author: Eugene Rakhimkulov

The President RB Rustem Khamitov believes the staffing potential of Bashkortostan should be presented at the federal level too.

“We have the specialists, quite worthy to present the federal authority here in Ufa” – he said, talking with the journalists overnight.

The President of Bashkortostan intends to discuss this question with the first deputy head of the Russian President’s Administration Vladislaw Surkov during his nearest visit to Ufa.

The President of Bashkortostan also mentioned that in the course of formation of the new Government RB no influence was exerted upon him either from the federal center or from other regions. “It’s a pity to hear that and I feel ashamed for the people, spreading such information” – he said.
