MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
New measures have been added to the federal target program “Development of the Republic of Karelia”, which provide for the construction of social facilities and the reconstruction of transport infrastructure. The decree on this was signed by the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin.
We are talking about the creation of a sports complex for children and youth schools, the construction of a surgical building of the Emergency Hospital and a histological laboratory in Petrozavodsk. The program also includes the construction of a bridge across the Vorsunsalmi Strait in the city of Sortavala, the reconstruction of the Petrozavodsk-Suoyarvi highway and the modernization of the bridge on the Kola highway.
The total amount of federal funding for these facilities will amount to 6.4 billion rubles. Of these, more than 652 million rubles have already been allocated at the end of April from the reserve fund of the Government. “These objects are important both for the residents of the region and for tourists. And the possibility of comfortable travel on roads and repaired bridges will attract many travelers to these places, ”Mikhail Mishustin said at a government meeting on April 27, when the issue of allocating funding was considered.
Karelia is one of the regions with a difficult socio-economic situation. For such territories, individual development programs are provided, taking into account their strengths and weaknesses, as well as additional support from the federal budget.
Mikhail Mishustin visited Karelia at the end of January. He met with businessmen, visited the Emergency Hospital of Petrozavodsk, and examined the Solomensky Sawmill. As a result of the trip, a set of instructions was formed aimed at solving urgent problems of the region, including the development of the tourism industry, increasing the availability of medical care, and removing barriers to doing business.
The document will be published.
