VLADIVOSTOK, November 22 (Itar-Tass) — Eastern Military District commander Admiral Konstantin Sidenko said Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu decided, at a conference at the Pacific Fleet headquarters, to transfer 382 military compounds into ownership of the Primorye Territory.
"At the conference chaired by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, a decision was made to hand over all the military compounds which are not used in the interests of the Defense Ministry to municipalities. The decision has been made; it will be implemented by yearend, and all the compounds will be handed over gratuitously," Admiral Sidenko said.
He added that all the land plots where housing construction projects had been launched would be added to Vladivostok's municipal property. "It's a very important decision the defense minister and the first deputy prime minister have made," the commander underlined.
"As of today, we're transferring into municipal ownership 382 military compounds in their present condition," he noted.
Primorye Territory governor Vladimir Miklushevsky added that "aside from the compounds, the Defense Ministry is handing over the land plots that have not been used for the purpose of defense and security. In all, there are more than 100,000 hectares of such land, including 6,000 hectares in Vladivostok. The city needs this land badly. The decision is certainly historical for the Primorye Territory," Miklushevsky said.
