MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. The Russian government has approved a resolution on an ecological monitoring of a unique ecological system of Lake Baikal, the Cabinet said on its official website. The resolution was signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
The document contains instructions on monitoring a unique ecological system of Lake Baikal, taking into account its unique environment, specified ecological zones and a special regime of economic activity on this territory which was specified by law.
