Sabetta of Yamal does not compete for the first place on the Northern Sea Route with Murmansk or other port or any other Russian region. It was declared by the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitriy Kobylkin on the press-conference in Salekhard.
«This is a Russian corridor, and we are only regions, which are situated in the circumpolar space of this corridor. Regions of Russia definitely cannot compete with each other. Considering events in the world, I have no doubts that the Northern Sea Route will receive a new impulse of development», as Dmitriy Kobylkin explains.
In his opinion, the Northern Sea Route can be «busy»; now the main thing is to make it competitive, open for year-round navigation. «We have no right to speak, which of Russian regions makes bigger or smaller contribution. We all make our contribution to the Northern Sea Route», as he says.
