On March 5, 2019, in view of the grant contract to be signed, the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg “Marine Façade” was visited by representatives of the Managing Authority of the South-East Finland – Russia Cross Border Cooperation Programme 2014 – 2020 (hereinafter referred to as the Program) for 2014–2020. During the meeting, V.A. Kashirin, Director General of “PP of SPb MF” PLC, presented a large-scale infrastructure project for the reconstruction of the checkpoint at the State Border of the Russian Federation in the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg “Marine Façade”. Creating conditions for year-round freight and passenger ferry communication in the seaport of the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg “Marine Façade” with the possibility of accepting and processing freight vehicles transported by ferries is the Program's top priority.
