Now the most important thing is the establishment of a peaceful life and the involvement of children in creative work, – Titsky’s words are quoted in the message.
In the Zaporozhye region, Anton Titsky will create infrastructure and new social elevators for young people.
Vladimir Jaralla, Crimean politician:
– Appointments of Russian managers to the Zaporozhye region are very appropriate. Now these specialists are needed to establish daily life. In the liberated territories, there is still little understanding of what needs to be done and how. Therefore, difficulties often arise, because you have to work according to Russian legislation, which is still unfamiliar.
BY THE WAY
In the Zaporizhzhia region formed bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs
Specialists from Russia headed the structures of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Zaporozhye region, said a member of the administration of the Zaporozhye region Vladimir Rogov.
“Quite right,” Rogov answered the question of whether a new leadership of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was really appointed in the territory of the region that got out of control of Kyiv. “Russian specialists were sent for both the police and the traffic police.” He noted that the streets of Melitopol were calm before, and the presence of employees from Russia gives the townspeople additional confidence.
The Kyiv authorities are trying to interfere with the establishment of a peaceful life in the region – in recent months, attempts have been made on officials, there have been explosions near the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Zaporozhye region (as a result, three adults and a teenager were injured), at a power plant in Berdyansk and other incidents.
