Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the allocation of 1.8 billion rubles for the reconstruction of the Voronezh Circus. The document was published on the official Internet portal of legal information on July 2.

According to the text of the decree, the design works will begin in 2021. 75 million rubles will be spent on the survey. The rest of the money will be distributed into once-a-year tranches until 2024.

The attraction of federal funds for the reconstruction of the Voronezh Circus was discussed in December 2019 at a meeting of the Voronezh Region Governor with one of the State Duma deputies. The Head of the Region said that the regional authorities were ready to invest in the improvement of the territory near the circus.
