The Ministry of East Development proposed to include in the federal program for the development of the Kuril Islands the construction of wave protection structures in the port of the city of Kurilsk on Iturup Island. They want to do this to ensure safe ship service and increase cargo turnover, according to the next published issue of the EastRussia newsletter.

The project is estimated at 6,2 billion rubles. All work is expected to be completed by 2026. A document on this was prepared for the government to amend the federal target program "Social and Economic Development of the Kuril Islands for 2016-2025".

Now the water area of ​​the port of Kurilsk in Kitovaya Bay and the berthing facilities remain unprotected from the winds, significantly complicating the ability to safely maneuver the fishing, cargo and passenger fleets. Due to adverse climatic conditions, ship handling is not carried out in the port post in November-April, which leads to forced downtime of the onshore fish processing industry in the village of Kitovoe.

It is expected that the construction of structures will accelerate the passage of the inspection procedure during the passage of goods across the border, will help improve the logistics of the products of the fishing complex for enterprises operating in the Kuril Islands. The facilities should also provide safe conditions for servicing ships and uninterrupted maritime communication between Iturup and Sakhalin.
