more interesting (though hardly more important) thing, however, not these financial tag, and comment, this newspaper by a member of the Chamber. " when he came to the conclusion that the goals and objectives Rosokhrankultura unclear, but the service itself is physically unable to manage their territorial bodies, the Chamber raised the question to the Ministry of Culture for its liquidation", - he said. Quite unexpectedly.
So what actually are the "goals and objectives" Rosokhrankultura? According to the official website of the Federal Service for Supervision of Law for the Protection of Cultural Heritage (The full name of service), is the protection of cultural heritage, copyright and related rights, as well as the attendant control and supervisory measures and legal regulation. In addition, the office in charge of monitoring the import and export of cultural property, and the Chamber are convinced that this activity constitutes the bulk of Rosokhrankultura.
In Rosokhrankultura, headed by 34-year-old Alexander Kibovsky, disagreed. They argue that under the control of the service is more monuments than believes the Chamber, including 8 of the 13 objects from the list of UNESCO. In addition, staff Rosokhrankultura rightly notes that the claim for licensing restorers have become obsolete, because service is still pending the conclusion of the auditors asked the government to draft the abolition of this procedure.
In fact, Rosokhrankultura really protect those monuments that can. A striking example is the situation with the Museum-Estate "Arkhangelsk", for which the service is struggling for some time. Most of the land of the museum-estate (the total area of buffer zone is about 600 hectares) leased to private companies, and in the fight against illegal housing construction in the territory of the memorial service has dozens of lawsuits, some of which have already won. In addition, Rosokhrankultura, as the Ministry of Culture, opposes construction of the St. Petersburg skyscraper "Ohta-Center".
Success end, however, not all attempts agencies to combat the illegal exploitation of monuments. Thus, Rosokhrankultura failed to defend the territory of the Kazan Kremlin, which was built next to it houses the Ministry of Agriculture of Tatarstan will be put into operation. Similarly, the failure ended the fight for farm Shakhovskys in Moscow. Moreover, as recognized by the Kibovskogo, despite the work of service "monuments of cultural heritage in Russia are removed each day."
In the regions, by the way, Rosokhrankultura general practically devoid of tools of influence. Since 2006, the regional protection of monuments of federal importance to the regional supervisory organization, accountable to local authorities. The power agency Kibovskogo applies only to have to agree nomination of the manager responsible for the protection of monuments. Thus, a nominally correct actions and a set of functions Rosokhrankultura still remains a department that is actually a little on that may have an impact. Functioning within the Ministry, the service in general, performs the same function without having the appropriate resources.
Rosokhrankultura Originally conceived as a service whose primary function will be the protection of monuments; planned that its effectiveness will be provided only supervisory functions, not combined with economic, as it was before. Creating a department that had appeared recently - in 2004 - received a positive otlik as experts had hoped that now the preservation of monuments will be really someone to deal with. First Rosokhrankultura worked yet and the control of the media, and in 2007 added to the Office Rossvyaznadzor. However, such a merger was considered a failure, and the next year the Office was disbanded, and control over the media moved on to created at the same time Minkomsvyazi.
All of these transformations took place against a background of constant change legislation in the field of cultural heritage. Thus, Kibovsky, once headed Rosokhrankultura two years ago, confronted with the fact that the task set before the service is not always possible to meet due to the fact that this, paradoxically, prevents the law, as happened, for example, if the homestead Shukhov. It is noteworthy that one of the reasons for the ineffectiveness of the Rosokhrankultura Chamber is the fact that all the time of its existence, the Office was in the process of transformation.
In any case, while the information on the Abolition of Rosokhrankultura - is nothing more than a rumor. The papers say that Mr. Putin reportedly already signed a decree prepared by Avdeev, but officially it is not confirmed. Even if this is true, then the latter will be given to Dmitry Medvedev. Yesterday the Kremlin said that while the question of abolishing the Ministry of Culture under the jurisdiction of service has not been president.
If Rosokhrankultura still be abolished, the Ministry of Culture will be just one more or less independent agency - Rosarchiv. Once, in 2004, when the Ministry was reformed, there were four, including the addition Rosarkhiv and Rosokhrankultura Roskultura (abolished in 2008) and Rospechat (reassigned Minkomsvyazi in 2008). That is, after the movie, which was headed by Roskultura, the ministry will return and functions for the Protection of Monuments. In this context, one of the main issues that arise after the liquidation of security agencies, is, whether the political will to change the situation with Avdeeva monuments for the better. Maybe they at least will not disappear so quickly.
