Temporarily fulfilling duties of the Governor of the Omsk region Alexander Burkov told about the interference of development of the local economy. One of them he found the meme “don’t try to leave Omsk”, according to “Moskovsky Komsomolets”.
“With the meme “don’t try to leave Omsk” there was, of course, there is a great desire among investors to move to the region where there is lack of optimism. And why was not — the power to live behind closed doors. While I will not say that we are an attractive investment. Mentally there is no such desire in business. Although the field of investment is quite broad,” said he.
In December 2017 Burkov has instructed the government to deal with high level of outward migration from the region. According to him, the region “is not visible prospects.” “Live in style “insecure party”: “as average. Food, water and some household appliances”. Of course, will be running the youth”, — noted acting Governor.
For the first time the phrase “don’t try to leave Omsk” appeared on the website of the private blog “Leper colony” in 2010. In 2014 she became popular among the residents of the city and could refer to the monument in the form of a ball on the area of Buchholz, who twice fell from the pedestal and rolled in different directions. In July of this year Omsk “channel 12” has patented the phrase as a trademark.
