Major projects such as the construction of high speed railway from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod are subject to thorough agreement, said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

He commented on the newspaper «Vedomosti» that the project of construction of VSM to Nizhny Novgorod raised questions about Vladimir Putin and he instructed to discuss it with the government.

In response to a request of journalists to confirm this information Peskov advised «to ask the newspaper, which published these news.»

«Of course, such mega-projects are subject to a very thorough and careful reconciliation agreement, and as changed conditions – whether internal or external, is always more reconciliation», he added.

The section from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod is a part of the pilot phase of the CSM to Kazan. In October, the first Deputy Minister of transport Innokenty Alafinov reported that Russian Railways intends to determine the mechanism of realization of the project until the end of the year.
