FTP on the development of the Far East and the Baikal region is cut by 18 billion rubles

As the EastRussia was told in the press service of the RF Ministry of Finance, an indication about optimizing expenditures was given by the Russian president. Profile ministries and departments, in turn, have enough authority to determine the most priority areas. In the course of optimization, in particular, the financing was reduced by 18 billion rubles federal target program "Socio-economic development of the Far East and the Baikal region".

Earlier on the possible cuts in funds due to the federal agencies not providing design estimates for facilities that were supposed to start building in 2015 year, EastRussia Reported in the press service of the Ministry of Development. The position of the department was to save this money for the Far East, having funded in the current year those objects for which there is a design and estimate documentation.

“There are such facilities - for example, the perinatal center in Khabarovsk has a ready-made project for the reconstruction of the obstetric building. There are a number of elaborated measures for the development of water supply infrastructure in Khabarovsk and Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The documentation for the bank protection of the Amur River embankment in Blagoveshchensk is ready, "the ministry's press service gave examples of facilities.

The head of Yakutia, Yegor Borisov, also spoke about the fact that the financing of the federal target program "Social and Economic Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region" is threatened with reduction after the meeting of the heads of regions with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on April 4 in Khabarovsk.

"Federal target programs have been reduced by 10%, the program for the Far East and the Baikal region - by 41%," said Borisov agency "Interfax-Far East". He also added that he is against reducing the financing of projects: from 18 billion rubles, which fell under the reduction, 10 billion rubles accounted for projects in Yakutia, including the construction of new airports in the region.
