    Interesting project. Connection of the Trans-Siberian Railway with Korea and Japan. I don't know how much priority is the plan?

    Japanese went on record that the moment Sakhalin is connected to mainland Russia they will start building connection between Sakhalin and Japan

    Russia is definitely planning to do their part for their own use so we will see

    Don't think they'll do anything until a settlement on the Kurils is reached

    Personally think it would make more sense to simply make it go through South Korea... not 100% sure why it needs to reach London either....

    Building a bridge from Japan to Russia through contested islands does not sound like a great idea do they have enough infrastructure in the north island of their country to justify a rail link?

    Sakhalin is not contested.

    There is a large oil and gas project in the south of Sakhalin and also big fishing facilities. Lot of potential for growth. And the connection between it an Japan would be paid for by the japanese taxpayer. That leaves "just" the investment in the northern bridge to Russia.
