MOSCOW, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - Regional programs will provide 58 billion rubles to the environmental protection, but the situation remains tense, secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said.
“Over 30 regional programs have been formed to protect the environment. Under the programs, over 58 billion rubles will be provided to implement the programs,” Patrushev said on Monday.
At the same time, he said the situation “remains tense”.
“According to the Federal Service for Supervision of National Resources, the total emission of toxic substances reaches over 20% of all emissions. Such cities as Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Novosibirsk and Kemerovo play a leading role by air pollution concentration. “Norislk is among the tenth most pollutant cities of the world!” Patrushev said.
“The Siberian heat-and-power complex and enterprises of heavy and mining industries make the biggest contribution to the large-scale pollution of the environment, including the water resources,” he said, adding, “This is the common problem for the country.”
