Pskov Commissioner took part in conference

On November 16, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Pskov Region Dmitry Shakhov took part in the regional conference of the All-Russian People’s Front (hereinafter — ONF).

The event was attended by about 100 people — representatives of the executive and local self-government bodies, the Pskov Region Council of Trade Unions and public organizations. Representatives of the ONF summed up the preliminary results of their activities in the region and outlined plans for further work.

During his speech, Dmitry Shakhov thanked the members of the ONF for their active work related to the protection of the rights and legitimate interests of citizens, and for the public control of governing institutions.

"Controlling the authorities and local self-government bodies is not always easy even for professionals, but doing it professionally, especially on a voluntary basis, on enthusiasm is doubly difficult," the ombudsperson said.

In addition, Dmitry Shakhov spoke about the problems affecting the rights and legitimate interests of citizens that exist in the Pskov Region, cause a public outcry and require public control and support. According to the regional Commissioner, such problems are compliance with the legislation on the resettlement of citizens from emergency and dilapidated housing, the situation with defrauded shareholders, the observance of the environmental rights of the region’s residents, as well as monitoring presidential decrees on salaries of workers of budgetary organizations.

Within the framework of the regional ONF conference, activists voiced public initiatives aimed at solving urgent problems and affecting various spheres of citizens' lives.
