In an interview with the Vesti V Subbotu news programme with Sergei Brilyov, Medvedev said, “The projects are not being cancelled despite the budget optimisation.”
“Moreover, if the events develop better that we hope for and if additional funding is provided, we’ll resume a series of infrastructural projects and re-finance programmes, which have been cancelled,” the premier said.
