Answering the host's question about the concept of a 15-minute city, the mayor noted that this principle should be pursued.
“We have a different program. It is not called a “15-minute city”, it is called more simply - “My district”, which has everything: a kindergarten, a school, a hospital, a restaurant, trade, jobs, ”said Sobyanin.
