Yekaterinburg has every chance to become the capital of Eurasia,
Yekaterinburg has every chance to become the capital of Eurasia, holds Alexander Tatarkin, the director of the Institute of Economics of the Urals Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Governor of the Sverdlovsk region Eduard Rossel on May 31 expressed the idea of making Yekaterinburg the centre of the continent and setting up a Eurasian court here. There are many prerequisites for this, Tatarkin told Itar-Tass on Thursday. “Yekaterinburg, historically, happens to be in the epicentre of Eurasian ties,” he said. “This regards transport, too, as virtually all routes from the West to the East and from the North to the South pass through Yekaterinburg. In addition, our city is traditionally regarded as the capital of the Urals, the region that connects two parts of the world.” Moreover, the scientist believes Moscow should be gradually relieved of federal and interstate structures. “This actually is being done already, for the Assembly of legislative bodies of the CIS is now based in St Petersburg, and the Arbitration Court of the CIS is based in Minsk,” he said. Tatarkin also believes it is reasonable to form a Eurasian court in Yekaterinburg. “Our Eurasian Arbitration Court has a high status not only in Russia but also in other countries of the continent,” he said. “We have a strong juridical school, and many officials of high juridical bodies of the country graduated from the Urals Juridical Academy.” Yekaterinburg rates third among Russian regions for the level of economic development. It has a population of 1.3 million, rating fifth for population and being the most compact of Russian cities. It is the venue of the consulates-general of the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Czech Republic, Kyrgyzstan, the consulate of Bulgaria, the mission of the Belarussian embassy, the mission of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, trade missions, cultural and information centres of Hungary, Finland, and other countries
