MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a resolution to ensure fulfillment of Russia's obligations under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants of May 22, 2001, the Russian cabinet said on its website on Saturday.

The Natural Resources Ministry sets up a coordinating centre to exchange information to cut or eliminate production, use and discharge of pollutants.

Persistent organic pollutants are widely used in industry. They are byproducts in technological processes or specially produced, such as pesticides.

The Stockholm Convention bans or limits the use of some chemicals.
