According to analysts, “Kommersant”, the current head of the Ministry of transport Maxim Sokolov, most likely, the ordered way in the new government and the reasons for this lie in the whole set of claims from the authorities to the work of the Ministry.
In particular, dissatisfaction was expressed by Yuri Trutnev, the Deputy Prime Minister, who said that the systematic underfunding of the far Eastern airports is directly related to the poor performance of the Federal air transport Agency. On December 23 he reported to the head of the government that, in his opinion, there is a service mismatch, but the decision of course remains with the Prime Minister.
It is known that also the matter was considered by a special Commission – the results of her work were presented to Dmitry Medvedev and Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.
Briefly they are as follows: it is not “sawing” of money, but of negligence and inconsistency of legislative and procedural norms related documentation. Of course, the guilty must be punished – including the head of Federal air transport Agency Alexander Neradko and the Minister of transport Sokolov. It is clarified that resignations out of the question, because in light of the upcoming presidential elections it is impractical to do not forget about the preparation of the airports and airfields for the 2018 world Cup.
There is a sense to remind you that this is not the only identified Agency problem lately. So, in September 2017 occurred a major scandal associated with the bankruptcy of the airline “Vim-Avia”. Then the President of the Russian Federation announced on the service inconsistency of the head of the Ministry of transport, and his Deputy Valery Okulov was dismissed.
