Vladimir Putin has come out for the possibility to move several state federal structures from Moscow to other big cities, for instance, to St. Petersburg and Nizhny Novgorod. But, of course, the capital will not be moved from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin said. Answering a live question, the President stressed that some foreign countries such as Germany and France have an experience of stationing some state structures in big cities. According to Putin, it helps to increase business and real estate market activity and, consequently, to increase the city budget. St. Petersburg's income are not sufficient to maintain its historical and architectural monuments, the President stressed. "The palaces, museums and parks" of St. Petersburg belong to all Russians and "the Federation should maintain them," Putin said.
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
