The annual 12th international exhibition and fair “Treasures of the North” will take place from the 27th of April to the 1st of May in Moscow.
The big parliamentary hearings will take place within this full-scale event. This information was given by the president of the Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East Grigory Ledkov on the briefing in the news agency “Sever-Press”.
As the head of the association notes, discussion of many interesting topics of the international forum “Indigenous ethnic minorities of the North, Siberia and the Far East of Russia” in Salekhard will be continued on the big parliamentary hearings in Moscow. There is an agreement with the State Duma of the Russian Federation that the list of issues, which will be brought to the hearings, will be formed in March-April. Within the event representatives of bodies of the power and industrial companies once again will meet with indigenous peoples, as he says.
As Grigory Ledkov explains, unfortunately, not everyone, who wishes, can participate in the forum in Salekhard. The application campaign has been already closed; preferences are given to those, with who the association worked during the latest year. But representation of indigenous ethnic minorities and bodies of the power also will be considerable on the parliamentary hearings – about 400 people. Besides, it is planned to conduct the third forum of youth of indigenous ethnic minorities, which also will be in maximum open with big number of participants, as the president of the association says.
