Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a resolution on granting to Russia’s natural gas giant Gazprom the right to use the Khandinsky area of federal subsoil resources in the Irkutsk region for the prospecting and production of hydrocarbons, the Russian government press service reported on Tuesday.
