YAROSLAVL, August 24. /TASS/. The construction of the railway from the Voronezh region (central European Russia) to the Rostov region (southern Russia) bypassing Ukraine is proceeding ahead of schedule and may be completed ahead of time, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov told a press briefing on Monday.
"To date - on Saturday we summed up the results for the past month - the construction work is proceeding a month ahead of schedule," Bulgakov said. "I hope that , if the work proceeds in such a way, we will, of course, complete the construction ahead of schedule. It’s our task - to build as soon as possible," he added.
In late July Bulgakov, inspecting the process in the construction of the railway, too said the construction was proceeding a month ahead of schedule. The military railway personnel are planning to complete the construction of the railroad bypassing Ukraine in 2017.
