a matter of control of politics and money flow it's a matter of. federal importance moscow is a special seat here and it is supposed to be the in the vanguard of modernization and actually the federal government has a lot from vicious plans of how to create a financial center in moscow i think said banneker enormous experience call for work in the gallant he is known as an efficient professional he has managed to create a fact of system within big government stuff he was quite successful as a governor of one of the richest regions in russia so he has enough experience to do so and besides i think it's also a matter of personal trust because he's well known by the president and by the prime minister and they trust him as a person and as a professional that was dimitri from the united russia party. well two thousand and fourteen will mark a double sporting debut for the russian resort city of sochi it's already you set to host the winter olympics but now the formula one boss signed
