Till the end of the year the regional department on affairs of indigenous peoples of the North plans to bring in the law about primordial environment of indigenous peoples of the North for scrutinizing to the Legislative Assembly. This information was given by the director of the department Inna Sotruyeva on the press conference in Salekhard.
According to her information, these changes will specify some notions touching upon activity of the structure on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North.
Also it is supposed to legislate budgetary obligations of Yamal for preservation of primordial environment of indigenous peoples. In particular, as Inna Sotruyeva notes, it is supposed to legislate expenditure obligations in purchase of sets of choums (a choum is a nomadic dwelling similar to a tepee), assistance in rendering of medical help and energy supply, in giving of monthly allowances for nomads conducting traditional way of life and busy in traditional branches of economy, for targeted education of management personnel and stimulation of economic activity.
