YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, August 22. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev arrived on Saturday in the Kuril Islands as part of his working trip to the country’s Far East.
Medvedev is due to inspect the work of an airport on Iturup, one of the islands in the southern Kurils claimed by Tokyo. The facility was built under the federal target program for 2007-2015 aimed at developing the region. The regular flights there were launched in September 2014.
The prime minister will also visit a cultural and sports center currently under construction in the town of Kurilsk and the Reidovo fish processing plant, built in 2008, which has a capacity of up to 350 tonnes of finished product per day.
Medvedev is scheduled to meet with the participants of an all-Russia youth educational forum called "Iturup," held between August 12 and 24. The event is attended by young scientists, teachers and documentary filmmakers whose interests are linked to the Far East’s development.
