RIA Novosti was told about this in the administration of this Russian region situated in Eastern Siberia.
The Turkish company is building a theater-concert center and housing facilities in the area's main city, Khanty-Mansiisk. It is planned to build also such a water park as in Moscow here but the construction has not begun yet. According to director of the construction department of the area administration Georgy Natalushi, the fate of this project will be determined after the investigation into the causes of the disaster in Moscow is completed.
