The President visited the Primorsky Oceanarium under construction, after which he held a closed meeting

President Vladimir Putin visited the Primorsky Oceanarium under construction in the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences on Russky Island. Vladimir Putin examined the dolphinarium, where dolphins, aquariums and bathyscaphe have not yet been launched. The head of state was also shown a unique film created by Russian cinematographers on new computer technologies.

The scientific and educational complex "Primorsky Oceanarium" on the Russky Island is to become one of the largest such facilities in the world. Its area will exceed 30 thousand square meters, the aquarium can accommodate 15-18 thousand individuals.

Initially, the object was planned to be opened by the beginning of the APEC-2012 summit, but the date of its commissioning was postponed several times. Vladimir Putin personally monitors the progress of work and more than once called for speeding up the construction.

The president came to this unfinished building several times. The last visit took place a little over a year ago. Local officials and builders then assured the head of state that the opening of the oceanarium was not far off, but the matter did not move further than promises, despite the fact that funding was proceeding regularly.

The ministers who arrived from Moscow admitted in behind-the-scenes conversations: there is money, but they all settle on someone's accounts, reports Life News. This was confirmed by the scientific director of the complex Andrei Andriyanov, saying that there is finance.

Putin’s visit is likely to get things moving.

The president clearly remained dissatisfied with what he saw and decided to hold a closed meeting with a number of officials who are involved in the construction of the oceanarium. It was attended by officials and representatives of inspection bodies, who promised an early delivery of the facility.

The Oceanarium on Russky Island is the largest scientific and educational center. Visitors will walk along a glass corridor inside an aquarium with outlandish inhabitants of the deep water.

Vladivostok residents had to see all this beauty two years ago, but the opening of the center was postponed several times: the builders did not cope with their obligations, and the firm that undertook the erection of the facility went bankrupt. However, now, after the revision of the head of state, the townspeople had a real chance to visit the oceanarium soon.


Initially, the object was planned to be opened by the beginning of the APEC-2012 summit, but the date of its commissioning was postponed several times. Vladimir Putin personally monitors the progress of work and more than once called for speeding up the construction. Due to the fact that the construction of the facility has been going on for several years, following the survey, the President decided to hold a meeting with a number of officials who are involved in the construction of the oceanarium.
