City government wants to share Pulkovo

City government wants to share Pulkovo The merger of the federal state joint-stock company Pulkovo and the state transportation company Rossiya has been stalled. On Friday the 16th of January a decision was to be taken by the interdepartmental commission overseeing the merger whether to give the St. Petersburg city administration the property complex Pulkovo. The idea of giving the Pulkovo airport to the city administration was proposed by the city vice-governor of investment, Yurii Molchanov. The idea was presented on the 14th of January at a meeting of the nterdepartmental commission, with participation of representatives from the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Property Relations of the Russian Federation, and the management of the President of the Russian Federation, as well as the federal state joint-stock company Pulkovo and the city administration of St. Petersburg.

The interdepartmental commission must work out joint proposals to introduce changes in the resolution of the government of the Russian Federation to merge the two airlines. The essence of the offers is that before any merger in the federal joint-stock company Pulkovo, there must be a property complex singled out where the two terminals of the Pulkovo airport will go as well as part of the on-land infrastructure of the company. On the base of this property complex, a state unitary enterprise will be formed, the management of which will be given to the city committee of management of state property. At the end of December 2003 the governor of St. Petersburg, Valentina Matvienko, sent to the government of the Russian Federation a letter with such a proposal. The order of the government of the Russian Federation on the merger of Rossiya and Pulkovo has already been prepared. The order calls for the complete association of the federal state joint-stock company Pulkovo to Rossiya. In the end however, the state transport company may get only Pulkovo’s aircraft, and not its airport.
