A total of 73.98 billion roubles from this amount will be from the federal budget, it said. Regional budgets will contribute 18.9 billion roubles, and 4.5 billion roubles will come from off-budget sources.
Under the concept, 352 low budget mass sports facilities will be built within this period of time, including for people with disabilities and disabled people. A total of 18.7 billion roubles will be intended for Russian national teams in all kinds of sports on the program of Olympic and Paralympic games.
