MOSCOW, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The tasks of the development of the Moscow transport hub will be fulfilled by 2018, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with RBK-TV channel on Wednesday.
“All the tasks for the development of the Moscow transport hub will be fulfilled around 2018, and there will be an increase, but I would not give indexes yet,” he said.
Medvedev believes it is necessary to draw on the National Wealth Fund precisely for the development of the infrastructure, for road construction. “Ours is a unique country and this is the source of both its advantages and problems,” he noted. “We must invest into the infrastructure for the country being a whole,” he said.
“I give much thought as to how the money from the National Wealth Fund should be invested,” Medvedev said. “It is not unlimited and cannot be stretched indefinitely,” Medvedev said.
“I believe investment must be made into the infrastructure,” he said.
“I follow what citizens, entrepreneurs write,” the premier acknowledged. “They ask why invest into the Central Ring Road, into the Moscow transport hub”. “The reason is that the hub handles up to 50 percent of the country’s transport flows,” he noted. “This is not very good but European part of the country has the overwhelming part of the country’s population. So we will certainly invest into the hub’s development.” he said.
“This does not mean that we will overlook Siberia and the Far East,” he said. “A considerable sum, about 300 billion roubles out of the 450 billion roubles that are to be invested into the infrastructure will go to the development of the Baikal Amur Mainline, the Trans-Siberian Railway and everything that will make for transshipment of freight to the territories of Far Eastern countries and remote Russian areas,” Medvedev said. “There are many good plans considering these areas,” Medvedev said.
