Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian government, together with the regions, to develop a plan for the gasification of regions, including free connection of households to gas. The President promised to personally monitor the implementation of this order.

He stated this within the framework of the announcement of the message to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. Putin considers it unacceptable for Russians to pay to connect households to gas.

“A lot of Russian families live in settlements to which gas networks have already been connected, but their homes do not have access to gas,” the head of state said.

He added that it is necessary to discuss the details with Gazprom and other companies working in this area in the near future.

Last year the President of Russia instructed the government together with the regions, ensure the phased completion of gasification by 2024 and 2030 (second stage).

In March, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that the level of gasification in the Far East is only 18%... The all-Russian indicator is over 70%. Mishustin called the region's low supply of natural gas a serious problem.
