Member of the regional headquarters of the popular front noted that the current with the 2007 regional programme was actively developed up until 2010 – it was attended by 56 thousand people. However, since 2011, Federal funding has decreased. As a result, in 2012 on the tour was able to go only about 1 thousand people, and since 2013 to date, the program was attended by about 4.5 thousand people.
Manukyan added that each year more than 30 thousand Kaliningrad residents aged 14 to 30 years leave from his region to EU countries and only slightly more than 10 thousand young people travel to other cities of Russia. They with pleasure would visit other Russian regions, but often travel around the country more expensive than foreign.
"Totally agree with you, this question must be solved. And not only for young people but for all generations. It is a question of coherence of the Russian territory, is the cost of tickets, primarily. We are subsidizing and continue to subsidize. I think that this is not enough. Need to take additional steps to easy and profitable could ride in Kaliningrad, and from Kaliningrad – cheaper than somewhere abroad. Ask the representative of the administration and government connect", – said the head of state.
