Money in the Fund for the resettlement of dilapidated housing was initially directed, in my opinion, in the amount of 200 billion, something like that, after the sale of assets of YUKOS. After YUKOS was sold, implemented, there were several projects on the basis of the money: the construction of the bridges, which were built in Soviet times, since the 80-ies, and they were not completed, were abandoned, the bridges over our major rivers, and the resettlement of people from dilapidated housing. Here there was the money. And still partially on the establishment of the company “RUSNANO”, – Putin said.
