Plans to connect the Moscow region to the Moscow metro are due to proceed in 2016 with most of the money having already been allocated, the Governor of the Moscow Region Andrei Vorobyov told Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Friday. Vorovyov said that the Ministry of Transport had disbursed 150 million rubles ($2.6 million; €2.3 million), while the region itself had pledged the same amount. Governor Vorobyov also reported that "intervention mortgages" were being issued again after a spike in interest rates thanks to a government intervention. Apart from that, cancer treatment received over 10 billion rubles ($175 million; €158 million), which will be used to build new diagnostic centres.
