Direct speech

Vasily Duma, the councillor of federation, the chairman of Association of Ukrainians of Russia:
- Michael Fradkov`s Meetings with Victor Yushchenko in Kiev on which they will discuss pressing questions before a meeting of presidents of our countries and a gas problem. Some experts consider that Moscow is ready to sell gas on $130 in exchange for that Kiev as soon as possible will hold a referendum on the NATO, will leave alone till 2017 the Black Sea fleet and undertakes to co-operate with the company Rosukrenergo not less than five years. But, in my opinion, it is a political intrigue - neither Russian, nor the Ukrainian power on it will not go. And to avoid the auction between our countries in the future, the price for gas should be for all identical.

Yury Trutnev, the minister of natural resources of Russia:

- the Joint trip to Sakhalin boards of Ministry for Protection of the Environment and Natural Resources and bodies of the State Office of Public Prosecutor. We will bring preliminary results of investigation which will come to the end in the end of a month. I treat to Sakhalin that the eyes to see existing problems. Pleases that head Sakhalin Energy has already sent in MPR the letter in which the company recognises infringement of the ecological legislation of Russia, and for our arrival prepares the plan of correction of the errors.

Vasily Lihachev, the vice-president of committee of Council of federation on the international affairs, the former constant representative of Russia in EU:

- Sessions of General Assembly of the United Nations on which the non-permanent member of Security Council of the United Nations from Latin America and Caribbean basin should be chosen. Guatemala and Venezuela apply for this place. The difficult situation round voting speaks about polarisation of modern relations. Not a secret that a nominee of Guatemala the USA, and Venezuela - the European Union actively supports. Americans want to have support in intentions on creation of the unipolar world, and EU, as well as Russia, considers that members of Security Council should be presented territorially in regular intervals. Chances of candidates are approximately equal, crisis can achieve only a contractual way.

Boris Titov, the chairman of the organisation Business Russia :

- Coming into force of the new law on a competition, providing reduction of a role of the state in economy and strengthening of antimonopoly regulation. In America from - for nereguliruemosti a competition has come black Tuesday 1929. New edition assumes simplification of the administrative legislation and a transparency of the help of the state to the companies. I hope, after its coming into force at whom the goods, instead of those who is closer to the power are better will win. I think, the prices for gasoline too can decrease.

Arcady Dvorkovich, the head of expert management of the president of Russia:

- Presidium of council about realisation of national projects under the chairmanship of Dmitry Medvedev on whom we will discuss creation of two national universities - in Rostov and Krasnoyarsk.

Maxim Bystrov, zamrukovoditelja Federal agency on management OEZ:

- Announcements of regions - the winners who have received the status of special economic zones turistsko - recreational type. How many they will be, to tell difficult, but than five are exact not less. Unfortunately, not all demands have passed competition: at ten candidates documents have not been issued properly. The greatest activity was shown by Krasnodar, Baikal, Altai. But most of all I liked the original demand from Yakutia which suggests to organise a zone on the basis of the Museum of a mammoth.
