TASS: “In five months, Chairman of Russian Investigative Committee received 1,700 requests in VK”

Alexander Bastrykin looks through them personally, the Committee noted.

The Investigative Committee of Russia said to TASS that in five months since the opening of his page in VK social network, Chairman of the Committee Alexander Bastrykin has received 1,700 requests.

This number was announced at the meeting of Bastrykin with Senior Media Liaison Assistants from 28 regional directorates of the Investigative Committee.

During the meeting, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee spoke in detail about interaction with citizens. “This is the most important activity; please deliver this message to your executives. They have to know what concerns people in their regions,” the Head of the Committee said.

One more way to contact the Chairman in person was implemented this year through VK social network. In five months alone, over 1,700 messages have been received, and the Chairman views them personally on a daily basis.

At that, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia provided specific examples of strict response measures against lack of adequate reaction by regional investigations directorates to complaints, which people have to report to the Chairman in person. In reference to this, he once again requested the attending staff members to convey the importance of this work, including the online channel of communication, to their executives.
