Traditions of long nomadic reindeer-herding travels, unfortunately, were lost in majority of northern regions of Russia. In the opinion of Leonid Khudi, in Yamalskiy district they were kept in full amount, in much owing to the acting program of social support of reindeer herders. At the present time help is rendered here because of the last year loss of reindeer. Compensations from the reserve fund for lost animals make from 24 to 70 thousand rubles. The opportunity to compensate losses of reindeer for those, who stay in the branch, is being scrutinized. Help in purchase of a house can be given to those reindeer herders, who lost very many reindeer. According to the words of the chairperson of the board, it is planned to solve many questions till the 4th of April. After the district gathering of reindeer herders in Yar-Salye the nomads will go to summer reindeer pastures.
As Leonid Khudi notes, the participants of the conference asked questions to chiefs of specialized departments about situation of women working in the branch, about subsidizing of products for private reindeer herders. Especially they focused attention on necessity to subsidize venison, which is sold beyond the limits of the region. Now its amount grew.
