SOCHI, August 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The borders of the area to be incorporated into Moscow have been determined and presented to President Dmitry Medvedev.
“The governor of the Moscow region and I are working to implement your instruction,” Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said at a meeting with Medvedev on Monday, August 15.
“We have already determined the borders of the area in question more or less accurately,” he said, adding that a detailed action plan has been drafted, which includes public hearings and meetings with legislators.
According to Sobyanin, “This is a useful configuration of the borders for both Moscow and the Moscow region.”
“We had to specify the borders in such a way that would not divide municipalities,” the mayor said.
