The Russian government plans to connect Transbaikalia to the Far Eastern Federal District
The deputy chairman of the Russian government - presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev - is considering a decision to transfer the Trans-Baikal Territory from the Siberian Federal District to the Far East. He should make a report to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
In July, the Prime Minister supported the idea of including Transbaikalia in the Far Eastern Federal District, but asked to finalize it in the light of the opinions of the ministries. As told "The Parliamentary Newspaper" head of the Federation Council Committee on the federal structure, regional policy, local self-government and the affairs of the North, Oleg Melnichenko, Minskostokrazvitiya and the Ministry of Economic Development have already given a positive conclusion. Now the decisions are expected from the Ministry of Finance.
Oleg Melnichenko also noted that many measures of state support for the social and economic development of the border areas envisaged for the Far Eastern Federal District are already being extended to the subjects of Transbaikalia.
