MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. Issues of improving the system of highways in order to develop Russian regions in an integrated manner will be discussed Wednesday at a meeting of the State Council presidium chaired by Russian President Vladimir Putin in the west Siberian city of Novosibirsk, the Kremlin reported.
Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov and Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, who heads the State Council presidium’s working group, will deliver the key reports.
The Russian head of state will also attend the ceremony to unveil the Bugrinsky Bridge - a third bridge across the Ob River in Novosibirsk that will in the future make part of a high-speed highway “Southwestern Bypass” of Novosibirsk that will link the Baikal and Chuisky Trakt federal highways. The construction of the bridge started in February 2010.
In his annual state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly in December 2013, Putin specially stressed that development of Siberia and the Far East should be Russia’s national priority for the entire 21st century.
The Russian leader arrived in Siberia on Tuesday. On his 62nd birthday, Putin took a day off to have a rest in taiga.
