As Igor Barinov notes, the advisory council will include representatives of all 28 regions, where indigenous ethnic minorities live, also representatives of the Russian parliament and resource-extracting companies. “The council should create the balance, which will allow developing our industry on one hand and will keep culture, traditions and territory of traditional residence of indigenous ethnic minorities on another hand”, he explained.
