Meeting with Head of Kabardino-Balkaria Yury Kokov

October 20, 2017, Sochi

Vladimir Putin met with Head of Kabardino-Balkarian Republic Yury Kokov to discuss the socioeconomic situation and other regional matters, including an emergency relief programme for Kabardino-Balkaria.

Yury Kokov reported on the steady economic growth in the republic over the past three years and the implementation of the May 2012 Presidential Executive Orders, including the provision of kindergarten capacity for children between 3 and 7.

The crime rate is decreasing in Kabardino-Balkaria. The republic is working with federal security and law enforcement services within the National Anti-Terrorism Committee to fight terrorism and extremism.

The Head of Kabardino-Balkaria also updated the President on the implementation of his orders to develop measures to protect the people against emergencies, such as the mudslides that hit the republic in August and September 2017. The republic’s authorities are working with ministries and agencies on this. They have received substantial assistance from the High-Mountain Geophysical Institute of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Roshydromet). Relevant proposals have been drafted and coordinated with the Government and all the concerned agencies. Yury Kokov also asked the President to support the proposal to add a subprogramme on emergency relief for Kabardino-Balkaria to the state emergency relief Programme.
