«We anticipate that the homes that we will build under the relocation will be recouped through the sale on the commercial market part of the housing. For example, in the house we half provided for the resettlement, half the sell. Thus, the project pays for itself. But everything to do with landscaping, utilities, kindergartens, schools, roads and so on, the city will take over. But it’s his duty. Therefore, it is, sorry, not free story. This is a story about the fact that we can create an investment project that will be self-sustaining,» — said Sobyanin.
