Rostislav Turovsky: Sakhalin overcomes subsidized dependence

Vice President of the Center for Political Technologies, Rostislav Turovsky, shared with the opinion that the regions of the Far East are highly subsidized and some of them are among the most subsidized subjects of the federation.

According to him, the federal authorities actively subsidize the remote northern regions, where Russia has the highest costs of economic activity: for this reason, Yakutia receives the most federal money, and, depending on federal transfers, Kamchatka and Magadan Oblast consistently fall into the number of Russian leaders. 

“The only example of a region that has practically overcome its dependence on subsidies is Sakhalin in the Far East,” Turovsky said. - Based on the results of the first half of 2014, it is clear that the center practically stopped funding Sakhalin, since the share of gratuitous transfers amounted to a record low 2,1%. At the same time, this kind of financial "freedom" should by no means please Sakhalin residents. Let us recall that the federal target program for the socio-economic development of the Kuril Islands is being implemented in the region, which, although significantly inferior in terms of funding to the "main" Far Eastern FTP, is of great importance for remote island territories. "

As for the two key regions of the Far East - Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories, they are large recipients of federal aid, but they also have good incomes of their own. For this reason, the level of their subsidies is noticeably lower than in other regions of the Far East, the expert believes. More details:
