PETROPAVLOVSK KAMCHATSKY, June 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia has done much in implementing priority national projects, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
“I will say that we have done very much. Not everywhere though. I think agriculture has really changed over the past 5-7 years. Anyone who works in our agricultural industry can say that,” Medvedev said in an interview with Vladimir Pozner on Channel One on Monday, June 4.
“As for housing, this is a topic that is in fact very complex. We started off when there were 7 million square meters of dilapidated housing. Now it’s 10 [million square metres] because it’s growing. As we solve the problem, a part of housing becomes dilapidated. Second, people are never completely satisfied with their housing. This is a need we try to meet all our life. But we have the mechanisms in motion,” he said.
Speaking of national projects, Medvedev said they are regularly dealt with by the relevant structures, the prime minister and the president. Funding for some of them has been provided under state programmes. “We are talking tens of billions of roubles. This topic is not only not dead, it lives on. It has probably become more routine, but that’s normal because it is six years or so already,” he said.
