Railway line project to Sakhalin Island under consideration

Russian authorities are closely considering the possibility of building a railway line to the Far Eastern Sakhalin Island, Russian President Vladimir Putin said. The Russian president added that along with the development of the Northern Sea Route, modernization of the Baikal-Amur Mainline and the Trans-Siberian Railway, and the implementation of other projects, it would “help turn the Far East into one of the most important global logistics hubs.”
According to Vladimir Putin, “as far as ambitious projects are concerned, the Far East provides unique opportunities and competitive advantages.” The Russian president pointed to the tax relief programs, appropriate administrative procedures, the availability of natural resources and low energy tariffs.
