The development plan for the infrastructure of the Northern Sea Route (NSR) until 2035 was approved by the Russian government. The order was signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

As noted in the explanatory note to order, measures are aimed at creating infrastructure for the further development of the Northern Sea Route and coastal territories. This should allow an increase in freight traffic by 2024 to 80 million tons.

The plan provides for the development and approval of the development parameters of the raw material base, the development and state support program for domestic shipbuilding, the development of hydro-navigation, meteorological, rescue, communication and information infrastructure of the NSR. Also taken into account is the development of a system of centralized operational-tactical management of year-round navigation in the Northern Sea Route.

In total, the plan included 84 events. The reconstruction of the objects of the seaports of Pevek and Sabetta, as well as airports in Chukotka, in Yakutia and the Nenets Autonomous District, is envisaged. It is included in the plan and construction of special ice-class rescue ships and nuclear leader icebreakers of the Leader class.

This summer, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, demanded from Rosatom make a plan infrastructure development of the Northern Sea Route. At the State Commission for the Arctic, the Deputy Prime Minister was dissatisfied with the fact that work is being carried out only in the direction of building and operating icebreakers. The Russian government estimates that the volume of goods transported along the Northern Sea Route by 2035 will reach 160 million tons - twice the performance planned for 2024.
