MOSCOW, April 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian government will provide subsidies for organizing transportation of passengers and freight to and from Crimea, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Monday at a regular meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.
He admitted the acuteness of the problem of transport communications between mainland Russia and the Crimean Federal District.
“The high season (in the Crimean resort cities - ITAR-TASS) begins soon, and today we will examine a draft resolution on granting precisely targeted subsidies from the federal budget and doing inter-budgetary transfers,” Medvedev said.
He said he meant transportation to and from the Crimean capital Simferopol in the first place, reconstruction of the airport in Simferopol, upgrading of the ferryboat service in Kerch, and ensuring proper operations of the Crimean railway.
