The state program for the development of shipbuilding did not provide for subsidies for the construction of crab catchers at the Far Eastern shipyards. This follows from the draft changes made to it.

As the Kommersant, in the explanatory note to the document, it is noted that the draft budget for 2021 and planned 2022-2023 under the state program provides for financing - 25,4 billion rubles, 21,9 billion and 25,3 billion rubles, respectively. These amounts differ from those provided for by the current version of the state program: for 2021, 2,3 billion were added, and for 2022-2023, funding was reduced by 2,8 billion and 6,9 billion rubles. In general, over three years, it has decreased by 7,4 billion rubles.

Funding for the next year was increased due to a shift from 2022 to 2021 in the contribution to the charter capital of the United Shipbuilding Corporation to support ship leasing. The Zvezda shipyard will also receive additional money - 31,2 billion rubles to compensate for the difference between the market price and the cost of building large-tonnage vessels.

Previously, 116 billion rubles were requested for state support for the purchase of vessels for three years, but the requested additional appropriations were not approved in full. There is no money in the state program to subsidize the construction of crab catchers at the Far Eastern shipyards. Now, crab miners fear that they will never receive the promised subsidies.

In August, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the allocation of fishing companies compensation for the construction of crab catchers at the Far Eastern shipyards. The subsidy will be 20% of the order value. Moreover, the amount will not exceed 340 million rubles. It was planned that the new regulation will begin to operate on January 1, 2021.
