The first presentation of the TV-program “Presidential Hour” has taken place today on the “BST” TV-channel. Ten journalists, presenting the Republican, federal and municipal mass-media, came to the studio to communicate with the President RB to the themes, vitally important for the region. Besides, all people could put questions to the President in live broadcast. Along with the central broadcasting two movable TV-stations worked in the Republic: one in Ufa on the Salavat Ulaev square and another one – in the village Staroakkulaevo, Alsheevsky region RB. The questions were received by phone too.

In spite of the shortage of time one can outline the general circle of questions the citizens worry about and first of all this is the problem with corruption. People were complaining about the facts of crying injustice, oppressions and the abuses of power. As the President of Bashkortostan promised, this phenomenon will be in every possible way extirpated on the territory of the Republic and at that using the severest methods, if necessary.

“It is high time to understand the population mustn’t work for the authority but the authority works for people” – Rustem Khamitov said – “So we will undertake the most serious measures against those officials, who fail to justify our confidence. I do think the Republic will soon get to know the names of its “heroes”.

The questions, asked from the Salavat Ulaev square, appeared quite urgent too. They concerned such problems as housing for youth, construction of sports grounds for children and teenagers and such hot theme as the problem of swindled interest-holders.

Answering the questions of the citizens RB the President of Bashkortostan promised to solve all these problems but underscored the budget of the Republic was rather restricted so in some cases the solution of these problems would demand a certain period of time.

The questions, asked in the studio, concerned the activity of Rustem Khamitov in the “Live Journal”, the rise of food prices, development of sport in Bashkortostan and the level of influence of the federal center upon the leader of the region. Rustem Khamitov commented all abovementioned themes in details and also expressed his point of view on the actively and publicly discussed question concerning possible rename of the presidential posts in some regions of the country.
