These amounts are fixed in theamendments introduced by this Government Decision in the “list ofconstruction sites and expenditures for Federal government needs in 2006financed as part of state capital investments allocated for implementation ofthe 2006 Federal Targeted Investment Program”. Originally, it was plannedthat this line of the Federal Budget (02 053 0407 1020000 214 310) in the amountof RUB 500 million would be spent on the shared (with regions) construction offorest roads, but in early 2006 the plans to use these funds for forest roadconstruction were already abandoned. As a result, RUB 452 million would be spenton the equipment for Avialesookhrana and other units of the Federal ForestryAgency.  It remains unclear what the remaining RUB 48 million will beallocated for.  <Translated from Russian by A.Kushlin>
