Vladimir Vasilyev updated the President on the implementation of instructions issued to the republic’s authorities during a presidential working visit to Daghestan in March this year. These instructions concerned, in part, anti-corruption activities, such as weeding out corrupt officials and calling them to account based on the prosecutor office’s materials for conflict of interests, imbalance between spending and income, and other violations. Vladimir Vasilyev said these efforts would restore order and enhance the efficiency of budgetary spending. The official also informed the President about personnel competitions that helped Daghestan create an employee pool. The republic attracts experts and professionals from around the country. Discussions also focused on road building to create a modern transportation link between the republic’s mountainous districts, the purchase of CT scanners and the construction of a waste recycling plant, about which people in the Botlikh and Tsumadinsky districts spoke at a meeting with Vladimir Putin in March this year. Mr Putin and Mr Vasilyev also talked about the transfer of the Caspian Flotilla from Astrakhan to the Daghestani city of Kaspiysk. Mr Vasilyev proposed building a ship repair facility in the city and opening a branch of the St Petersburg Nakhimov Naval School, where general school tuition is complemented with naval training.
