With this initiative, the Minister of the Far East Alexander Galushka:

Aleskandr Galushka, Minister of Development of the Far East informed journalists that residents of Ukraine could become personnel reserves in the advanced development of the Russian Far East territories.

According to Aleskandr Galushka, the Russian Far East should be developed at a faster pace attracting large-scale investments. But one of the limiting factors is a shortage of manpower. “The Ministry in discussions with experts considered such options long before the events now taking place in Ukraine” – said Aleskandr Galushka.

Minister Aleskandr Galushka explained upon which assumptions the position of the Ministry is grounded. He mentioned that “while the GDP per capita in Ukraine has not reached even Soviet levels, that one must proceed not from local acute events, but from long-term sustainable trends related to Ukraine.”

“The obvious advantage of attracting citizens of Ukraine (compared to citizens of other countries  – ITAR-TASS) is that the Russian Far East region would have people without language, mental and cultural barriers,” the Minister clarified.

[The last paragraph of this article continues to make Russian propaganda claims about Ukrainians crossing the border into Russia in large numbers which has already been disproved many times by Western and Ukrainian media journalists and can easily be seen by anyone anywhere to be false simply by monitoring the online live web cams at the border from the border webpages].
