"I personally like Yakutia very much, there are wonderful people there, and the republic is rich in resources and needs to be developed" - Putin

Yesterday, in an interview with the TASS news agency, answering a question from journalists about the future of projects to build a bridge across the Lena River in Yakutsk and a port in Taman, the head of state said: "I personally love Yakutia very much. The people there are wonderful. And the republic is extremely rich in various resources. And we need to develop everything."

"Should a bridge be built in Yakutsk or not?", - Vladimir Putin emphasized.

Then he said: "What is next there? Yakutsk - 300 thousand people. Well, of course, I want people to have a bridge and so that they can move around peacefully. And the railway will fit right into the city. Do you want? Of course, you want ... But When we discuss this with our colleagues, they say: it's not just the population of a 300-strong city, but the fact is that the bridge is needed in order to continue the road to certain fields, in order to make this project not just social, which It is also important, but also to make it economically justified and expedient. But further it should be promoted there in order to import goods further as part of the provision of the north and to reach certain fields. This must be calculated. The only question is in a professional deep study of the issue. But in general , this is going in the right direction. "
