MOSCOW, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said it necessary to have ongoing financing of the Federal Special programmes.
“I hope the financing will be timely and ongoing,” he told the government on Thursday.
The meeting of the government discussed fulfilment of the federal special programmes and the federal focused investment programme for 2011.
The prime minister said that “last year, we raised budget financing of the federal special programmes: we have planned 927 billion roubles, and another 372 billion roubles are planned for non-programme capital objects.”
Russia worked on 54 special and two state programmes in 2011. The programmes were in “the key spheres like high technologies and infrastructures, demography, education and healthcare, and in national security,” Putin said.
The number of construction sites under the focused investment programme doubled in 2011 to 3,650, he continued. Some of them were regional constructions, and some – municipal. Putin added there are many problems, and “they are not few.” First of all, they are caused by finance discipline, he said.
