"All conversations of Cabinet of Ministers on need of transfer from municipal property in the state are empty, in my opinion", - A.Gritsenko told.
He noted that the state itself initiated transfer of the airports to municipal property during this period when the government had no means for their contents. At the same time, under the authority of local councils these enterprises showed effective work. I gave the Simferopol airport which, according to its data, was called by the most dynamically developing airport of CIS countries as A.Gritsenko's example.
