Our task is to make it a truly global, competitive transport artery. Pay attention, in Soviet times, more actively used than we did in the previous. But we will increase and we will reach new frontiers. There is no doubt about it, "Vladimir Putin stressed.

"We will create all conditions for people to live comfortably here, come here to increase the population of the Far Eastern regions," the ministry quotes the president as saying that the cultural and infrastructure development of the Far Eastern Federal District has been identified as the most important policy directions in the East of Russia. In particular, great importance is attached to the development of digital communication technologies, by 2024 in the Russian Federation there will be practically universal quick access to the Internet. "Construction of fiber-optic communication lines will be completed to the majority of settlements with a population of more than 250 people, and remote, small settlements of the Far North, Siberia and the Far East will have stable access through a network of Russian satellites," Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
