Putin promised to instruct Russian Railways General Director Oleg Belozerov to assess the connectivity of Russian regions by the railway network. Russian Railways plans to launch two new tourist routes from Moscow “The existing railway line leading to Yoshkar-Ola is indeed a dead-end, single-track and non-electrified. Today there is a need to consider the issue of extending the Zeleny Dol (Tatarstan) – Yaransk (Kirov region) railway line to Kotelnich station to close the gap in the North-South railway corridor and connect the northern and southern railway branches of the Trans-Siberian Railway along the Kazan-Yoshkar-Ola-Kirov line, taking into account the Strategy for the development of railway transport in the Russian Federation until 2030, ” The press service emphasized that “Mari El, Tatarstan and the Kirov region are interested in the development of railway communication, however, the participation of Russian Railways is necessary, since the issues of construction and electrification of railways are specific, and the development of interregional railway transportation refers to the powers Russian Railways.
