Head of Bashkiria took third place in governors rating for sports development

The Center for Current Politics has compiled a rating of Russian governors who pay great attention to sports development. The third place after the mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin and the Governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov went to the Head of Bashkiria, Radiy Khabirov.
According to researchers, the first person of our republic is one of the most mentioned governors in social media on sports topics.
"The role of the heads of regions in the popularization of sports can be measured by analyzing the number and nature of their mentions in the context of sports topics in social media (the total number of mentions, not only in the governors accounts in social media). The leader in this indicator was the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov (active development of the Akhmat fight club), the second place went to the Governor of the Moscow Region Andrei Vorobyov (sports events and the Governor's scholarship programs), the third place to the Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov (regional athlete support programs)," the Center analysts said in an official statement.
The Minister of Sports of Bashkiria Ruslan Khabibov recalled that Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin set the country's sports industry a task - to bring the share of citizens who regularly engage in physical culture and sports to 55 percent by 2024. In the last two years alone, more than 1.8 million people systematically go in for physical culture and sports in the republic, which is 48.54% of the total population.
"The Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, and the Government pay great attention to the sports industry. We are building sports facilities. Today we are the second in Russia in the number of sports facilities - we have more than 12 thousand physical culture and sports facilities throughout the republic. In 2020, for the first time in Russia, we implemented the Rural Coach project in Bashkiria, which will help develop sports in rural settlements. Using the program, coaches can improve their living conditions - 600 thousand rubles are allocated to the project participant from the republic's budget. Bashkortostan became the innovator of this project in Russia; other regions are following our example."
Ruslan Khabibov noted that the Head of the Region set the trend for a healthy lifestyle in his social media.
