State Program for the Development of the Far East threatens to reduce by 18 billion rubles

Funding federal target program "The socio-economic development of the Far East and the Baikal region" may be cut by 18 billion rubles of the stipulated funds due to the federal departments' failure to provide design and estimate documentation for facilities that were supposed to start building in 2015, EastRussia was told in the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East.

We are talking about the construction of 19 airfields of regional and local significance, 10 seaports, ferries for the Vanino-Kholmsk crossing, and six other socially significant facilities. 

The department's position is to save this money for the Far East, having financed in the current year those facilities 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 said 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 a 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.
