The signed resolution reallocates federal budget funding under the Federal Targeted Programme, Transport System Development (2010-2020). The reallocation of budget funding will make it possible to completely finance construction of seaport facilities near the town of Sabetta on the Yamal Peninsula, including the excavation of an access canal in the Gulf of Ob.
