The government of the Sakhalin Oblast decided to postpone the construction of a multifunctional cultural center (MCC) in times of crisis. It is due to the coronavirus pandemic and the unstable situation in the hydrocarbon market, which directly affects the budget of the island region.

According to the press service of the regional government, the MCC planned to build in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on the site of the former House of Officers. In the center there should have been concert, chamber, exhibition halls, a transformer hall, rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, rooms for creative workshops and recording studios.

The construction of the center was supposed to begin on the terms of public-private partnership. Its value is estimated at over 21 billion rubles. The authorities are not going to abandon the project, they will return to it as soon as the economic situation in the country and in Sakhalin in particular allows.
