08.10.2014 Border Crossing Post at Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island

A meeting, aiming to determine the location of the border crossing post between China and Russia, was held in Fuyuan, Northeast China Heilongjiang Province, on September 29. Among the participants of the meeting were representatives of Heilongjiang Province Border Crossing Commete and a delegation from the Regional Border Directorate for the Far Eastern Federal District. After two years of negotiations, the location of the border crossing overland post was finally determined. The border crossing post for passengers and transit cargo will be built at Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island, located in the suburbs of Khabarovsk. As experts say, the construction of the post will stimulate the increase in the flow of tourists and transit cargo between China and Russia.

The border crossing post is expected to be widely used not only by Chinese people, but also by the citizens of Khabarovsk, Siberia and the whole Russian Far East.

Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island, which had been a problematic question between Russia and China for a long time, was divided into two parts between two countries in 2008. The eastern part of the island, located close to Khabarovsk belongs to Russia, while the western part is owned by China, Heilongjiang Province.

Nowadays the industrial and recreational infrastructure is been rapidly developed at both sides of the island. The construction of a bridge, connecting Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island with the mainland (Oshinovaya-Rechka village , the suburbs of Khabarovsk)  was finished on October 23 last year.
