The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed to liquidate the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug.
According to the State Duma deputy, it is necessary to make a monolithic subject of the Russian Federation, together with the Tyumen region, by defeating the so-called “Tyumen matryoshka”.
“Why all this?” – said Zhirinovsky.
The politician supported the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Marat Khusnullin, who expressed his view on the enlargement of a number of regions of the country by joining them with more economically stable ones. Zhirinovsky noted that a total of 40 regions should remain in Russia, this will solve many problems, for example, the construction of roads and hospitals.
