Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev holds a meeting in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on the socioeconomic development of the Sakhalin Region

“I consider it extremely important for members of the government of the Russian Federation to visit the Kuril Islands. We have done this in the past, and naturally, this practice will be continued by the new government. The reasons for this are obvious: this is a very important part of the Sakhalin Region and of our Russian land as a whole.”
