Sanctions against Russia in general and the Urals in particular

Russian President Vladimir Putin made it clear that in 2023 Russia will solve the problem with the import and export of goods. This will happen with the opening of the country’s largest commercial port in Murmansk, the first in decades, experts comment on Putin’s June 20 meeting with Murmansk Region Governor Andrey Chibis. The Arctic capital will become a sea gate for Russia, which opens the way to both Europe and Asia, experts explain.

Putin assessed the situation in the region as satisfactory already in the first seconds of the meeting. “The gross domestic product is growing. Even despite the Arctic, agriculture is growing, construction. In general, everything is fine, ”the president said, but at the same time noted that unemployment in the region is slightly higher than the national average.

Chibis agreed that there is something to work on. And in the light of large-scale Arctic projects, the prospects for reducing unemployment and further investment growth are quite large. The Murmansk governor said that the largest projects and production did not stop even during the coronavirus pandemic. The program “Arctic Hectare” is working, according to which anyone can get land for business development: 1.7 thousand people have already done this, another 600 applications are being processed.

The issue of gasification remains acute for the region. “More precisely, oil dependence. It is necessary to get away from this version,” President Putin corrected the governor.

Chibis accepted this remark and noted that gasification would save the residents of the region from large utility bills. “Gasification will make it possible to reduce household payments by up to 30 percent. This is essential for people, it hits their pockets,” said Chibis.

In addition, this will encourage the development of industry and the agricultural sector, the governor said. The largest, politically and economically important project in the Murmansk region is the construction of a new seaport, Lavna. According to Chibis, this will be the first new port in Russia in many decades. It is scheduled to be handed over in 2023.

In order for the object to work at full capacity, it is necessary to complete the laying of the railway to it. “The project is ready for 56 percent, for 90 percent – the readiness of the roadbed, 27 billion has already been invested … By the end of 2023, we plan to complete the first 18 million tons of the railway [грузов] run. If this project is fully completed, the Murmansk port can transship at least 80 million tons by 2030. In general, Murmansk is becoming a powerful logistics hub. The most important thing is that the depths allow, and the port does not freeze,” the governor said.

Putin called the project promising. “Prospects for development are right there, of course. Everything is great there,” the president said.

Building up political and economic opportunities in the Arctic zone is a strategic task for Russia in the framework of the confrontation with the West, Sergey Belokonev, scientific director of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Mass Communications of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, explained to URA.RU. “It is no secret that, in addition to the territory of the former USSR, Ukraine, the West is actively aiming to press us in the Arctic as well. Therefore, the project for the construction of transport infrastructure in the Murmansk region is of great importance, and the president pays special attention to this, ”the political scientist noted.

Under the current political conditions, the western entrance to and exit from Russia through the ports of St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad are closed, explains Mikhail Blinkin, director of the Institute for Transport Economics and Transport Policy at the Higher School of Economics. Only the northern and Far Eastern ports remain, and partly the southern ones, but there are also problems with logistics. “In fact, the exit to the big world will go along the Northern Sea Route. The Murmansk region is key on this path.

To the right – there will be a road to Asia, to the left – to Europe. Murmansk will become the sea gates of Russia. In “peaceful” times, this was only actively discussed, but in the current force majeure conditions, there is no time for talking. For the country, this is no longer a luxury, but a necessity,” the expert is convinced.

The discussion at the meeting between Putin and Chibis on the construction of a new Murmansk commercial port shows that Russia needs to develop alternative transport routes, Boris Komotsky, a member of the State Duma Committee on the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, believes. According to him, in the future this will help to avoid any situations related to attempts to block Russian territories.

“We see the example of Kaliningrad, when the Lithuanians took quasi-military actions. Care must be taken to provide logistics that do not fall under anyone’s restrictions. The Northern Sea Route is an important strategic and economic prospect for the country: sea transportation remains the cheapest, and here we will be able to pass through our own territory. This will strengthen the sovereignty of Russia: if you do not look back, whether or not you will be allowed to transfer your goods, this is sovereignty, ”summed up the parliamentarian.
