The condition of the transport network in the rural areas of the Khabarovsk Territory is unsatisfactory

Today the Minister of Agriculture of Russia Nikolai Fedorov held a meeting at the regional Ministry of Agriculture of the Khabarovsk Territory on a sore point - the state of the transport network in rural areas. The minister called it unsatisfactory. In his opinion, the chances of solving one of the difficult Russian problems - making good roads - will increase from next year.

“The decisions that took place this week at a meeting of the Russian State Council chaired by the president allow us to collect the resources that are in the country in a more targeted manner so that they go to the villages and not be“ smeared ”at the regional level. We can and should allocate at least 5% of the road fund, in this case the Khabarovsk Territory, for the construction or repair of roads to rural settlements, "the minister said, noting that there is no such practice in the Khabarovsk Territory.

Nikolai Fedorov noted that in the Khabarovsk Territory due to its geographical location and territorial extent, the problem of car communication with rural areas is very acute. The reason, according to the Minister, is that at the regional or federal level, when forming the budget, money was not allocated separately for the villages.

“There will be many times more money for the construction of roads to the villages of the Khabarovsk Territory. This can be 100 guaranteed. We have under the state program to support the transport system about 7 billion rubles, which also do not reach the rural settlements. We agreed in Moscow that they will not be managed by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, which has enough of its problems besides the village, but by the Ministry of Agriculture, because it better understands the needs of the village, ”Nikolai Fedorov said.

In addition to 7 billion rubles from the federal budget, on the rural roads will go the money of the consolidated road fund. Of the trillion rubles available in it, 750 billion are road funds of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. If you take from them a minimum of 5%, you will get 30 billion, which will be sent for construction.

Nikolai Fyodorov emphasized that the authorities of all levels should work together on solving the issue of building rural roads. The minister was introduced to the meeting with a number of examples where local village authorities take the initiative and receive grants for repairs. However, there are few such settlements, but they should be helped at the regional level.

“On the one hand, it’s good, it’s great that there are such initiative people, and on the other, I drew the attention of the regional administration that initiatives can be filled with our support only if they are submitted to the federal authorities by the region. Not the head of a rural settlement, not an administration. The rules are such that the governor or his deputy should say: “Yes, we have talented people, yes, they do it, yes, this is interesting and useful for the region, so help your co-financing. Here everyone should consolidate their interests and resources, ”the Minister concluded.

Yesterday, the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport discussed the prospects for building roads with the Minister of Transport of Russia Maxim Sokolov.
