimea, and, as Gref says, this is possible only after the return of Crimea.
          So the question is - are the top echelons of Russian power ready for strategic projects such as the annexation of Crimea? Does Russian bureaucracy put its selfish interests and corrupt traditions above civic duty and service to its own people?

      It always infuriated that the funds were received by the end of the year and the race began vertically, for the development of these funds, otherwise they would cut the budget for the next year, as a result, everything merged with big kickbacks and at sky-high prices. They would list on December 31st. Faced this personally and repeatedly.

        In order for the situation with disagreements in Crimea not to be used to escalate the hysteria that svidomye and belolentochny usually dream of, the Russian government, together with the local authorities, should have long ago published in the media detailed material about inconsistencies in opinions, the true causes of the conflict, the culprits in the conflict itself and in escalating the situation, as well as the draft of measures taken to eliminate the conflict situation. This is not a state defense order, the information is not secret, but it can be used in different ways. To a greater extent, not in favor of not only the authorities but also the people. Whatever they say there, the region will be special for a long time, recently it was ruled by another country (now no longer a country), according to completely different principles. It is naive to believe that everything will be like clockwork given the current situation in the country as a whole.

        Thanks to the Crimeans, no matter what, the homeland and Russia were not exchanged or sold. Officials come and go, sometimes to Kolyma, sometimes to London, but the Homeland remains.

        I agree, such crap in any office that receives money from the fed organs. They don't give you a penny for half a year - and work as you want without money for equipment, salaries, consumables. And at the end of the year, here they are money, but you have to spend it until December 31, otherwise the carriage goes into a pumpkin ... You start to figure out what you will need in the next half a year, how to get it quickly and so that it will be reported for this year "point" (we plowed on this money all year).
        And do not care that we have this year, say, some hydrophones were not used, thank God, we know that we will need them in the next.
        And if urgently what new garbage will be needed, in the first half of the year ...

      All right. The bottom line is that for emergencies there is not enough flexibility in using the budget, tight control over the validity of its use and the officials’ creative approach to optimizing expenses. This point applies to officials at all levels. Including Federals bringing limits from the beginning to the end of the year.

    It has already been imposed on our teeth that the economic bloc of the government, together with its immediate head Dimsik, must be driven away by a filthy broom, and their abilities to be used in those places where they can do the least harm are garbage collection and sweeping of the tundra.

    If the funds arrived in November-December and almost immediately required to spend and report, then this wildness is utter and complete mess.
    On the other hand, I read that by November of the 80 (800?) Million already allocated for the development of the Crimean energy sector, almost nothing had been mastered - and this is also a mess.

      .... And you read less crap .... Better come and talk to people on the spot .... I assure you that the picture drawn in the article, to put it mildly, is not entirely true ... As far as I know, what else in the spring, Crimea refused part of the allocated funds due to the impossibility of their development on time ... And all the noise raised around the 3 lards, which allegedly did not go to the accounts of Crimea, also raises doubts ... Judging by the publications, they were listed back in September , but for some reason they were not "seen" in Crimea .... Where is the end of the year here ???? ...

      Draining money at the end of the year is standard practice. The whole year the money is kept "no matter what happened to the fireman." They are drained by the end of the year. The problem is not so much in this, but in the fact that the unused money means that next year the budget will be cut by the amount that has not been used, or even more. And a wild dance begins with purchases of all sorts of shit for crazy money. A huge number of lured firms live at the expense of these drains, and they are also a mechanism for cashing out the budget. The scheme was worked out even with a humpback.

    There, too, not everything is smooth. The Crimeans built such a justification for their costs that it was returned to them for revision. As a result, many estimates were "blown away" up to four times! That is why the money came late. Since the justification was late due to approvals (and not at all wasted, as it turns out). In such situations, there is no completely right and completely guilty.

    They were not silent, at least Aksyonov. There is a video showdown for money for the Crimea, look. Moreover, in the Crimea, and especially here in Sevastopol, there is a mess, incompetence and just wrecking. BUT against the general background of Russian reality, we are no different in this regard. Unless completely killed by infrastructure during ukrovladyvosti. We don’t intend to accept the insanity that is happening now in the hero-city of Sevastopol, just by getting rid of the occupying colonialists! Is it time for the President to pay attention to his surroundings, or will we continue to struggle with the difficulties that these mediocrities and undermineers will organize for us? It can be "according to relics and fir trees," because the people are silent, but they can say their weighty word.

    The situation is basically regular. This happened in Soviet times under the planned system. In my opinion, one of the main reasons is that the budget is not being executed at the same time and money appears in it upon receipt. For this reason, the coincidence of the beginning and end of the fiscal and business year poses a similar problem. This is especially evident in the example of construction: the commissioning period, for example, of a plant on January 1, is allocated for construction and equipment at the beginning of the year, but the production cycles are different and the periods are corresponding. As a result, the equipment begins to arrive closer to the end of the year, when there is no timing matching. As a result: either the money is not spent (then there is a threat of reduced funding), or postscripts with deficiencies that are eliminated at the beginning of next year. Obviously, the fiscal year begins in the US not from the first of January.

    Most likely both sides will mow. The federal government - here it is not even necessary to explain, everyone already sees the results of the "work", the allocation of money at the end when, and before that they are in the accounts of the Ministry of Finance (accounts in the Central Bank) and other departments and departments (and here where are the accounts opened? , in the "correct" banks, which gives account balances, deposits, etc.), and then urgently sent to a place where they do not have time to master. As a result, the bureaucrats earned money, chased the money through the necessary banks, unsubscribed that we gave money, but they do not know how to use it.
    What were the justifications and requests of the Crimean government - we do not reliably know, but for sure they are also not silver-free people sitting there, albeit not yet accustomed to our size of state corruption.

And from this I concluded that it was simply that this government had nothing to do with our Russian people. This is not a government at all, it is OKLO (Society without any responsibility). The fact that the GDP is satisfied is understandable, his salary comes on time and the light of the house is on. CLOSE by itself is all the more pretty, the dough inflicts immeasurably, drives around on steep wheelbarrows, lackeys open doors, security guards take care of the carcass.
