For the first time in Russia serious enough funds of the federal budget were accumulated in the state program on fulfillment of national policy. This information was given by the head of Federal Agency on Affairs of nationalities Igor Barinov on the media scrum within the 8th congress of indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East of the Russia taking place in Salekhard.
“We consider strategically and politically important that a separate subprogram would touch upon exactly indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East of Russia, who live in very difficult, severe conditions, require for increased attention from the side of the regional and federal authorities”, as Igor Barinov underlines. Subsidizing of regional programs is foreseen in the subprogram. “Now we shall generalize the best experience of regions. Activities showing their effectiveness in separate subjects of the Federation, as I hope, with increased financing will be included soon to the state program for fulfillment on the federal level”.
As Igor Barinov notes, unfortunately, the situation with indigenous ethnic minorities in different regions is different. There are financial potential in subjects, where attention is paid to indigenous peoples. For example, the situation in Yamal, Yugra and Yakutia, by the words of the head of the federal agency, can arouse envy even among colleagues abroad. “When last year the project “Nomadic schools” being fulfilled in some regions was presented on the platform of the United Nations Organization at the permanently acting forum of indigenous peoples, my foreign colleagues even were not able to imagine that such things were possible”, as he said.
