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.
