Meeting with Governor of Smolensk Region Alexei Ostrovsky

May 18, 2015, Sochi

Vladimir Putin had a working meeting with Smolensk Region Governor Alexei Ostrovsky to discuss the region’s socioeconomic situation.

Mr Ostrovsky said that 20 investment projects are currently underway in the region, including in the agriculture sector, which is the regional economy’s mainstay. The region’s industrial production figures are on the increase, work continues to expand the gas network, and road construction continues.

Mr Putin accepted Mr Ostrovsky’s request to step down from office ahead of term in order to take part in an early gubernatorial election in the region.
