    MOSCOW, January 29, 2004, (RIA Novosti) - The federal government departments cannot take over the functions of the regional authorities, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

    In delimiting the powers between different levels of authority, the problem of excessive activity of the centre should not arise, that is, of different central bodies of power, ministries, government departments and the apparatus of the President's plenipotentiary representatives if they start to usurp the functions which must by right belong to regional authorities," the Russian President stressed at the meeting with his Special Envoy to the Volga Federal District Sergei Kiriyenko.
