Kadyrov confronts Russia's Finance Ministry on Chechen budget
Ramzan Kadyrov has criticized the proposal of the Russia's Ministry of Finance (MoF) to cut the 2017 budget of the Chechen Republic. According to his version, the proposal is causing "a lot of questions" and does not satisfy the republic's leadership.
Kadyrov launched his distant polemic with the MoF at a budget sitting in Grozny.
"The budget model offered to us by the federal centre is not acceptable for the ChechenRepublic. We're just getting on our feet; the republic has plenty of problems. Chechnya is among the only two regions, where pupils go to schools in three shifts. We have restored the facilities, but now the most complicated period begins: to buy equipment and train professionals. We need to advance in main areas of economy," Kadyrov said, in particular, as quoted by the RIA "Novosti".
