The Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev is on his working visit to Sevastopol today. He is going to hold a meeting "on the current state and prospects for the road sector further development in the Crimean Federal District," the press service of the Russia’s Cabinet of Ministers reports.
The meeting is to focus on the construction of a transport passage through the Kerch Strait, the highway Kerch - Feodosiya - Belogorsk - Simferopol - Bakhchysarai - Sevastopol, as well as construction and reconstruction of highways from Simferopol to Evpatoria and from Simferopol to Armyansk.
It is his seventh visit to Crimea after the occupation of the peninsula in March 2014. The last time Prime Minister visited the peninsula on May 22-24 this year.
It was reported earlier that Dmitry Medvedev, Leader of the United Russia party, visited the annexed Crimea to meet with participants of the party’s primary election to select candidates to the State Duma. During that visit he also met with pensioners. When asked about pension indexation, he said, "There's just no money," and called on the Crimean residents to "Hand on in there."
