On new ferries and aircraft Sakhalin authorities will allocate 10 billion rubles

The amount will be allocated from the regional budget 2016 year

On new ferries and aircraft Sakhalin authorities will allocate 10 billion rubles
From the regional budget of the Sakhalin region for 2017 year will be allocated 10 billion rubles for new aircraft and ferries. According to the press service of the government of the region, 4 billion rubles will be directed to passenger ships, and 2 billion rubles will be spent on new planes. Another 4 billion rubles will be used to finance the Vanino-Kholmsk crossing.

Recall that at the moment only one ship, the “Igor Farkhutdinov”, flies to the Kuril Islands. The second ship working on the line - Polaris - broke down, and it needs about 180,2 million rubles to repair it. Financing the repair of the Polaris vessel is currently being discussed when reviewing the Sakhalin budget for 2017 year. Recall that in the fall of this year a big scandal broke out, as a result of which Vladimir Degtyarev, Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Sakhalin Region, was removed from his post.

The reason for the resignation were great problems with the transport infrastructure, as a result of which people literally became hostages of their islands. For example, on the island of Shikotan, there were many months waiting to leave, as it was impossible to book tickets in advance, and only the 1 motor ship Igor Farkhutdinov was working, and Polaris was constantly under repair. In addition to serious inconveniences, citizens carried material costs, forced to travel in a roundabout way to their destination. To solve complex infrastructure tasks, the Sakhalin authorities are forced to allocate large funds and strengthen control over the fulfillment of obligations to residents of the region.
