President proposed to complete the aquarium in Vladivostok for six months

The Primorsky Oceanarium, which for several years cannot be completed on the Russky Island in Vladivostok, should be ready in six months. Such terms were set by the head of state. The closed meeting put those responsible for the object in an uncomfortable position, a number of federal media writes today.

In September, 2013, when V. Putin visited the aquarium, the management complained about the lack of money. Then the head of state proposed to revise plans, minimize costs so that the quality of construction and internal equipment of the building was not affected. V.Putin examined the dolphinarium, where dolphins and aquariums, which are located along the walls and overhead, have not yet been launched. the government had to intervene personally.

President when visiting the aquarium, as noted "Interfax", was laconic.

And the special correspondent. "B" Andrei Kolesnikov noted that the president was gloomy as never before. “He often has to inspect objects under construction. But I have never seen Vladimir Putin doing this as gloomy as yesterday,” wrote the special correspondent. "B" Andrey Kolesnikov. He somehow unkindly walked around room after room, listened to the explanations without nodding, asked when they were supposed to hand over, heard that it was already three months ago, but that "the readiness is 94%!", The journalist writes.

“Last time they asked for money,” said Vladimir Putin, examining the unfinished construction.

You might think that there are still problems with the financing of the object. But as he writes LifeNews, funding went well. True, according to media reports, the ministers who came from Moscow confessed in the backroom conversations: there is money, but they all settle on someone's accounts. This was confirmed by the scientific complex manager Andrei Andriyanov, saying that finances are there.

15 billion rubles have already been spent on construction, and another 12 billion rubles have been frozen until a new contractor is found. The contract with the previous contractor, OOO NPO Mostovik, was terminated due to its bankruptcy. And coincidentally, on the eve of Putin's visit to Vladivostok, a criminal case was opened against the head of the company, deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Omsk Region Oleg Shishov.

According to the media, the president, having examined those present, selectively invited several people to proceed to the meeting. Out of an uneven system, as the special correspondent writes. Kommersant, the head of Sberbank German Gref, presidential aide Andrei Fursenko, the governor of the region Vladimir Miklushevsky (although the governor is here, the object is in charge of the presidential administration - editor's note), the president’s affairs manager Alexander Kolpakov (formerly was here: construction began with him).

According to the project's scientific manager Andrei Andriyanov, commissioning of the facility is possible in 9-12 months. However, the meeting participants reported that they were given six months to the aquarium.
