They want to equate part of the Khabarovsk Territory with the territories of the Far North. It is assumed that this will lead to an improvement in the quality of life of people, as well as help attract competitive businesses.

As the TASS, Amur Region and the Republic of Tyva are also considered among the possible territories for joining. This proposal was made at an expanded meeting of the State Duma Committee on Regional Policy and Problems of the North and the Far East.

According to Irina Zikunova, chairman of the Zakduma of the Khabarovsk Territory, it is proposed to include the Tuguro-Chumikansky District of the Territory in the list of the Far North territories. In her opinion, the socio-economic problems of this municipality are similar to those existing in the Far North, primarily the problem of transport accessibility. Benefits and preferences of the Far North will increase the income of residents and reduce the outflow of the population.
