MOSCOW, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian government analysts have estimated the construction of a Seliger youth camp functioning the year round at 2.5 billion rubles.
According to information by the newspaper Izvestia, such plans have been put forward by Vice-Premier Olga Golodets, who is in charge of social issues. Design specifications and estimates are being prepared by representatives of the Rospatriotcentr (Russian center for civic and patriotic education). Modern buildings provided with heating and all utility supplies — electricity, gas and water are expected to spring up in the territory near Lake Seliger.
Preliminary estimates have it that a youth center there will be able to receive 500 to 800 holidaymakers at any time of the year. Meanwhile, the accustomed summer camp Seliger will keep on.
The need to establish a year-round youth center at Lake Seliger was earlier mentioned by Vladimir Putin. As a result of the meeting with the summer camp participants, the President assigned the government to explore the issue.
Financing proved the main problem in the activation of the project. A Rosmolodyozh (Federal Agency for Youth Affairs) official told Izvestia that an annual budget of the Rospatriotcenter is about two million rubles which will not be enough for the establishment of an infrastructure or its further maintenance.
