Russia’s Federal centers of power should give hand of their functions to regional and local authorities, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said Sunday.

MOSCOW, October 20 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Federal centers of power should give hand of their functions to regional and local authorities, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said Sunday.

“The time has really come for additional authority to be transferred,” Shuvalov, a key ally of President Vladimir Putin, told participants at an economic forum in Moscow.

“Probably, we can say that subjects should get more power,” he added. “Not just [federal] subjects. We need to study how to give, probably, some kind-of additional financial resources, and at a minimal level, so that municipal regions respond to what authority is placed by law with them, where real local power should be formed, where people should build their lives by themselves,” he said.

 “So far, of course, they haven’t gone the money and the authorities themselves aren’t organized enough for these functions to work,” he added.
