The Far Eastern Express branded train launched in the Moscow metro

A new branded train "Far Eastern Express" enters the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line of the Moscow metro, the launch of the train opened a set of events "Days of the Far East Regions in Moscow - 2021". This is the fourth time the theme train has entered the metro line. Traditionally, the dispatch of the Far Eastern Express was started by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev.

“Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has declared the development of the Far East a national priority. Hundreds of investment projects are being implemented in the region. New schools and hospitals are being built. Significant funds have been allocated for this in the budget of the Russian Federation. It is important that the Far East develops in commonwealth and interaction with the whole of Russia.

In Moscow, the capital of our Motherland, a significant amount of financial resources is concentrated, business activity is concentrated. It is necessary that Muscovites, entering the carriages of this train, remember that we have the Far East - a wonderful place for travel, leisure and business; just in order to acquire one hectare and get new freedom and create something on the earth, ”said Yuri Trutnev. 

The ceremonial launch of the new theme train took place on November 9 at the Krasnaya Presnya depot. The train includes ten cars, six of them are divided into two sections and are dedicated to eleven regions of the Far East: from Chukotka to Buryatia. The Far Eastern Express will run in the Moscow metro for six months, it is planned that during this time more than 2 million passengers will be able to learn about the sights, history and unique nature of the Far Eastern Federal District. Residents and guests of Moscow will see photographs of the famous Kamchatka volcanoes, the bridge to the Russky Island in Primorye, the Sakhalin coast and the Kuril Islands, the incredible Lake Baikal and the Vostochny cosmodrome, get acquainted with the unique natural resources and fauna of the easternmost territory of Russia. 

“Russia is beautiful, but after taking this train you understand that its greatest treasure is the Far East. The Far East occupies 40% of the territory of our country, and each car of this train conveys the energy of people, nature, the depth of history, civilization that originated there and from which the greatness of our country began. I would like to congratulate the creative team of this project and the team of the Moscow Metro, and most importantly - the Muscovites themselves for being lucky enough to touch this miracle, the miracle of the Far East. I really hope that this touch will inspire in Muscovites a desire to visit there, "- shared his impressions of the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, Alexei Chekunkov.

Three more carriages of the train will tell passengers about special programs for the development of the Far East. Passengers of the first carriage will be able to find out all the information about the Far Eastern Hectare program and take a selfie against the background of their “future section”. The second carriage talks about the opportunities for study and employment in the Far East. The cars are represented by the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and the Corporation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic.

A separate carriage was prepared with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation. It provides information on key reserves for eleven regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, eco-trails, "green" routes, rare species of animals and volunteer programs designed to preserve the unique nature of the Far East and its inhabitants. 

Also, a bright "feature" of the "Far Eastern Express" model of 2021 is the restaurant car, which invites all connoisseurs of authentic cuisine to take a ride. On the walls of this car are recipes for Far Eastern cuisine from famous chefs from the regions of the Far East.
