Settlements that are located at a distance of more than 70 km from the nearest point of connection to the communication network of the operator of universal communication services and / or in territories with difficult geological conditions for cable laying, which fell into the quota for 2023, may not be included in the List and transferred to subsequent periods by the decision of the Russian Ministry of Digital Development due to high economic costs and long periods of construction of the necessary communication infrastructure.
