Project on industrial development of Urals’ north to stay incomplete

9 February 2009 (14:00)

‘We cannot meet our deadlines with The Industrial Urals-The Polar Urals (a project on the industrial development of the Urals’ north) because some of the tasks laid out in the general plan have been skipped and some of them have been put off until later. We’ll only be able to use 80% of the federal budget subsidies, even though we did use of all the financing provided by the local budgets. This slowing down has to do with the fact that getting the licenses, drawing up the design documents, etc. was only completed way after the deadline,’ Alexei Melgunov (one of the department heads at A. P. Karpinskiy All-Russian Geological Scientific Research Institute) explained at a meeting of a work team responsible for completing the tasks assigned by the Russian Federation President.

‘It’s a pity we have to admit already that the project will only be completed by 80% after all,’ said Deputy Plenipotentiary Representative of Russian Federation President in Ural Federal District Sergey Degtyar.
