The message reads, in part:
“I am pleased to note that over the past years the Moscow parliament has done substantial work to enact extensive legislation that provides for the development of Moscow as a modern and people-friendly city. The legal framework is in place for reforms in the economy, healthcare, culture and various spheres of city management.
And, of course, the interests, problems and hopes of Muscovites are always the focus of deputies’ attention. I mean such socially important programmes as support for veterans, families with children and youth.
Today the Moscow Duma faces new but important challenges, first of all, protecting the environment and implementing the large and timely housing relocation project while preserving the historical appearance of Moscow.
I am confident that the competence, responsible approach and close cooperation with executive bodies, political parties and public organisations will continue to help you do as much as possible for the prosperity of Moscow and the entire country.”
