Chechnya complying with American standards2012-01-13 19:03
President of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov has been awarded a medal for introducing advanced technologies in construction by ASTM International American Society. Ahmad Kadyrov Avenue, a new stadium, a mosque - everything is built according to global standards. However, the construction takes billions of rubles, the Turkish workers being deported without being paid. But Chechnya is prospering. Soon it will start oil refining in line with ASTM gauge.
No Russian governor has ever earned an award received in the USA by President of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov - a medal from ASTM International, an organization for testing materials. Besides, Kadyrov has been awarded a crystal cup and
a diploma for the contribution and understanding of the value of standardization in scientific, technical and economic development of the Chechen Republic.
According to head of the Republican Center of Metrology and Certification Alvi Shamilev, this kind of award is very hard to earn. American Society for Testing Materials is the world largest organization for standards development and it has duly appreciated Kadyrov's aspiration towards the state-of-the-art restoration of the republic.
Today Grozny is compared to European cities. Streets and avenues are paved with shaped tile. Beautiful houses of various architectural designs are lining the streets; the biggest mosque is simply gorgeous. Forty-storeyed skyscrapers of the Grozny-City complex and a state-of-the-art Ahmat-Arena stadium housing thirty thousand people have been commissioned last year. The sports complex provides all types of sports constructions; it can be accessed by handicapped people. The western stand has seven tiers; the seats being reinforced with a carcass. Everything is done according to global standards.
When asked about the money all the luxury is built on, Chechen authorities mention investments or, as Ramzan Kadyrov says, "Allah gives us everything". However, it is universally known that the money for socio-economic development of the republic is allocated by Moscow. 120 billion rubles have been sent to Chechnya under a special federal program for 2008-2011. Moscow annually subsidizes the republic for 60 percent of the budget, allocating 50 billion rubles each year. It is almost 50 thousand rubles per capita; while a resident of Stavropolye costs Russian budget just 6 thousand rubles.
When rebuked for unfair means distribution, Russian government says the money is spent efficiently in Chechnya.
