Acting Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Mikhail Degtyarev called the information that regional officials will allow business class travel, canceled under the former governor Sergei Furgal.

“I was surprised to learn that some media outlets are discussing a non-existent decision about flights of Khabarovsk officials in business class. I remind you that on August 5 I signed Resolution 333-pr. It says in black and white: economy class. See Clause 3.2.2. Do not believe fakes. Be careful”. – wrote Degtyarev in his Telegram channel.

Degtyarev did not comment on the fact that the “fake” draft decree allowing business class flights was published and is still available on the official portal of legal information of the Khabarovsk Territory. The regional government claims that the acting governor simply did not know about the existence of this document, which appeared as a result of “apparatus sabotage.”

The draft resolution was published on August 7 and contains the following phrase: “The costs of travel on the territory of the Russian Federation to the place of business and back to their permanent place of business are reimbursed to members of the government of the Khabarovsk Territory at the actual costs, confirmed by travel documents, but not higher than the cost of travel: by air – at the business class rate; by sea and river transport – at the rates set by the carrier, but not higher than the cost of travel in a luxury cabin with integrated passenger services; by rail – in a luxury carriage classified as a business class carriage. “

The decree, which Degtyarev referred to in the telegram, states, on the contrary, that the cost of travel to the place of business trip and back should not be higher than the cost of travel: on trains – in a luxury carriage classified as economy class carriages; by air – at the economy class tariff; by sea and river transport – in a four-berth cabin.

On the day of publication of the project, which Degtyarev later called fake, the acting governor complained on Instagram that Khabarovsk officials rarely visit Moscow, although they must travel to the capital regularly to defend the interests of the Khabarovsk Territory and raise funds to the budget “in the interests of the people.”

“In this regard, the issue of efficiency is not idle. I want to ask the residents how many billion rubles the minister should attract so that we compensate him for the flight in business class,” Degtyarev addressed the residents of the region, urging them to leave comments under the post.

In the press service of the interim “Komsomolskaya Pravda” later said that this poll “can be regarded as trolling of officials who miss their privileges. Bring billions from Moscow, then we will talk about business class …” Publication of a draft resolution allowing travel in business class, the press service of the regional governments called “amateur performances.”

“The publication of the draft decree on flights of officials in business class is an amateur activity and an apparatus sabotage. The interim governor was not aware of the draft decree. The perpetrators will be punished,” the press service quotes RIA Novosti.

The former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergey Furgal, in 2019 prohibited local officials, except for the first deputy prime ministers of the government, from flying in business class at the expense of the regional budget and generally banned unreasonable business trips.
