Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov said the republic does not want to live at the expense of other Russian regions and that budget funds to be spent only on top priority tasks.
“Today, each municipal entity (in Crimea) faces concrete tasks on which the city and district administrations in Crimea are expected to focus their attention,” Aksyonov said at the press conference in Simferopol, according to Ria Novosti.
“In the short term, these are small investments. We are not planning any huge investments at the moment. We do not want to feed on other Russian regions and the Russian government,”- he added.
Under a Russian government-approved scheme, 14 Crimean districts and one city, including the federal city of Sevastopol, have been assigned to 16 donor regions and territories of Russia.
The donor regions have been selected with account taken of economic specialization and budget sufficiency.
