Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the Russian Ministry of Transport to furnish the airfield on the Iturup Island with all-weather navigational equipment, the government website reports on Tuesday.

"Dmitry Medvedev instructed the Russian Ministry of Transport jointly with the Finance Ministry and the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) to ensure retrofitting of the Iturup aerodrome with the navigation equipment for all-weather take-off and landing of aircraft, and to report the work execution within two months," the order says.
