Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Jan. 7 By Huseyn Hasanov– Trend: "Berkarar" new ferry from Turkmenistan entered Olya port which is located in the southern Astrakhan region, the administration of Astrakhan region of the Russian Federation says.

The vessel transported construction materials for the Astrakhan school. This school is designed to become the national culture center for the Turkmen diaspora living in this region, the statement said.
