Argumented opinion on TOR "Zarechie" will be formed after public examination

When creating priority development areas, much attention is paid to explanatory work, public expertise, and public consultations. This was announced by the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East Alexander Galushka, answering a journalist's question about the active public discussion that unfolded in Yakutia around the Zarechye TOP project.

«This is a natural accompaniment to all the work that we do. Indeed, my colleagues informed me that partly there are elements of misunderstanding in this situation, partly the rightly posed questions. All this is the subject of a calm, detailed explanatory work of taking into account the opinions of citizens in the formation of territories of advanced development ", - explained Alexander Galushka during communication with the press during the first meeting of the deputy-senatorial club of the Far Eastern Federal District, which took place on Friday. He stressed that based on the results of the elaboration of the issue, a well-grounded reasoned opinion should be formed.

First Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Alexey Struchkov explained to EastRussia that in the region "a feasibility study is being prepared, which will be ready at the end of May this year. Undoubtedly, in accordance with the requirements of the current legislation, when a preliminary feasibility study is prepared and when the investor decides that he will implement this project, public hearings will be held».

“I assure you that the ecological component of this project will be thoroughly worked out and production that will have a negative impact on the environment and ecology will not be implemented on the territory of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia),” promised Alexey Struchkov.

Enterprises that do not comply with the norms of environmental legislation do not exist in Russia and those will not be built in the Far East, the deputy prime minister and presidential envoy of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev supported the topic.

«In Russia, one of the most stringent environmental laws in the world. Accordingly, nothing can be built that can harm people. We have environmental problems, but they arise with old enterprises, which we inherited from the USSR", - he said.

Yuri Trutnev also emphasized that people "always have a balance of understanding how to live: in a crystal clear natural environment or still have some money in their pockets, but at the same time have an enterprise somewhere."

«This balance is fully complied with the environmental legislation of Russia. In addition, for this purpose there are special sections related to specially protected natural areas, territories of traditional lands. That is, in any case, all the interests of people will be met, but the economy in the Far East should be developed", - the Deputy Prime Minister expressed his opinion.
