The first site of the high speed line will pass to Nizhny Novgorod. Who could lobby the project if the Ministry of Finance against? Photo: Artem Geodakyan / TASS the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev coordinated construction of the site of the Moscow — Kazan high speed line to Nizhny Novgorod. According to Vedomosti, VSM Moscow cost — Nizhny Novgorod will make 621 billion rubles (200 billion rubles have to provide the budget and the Russian Railway). In case of success the branch can be prolonged up to Kazan. The report of the Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov supervising transport is signed and sent to the president, the representative of the government confirmed. The fate of the project depends on Vladimir Putin's decision. If the authorities decide to continue VSM to Kazan, the price of the highway will grow almost to 2 trillion rubles. Considering claims of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation to the project who could lobby it? The director of Institute of the strategic analysis of FBK Igor Nikolaev argues on it: — The project, certainly, is necessary to regions.
