The question of the construction of a metallurgical plant in Yakutia is resolved - Borisov

The issue of building a metallurgical plant in Yakutia has been resolved, said Yegor Borisov in an interview with the TV channel NEC Sakha, the press service of the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) under the President of the Russian Federation reports.

We always toughly raise the question of the interests of Yakutia before subsoil users, - said the acting head of the republic. - Firstly, it is staffing. Residents of Yakutia must work at the enterprises. Secondly, our enterprises should be involved in the construction of facilities. Third, the compulsory construction of social facilities. Thus, Surgutneftegaz has built the YAGSKhA building, the Cholbon pool and other facilities, including in Lensk and Vitim. A similar task has been set for ALROSA and Gazprom. When negotiations were going on with EVRAZ-Holding, which is developing the Taezhnoye iron ore deposit on the border of the Neryungri and Aldan regions, one of the conditions was the construction of a metallurgical plant. This was stated in the license agreement. However, then the metal market "sank", and the EVRAZ holding abandoned this project.

I put the question before Vladimir Putin that the subsoil users must fulfill the conditions, despite the circumstances. Vladimir Vladimirovich supported me. Right at the meeting, he instructed Mr Abramov to build a metallurgical plant. It is very important to us that it should appear by the 2020 year.

The next question I posed, of course, was about the construction of a bridge over the Lena River. This topic always remains under my control. Because today we propose not only the development of the Yakutsk logistics network, but also the construction of a transport corridor jointly with China. It will pass through Yakutia with an exit from South Yakutia to the Northern Sea Route. This transport corridor could shorten the route to Europe for China by 2,5 miles. In addition, in this way we would solve the issue of transport accessibility of the republic.
