Moscow Region Officials to Get Social Network

Moscow region Governor Andrei Vorobyov unveiled plans to create a social network for regional officials to enable them to be more open and accessible to residents.

“Ordinary people and leaders must unite efforts for a more effective and qualitative development of the Moscow region,” the governor said in a statement posted on the Moscow regional government’s website Wednesday.

He said the virtual platform would incorporate all municipalities and allow people to raise pressing questions and make suggestions to improve life in the region.

“It’s difficult for one person to monitor an entire region, so there should be some support from the residents. For that purpose, we will explore the issue of how to create our own kind of open platform for a more rapid exchange of information,” Vorobyov said.

A technical team is currently working on the website’s development. The open platform is expected to be launched in the near future, Interfax reported.
