Yesterday in the Kremlin has passed next big a press - conference of president Vladimir Putin. 1364 journalists have taken part in it from regions of Russia and other states. It was possible to ask a question to the president and our fellow countryman - to the correspondent of the seaside newspaper.

Vasily AVCHENKO, the editor of department of public problems and a policy of the newspaper Vladivostok :

- Vladimir Vladimirovich very much stirs me a problem which, in my opinion, already became political. It is a problem of outflow of the population from the Far East Russia. I know that the government program on resettlement of compatriots has been some time ago developed, and attraction of human resources in depressive regions of Eastern Siberia and the Far East was one of its purposes just. However today it is already obvious that at preservation of present approaches to the decision of this problem to the Far East nobody will go - here the expensive to live, too

nekomfortno to live and few possibilities for self-realisation. The question also consists in it: How all - taki the state is going to struggle with outflow of the population from the Far East? .

Vladimir PUTIN, the president of Russia:

- This problem stirs not only you, but also many citizens of the country. And me stirs very much. Really, we observe population depopulation, depopulation of these territories of Eastern Siberia and the Far East. Taken measures on this problem yet do not give due result. I constantly come back to this subject throughout almost last five - six years. Across the Far East as you know, there is a development program, federal target programs. We plan carrying out of large international actions, including ATES. It will be, by the way, in Vladivostok. We have planned big enough federal resources on development of territories. First of all, it concerns infrastructures. But, of course, the citizens living in the Far East, should be economically put in same, and can, even in the best position, than living in the European part of the Russian Federation. In Russia such steps which not only kept the population were always undertaken, and did abiding there people not simply comfortable, but favourable from the economic point of view. It is a question, first of all, of tariffs for the electric power, for heat, for transport. And as though nerynochno it looked, but it is necessary to go on certain preferences. I while will stop, but in this direction we think. And corresponding steps to create such comfortable situation for the citizens living in the Far East, will be undertaken.
