On April 23-24 the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of Russian Federation Victor Cherkesov came with a working visit to Petrozavodsk.

Answering the journalists questions about the goal of his visit, Victor Cherkesov said that "it's not a visit but a business trip aimed at getting familiar with the republic and analyzing the processes taking place in the republic." It's the second visit of Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of Russian Federation to the Republic of Karelia. After taking his position, Victor Cherkesov's first visit was to the Republic of Karelia in June 2000.

The leaders of the territorial subdivisions of federal structures also met with Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of Russian Federation.
"I met most of you during my last visit," Victor Cherkesov said. "A year ago the process of building up a new structure of territorial subdivisions took place. We defined the priorities, spoke about the government system of territorial subdivisions, about the control in the district. Today I see qualitative and structural changes of the departments you represent."
As V.Cherkesov put it, many of territorial divisions of federal bodies "closely cooperate with district departments of ministries and influence on the situation in the district."
"At present we are able to estimate not only some of the subdivisions achievements, but the government activities in the republic in general," V.Cherkesov pointed out. The year's work has been fruitful and efficient."
