The Amur Region hopes to return the project "BL-220 kV February-Rudnaya" to the development program of the Far East

The Amur Region hopes for the help of the Federation in the construction project of the 220 kV Fevralsk-Rudnaya VL, which was previously excluded from the Far East development program. At the last meeting of the Federation Council, Amur Senator Nikolai Savelyev recalled that less than a month ago the Russian government allocated 42 billion rubles for the development of the Far East, and inquired about plans for the distribution of this money, IA Port Amur reports.

Of course, the principle of dividing existing funding is important to our subject: either these funds will be directed to 2-3 large, key projects in the Far East, such as, for example, the expansion of BAM, or the government will distribute money in shares across all entities, said Nikolai Saveliev.

According to the member of the Council of Federation, there is one of the large projects in the territory of the Amur Region - the construction of "BL-220 kV February-Rudnaya", which was previously included in the program for the development of the Far East. Two years ago this project was excluded from the program, but the region hopes for its return.

In a section with the general financing which now will allocate, the small sum is required - hardly more than one billion rubles. But for our region this is a very significant support. Due to this project, we will reduce the costs of gold mining companies, and, consequently, the cost of their production will decrease and the taxable base will increase. The region will only benefit from this, the senator explained.

Yury Trutnev replied that the final decision has not yet been made, and all the wishes of the subjects of the government will be taken into account.
