Russian President Vladimir Putin:

Mr. Reshetnikov, how much time has passed since you began?

Acting Governor of the Perm Territory Maxim Reshetnikov:

Mr. Putin, it has been seven months, fairly intense ones at that. These months have been busy. During this time, I visited all the 48 districts of the Region. I held meetings with local residents in each district in Perm and worked out a development program. Moreover, the development program was drawn up based on the questions posed by the residents.

Actually, citizens of the region do not expect anything from the authorities other than what they can and should provide. Therefore, they raised issues concerning health, education, roads, gasification, communications, the internet, promoting sports and jobs, of course. This is exactly what we can and should provide. We developed a program based on these requests, presented it to the people and discussed it with them.

In each district, I tried to visit a central district hospital, a school, agricultural and industrial enterprises. I spoke to war veterans a lot, because, firstly, they have a lot of energy, and secondly, they have a very clear, sensitive take on things, and are very professional too. It really is a great support. And, of course, I talked a lot with young people.

As a result, a program was developed, and there is an understanding of what to do. The program has enough funding for the long term; we analyzed everything so as not to make empty promises. And now there is an understanding of what to do, a team is being formed, and I am sure that we are able to provide what people expect from us, from the region, from the authorities.

Vladimir Putin:

Mr. Reshetnikov, you are local, you know about everything first-hand, both the strengths and weaknesses. There are still a great many issues to be worked out and solved. You and I have just spoken about it.

You are a young man but fairly experienced. You also used to work in the Russian Government. Which department did you work in?

Maxim Reshetnikov:

I worked in the Department of State Administration, Regional Development and Local Self-government. It dealt with reforms and inter-budgetary relations.

Vladimir Putin:

And that was when I was Prime Minister.

Then you were a Minister in the Moscow Government, which is also considerable experience. It is a megacity of 12 million people. Yet Perm is a special place, a major economic cluster with industry: chemical, petrochemical, you name it, metallurgy. We are now witnessing an IT boom, such interesting professional people; we see how fast it is progressing. There are a lot of things to deal with here, and I would like to wish you success.

Maxim Reshetnikov:

Thank you very much, Mr. President.

Thank you for your support and your visit. It matters a lot for the residents here.

Acting Governor of Perm Territory Maxim Reshetnikov told Vladimir Putin about plans for a large-scale modernization of urban space.

So far, only two kilometers out of 70 of the city’s Kama River embankment have been modernized. The rest is occupied by industrial plants and a railway. The city government has proposed dismantling the railway line to create a new urban space and improve the embankment in preparation for the 300th anniversary of Perm to be marked in 2023. Cargo transit will be redirected to a parallel rail line on the other side of the river. A tram will be launched in the vacated area.


The authorities also plan to place a local history museum and the Perm Art Gallery on the updated embankment. The historical buildings of the river station and the Perm-1 railway station will house the Russia Is My History exhibition. A building housing the second stage of the Opera and Ballet Theatre may also be built there.

The modernization plan also calls for installing a flight of steps leading down to the riverbank in another location, the esplanade, where key cultural events take place. At the third site, where the Perm-2 station and the university are located, they plan to alter the grid of city blocks. The authorities propose to use the vacated area for youth educational, sports and leisure infrastructure facilities. This can also be the location of a convention hall and a multi-purpose sports arena.

Vladimir Putin held a meeting in Kremlin with Maxim Reshetnikov.


Vladimir Putin:

Mr. Reshetnikov, you are a Perm native, studied there, and began your career there.

Maxim Reshetnikov:

Yes. I studied there, married there, had my children there.

Vladimir Putin:

Actually, your wife had your children.

In any case, you have always kept alive your connection to your hometown, and continue to do so now. You rose up in the civil service there to the position of the Governor’s Chief of Staff.

Maxim Reshetnikov:

Yes, that was the case. I was responsible for economic matters, and then I was Chief of Staff.

Vladimir Putin:

We worked together in the Government when I was Prime Minister. You were a department head at that time.

Maxim Reshetnikov:

Yes, Mr. President, I attended the meetings you held, and that was a real learning opportunity for me.


Vladimir Putin:

What if I were to propose that you return to your hometown as acting governor?

Maxim Reshetnikov:

This would be a great honour for me and a sign of trust. It would in fact be a double responsibility for me because this is my native place, and it matters much to me, matters much to all of us. The region has great potential, but there is much work to do to put this potential to greater use for the local people’s benefit. There is plenty of room for progress.

Vladimir Putin:

What do you see as the priority tasks for Perm Territory’s development?

Maxim Reshetnikov:

I think there are two main tasks.

The first, of course, is social protection and developing the social sector, because undoubtedly we still have progress to make in the healthcare system, and in the education sector, taking into account the objectives that you set.

The other main task is economic development. Perm Territory is part of the country’s industrial backbone and it is very important that industry continues to grow and develop there, making use of new technologies and new opportunities. At the same time, the traditional business sectors linked to natural resources all need to work and develop effectively.

Vladimir Putin:

You are quite familiar with the situation in Perm and, I hope, will do your best to live up to the people’s expectations and build on the previous team’s results.

Maxim Reshetnikov:

Yes, Mr. President. I appreciate your trust in me.
