§ 10. Mr. Gordon Marsden
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what discussions her Department has had about programmes to support the development of civil society and to combat social problems in Kaliningrad. 
§ Clare Short
The focus of DFID's bilateral programme in Russia is at the federal level and in two partner oblasts-Leningrad and Nizhny Novgorod. Kaliningrad is not one of the partner oblasts. However, we are major contributors to the European Commission's TACIS programme, which does work in Kaliningrad.
