The Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako asked President Vladimir Putin to restore the amount of funds cut by the Ministry of Transport for the construction of bridges in Primorye. He voiced the request as part of a meeting with the president via video communications today, April 21.

Kozhemyako called the critical situation with the provision of transport links on the Vladivostok-Nakhodka section. He referred to the constant destruction of bridges and, as a result, difficulties with logistics.

The head of Primorye said that initially the region was allocated 30 billion for the construction of bridges, but then the Ministry of Transport reduced funding to seven billion.

“We ask you to return to the old scheme - to support us in the allocation of 30 billion rubles until 2024,” said Kozhemyako.

Vladimir Putin instructed Transport Minister Yevgeny Dietrich to consider increasing funding for this purpose. The president obliged both to report on the outcome of the negotiations.
