MOSCOW, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Security Council considers it necessary to develop measures to prevent the damage to the environment, the Council’s secretary, Nikolai Patrushev, said.
Speaking at the Security Council session in Ulan Ude on Monday, Patrushev said, “In compliance with report to the Russian President ‘On the State of National Security of the Russian Federation and Measures to Strengthen It’ we drew a conclusion that the state of the environment is dissatisfactory. The environment in the Russian Federation continues to deteriorate.”
“Manmade impact on nature grows. And state environmental supervision is insufficient,” Patrushev said.
He said the Security Council had discussed certain issues of water using and the protection of water resources in Omsk in February. The Yekaterinburg meeting focused on additional measures to ensure environmental security while using processing waste. This issue was a priority one at the meeting in Belgorod, the Security Council secretary said.
“Today we’ll discuss the problem as a whole and determine measures to improve the state’s policy towards ensuring environmental security. We’ll discuss key issues to preserve the unique environmental area - Baikal Lake,” Patrushev said.
