1. The cars in Moscow were faster

Many remember that in 2010, when Sobyanin headed Moscow, the city was on the verge of transport collapse. From the dormitories to the center we drive for hours. “They warned me: if you do not solve this problem, you will have to leave your post,” Sobyanin himself recalls this time. As a result, 1,200 km of new roads were built, new types of public transport appeared, such as the MCC and MCD, and electric buses were launched to replace the outdated ones. And now, there are fewer traffic jams, despite the fact that there are 1.5 million more inhabitants and 500,000 more cars. And this work continues: the launch of the Moscow High-Speed ​​Diameter, the opening of the third and fourth diameter railways, and then the fifth.

2. New industrialization

Factories and factories are no longer expelled from Moscow under the pretext that they have no place in the financial and cultural center of the country. On the contrary, the authorities support actual production. That is why, when the foreign companies left, the auto industry did not collapse in the capital. Only six months later, the Moskvich plant was reactivated. Instead of outdated workshops, modern companies are being born in industrial zones, such as the National Space Center, Technopolis Moscow and the Lomonosov Moscow Innovation Cluster. The unemployment rate in Moscow is the lowest in decades: only 0.37%, and there are 400,000 job offers in the vacancy database.

3. Renewal

In 2017, many residents viewed the most ambitious project to solve their housing problem with suspicion. But the first 120 thousand people out of a million included in the renovation are already living in new apartments. The authorities promise that this program, designed for 15 years, will be completed ahead of schedule.

4. Health care has become more accessible and convenient

The modernization of 201 polyclinics, that is, half of the city’s outpatient fund, is nearing completion. 90% of patients can now make an appointment with a doctor on the day of treatment. The first two emblematic emergency centers have already been put into operation and four more will be finished before the end of the year. Cancer care has been radically restructured, thanks to which 65% of cancer diseases are detected early, and only in the last four years the mortality rate from neoplasms has decreased by 11.6%. Life expectancy in Moscow has increased from 76 to 78 years, and by 2030 the goal is to increase it to 81 years.

5. As for the quality of education, Moscow is in the top three in the world.

This is the result of the international study of the quality of education PISA, which evaluated the reading, mathematical and scientific competence of schoolchildren. In 2016, Muscovites ranked sixth in terms of these indicators, and two years later they rose to third, leaving behind only students from Singapore and several Chinese provinces. And at the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren, 4.7 times more children became winners and prize-winners in Moscow than in 2010 – they took 51% of all prizes in the country. These children are not from the top three or five elite schools, as before, but from almost all educational institutions in the capital.

6. Social support for everyone who needs help

More than half of the capital’s budget is spent on social needs. This makes it possible to provide 4.7 million people with free transportation, benefits for housing and communal services, and other payments. The level of poverty in the city decreased by 1.8 times, there were three times as many large families. 100% of orphans over the age of 18 have apartments.

7. Sports: a short distance from home

150 sports facilities have been built and reconstructed, high-quality sports fields have appeared in all districts. Every second Muscovite regularly plays sports.

8. 2 thousand monuments restored

In the past there were massive actions in defense of the monuments. The city, at its expense, preserves them for posterity, opening the doors to the best of them for all.

9. Safe City

Over the decade, crime in Moscow has dropped by a third. The capital is in the TOP-5 of the most illuminated cities in the world. The video surveillance system helped reduce the number of robberies by 94% and car theft by 92%.

10. Digital services help Muscovites to solve many problems easily and simply

Only on the mos.ru portal there are 400 such services that can be used to make an appointment with a doctor, call a veterinarian at home, pay utility bills, remove unnecessary bulky items from home and even participate in elections.

11. 17 modes of transportation are available to any resident of the city

Metro, MCC, MCD, suburban trains, aeroexpress, buses, trams, electric buses, taxis, intercity and international buses, long-distance trains, carsharing, cable car, bicycle and scooter rental, air transport. 89% of Muscovites live within walking distance of the metro, MCC and MCD.

By 2030, the Moscow bus fleet will completely switch to electric buses, and modern trams will also run on the updated tram tracks. Photo: RIA Novosti

12. Comfortable space close to home

The 24,000 patios, as well as most of the streets and squares, have been landscaped in the city as part of the My District program. 200 km of roads have been repaired, 473 km of cycle paths and bike lanes have been created, and 1,000 hectares of parks and recreational areas have been conditioned and repaired.
