The capital of Kuban took the first place in All-Russian competition for the title of the most well-furnished urban settlement in Russia in the first category – capitals of the Russian Federation Regions.

This is our common big victory. To take part in the competition we provided the Russian Federation Ministry of Construction with all required statistical information and indicators of the work done in the sphere of urban land improvement, communal services and construction over the past year. Just yesterday Chairman of the Russian Federation Government Dmitry Medvedev has signed the corresponding decree on awarding Krasnodar the first place in the category of the RF regional capitals. I congratulate all the citizens of Krasnodar on this event. In fact, this reflects work of all people living here, — Head of the capital of Kuban Vladimir Evlanov said.

Talking about continuation of urban land improvement activities Vladimir Evlanov also stated:

But the results of the competition prove yet again that presently the work on resolving all existing problems in the housing and communal services sector and the city beautification is being done better then in many other cities of Russia. For each of us this is a new impetus to work even better. I’m sure Krasnodar citizens love their city and will work even harder to make it more beautiful, well-furnished and liveable.
