SIMFEROPOL, May 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Development of gas infrastructure in Crimea will start in June and will be completed within a year, Chairman of the Council of Ministers Sergey Aksyonov said on Wednesday.
“Crimea remains 30% without gas supplies,” he said during an opening ceremony in a settlement near Simferopol. “I think we’ll complete the process in a year or a year and two months, and everybody will be supplied.”
Development of gas distribution network would be financed from the federal budget but it was to be hoped, Aksyonov said, that Crimea “will not be dependent long” and will try to straighten out the situation as soon as possible.
Cost estimate documents were now being elaborated to prevent corruption as much as possible, so that “no one gains anything from the budget” and “the entire amount invested is used as intended”, Crimea’s prime minister added.
