The president of the Association of the World Reindeer Herders Sergey Kharyuchi approved transfer from private reindeer herders of Yamal into owners of peasant farm holdings. After the sitting of the Board of the Association in Salekhard, where this idea had been expressed, in an interview with journalists the famous politician expressed confidence that this practice would be applied in Yamal.
“Due to complexity of passing of the law on reindeer husbandry at the federal level, it is difficult to wait for clear weather in this matter”, as Sergey Kharyuchi said. – “At this stage, use of such form as a peasant farm holding is the most suitable variant. It is important for us to give the status to a nomadic enterprise in order the entire package of state support would be applicable for this tribal collective. In fact, they are the same peasants as ones, who work in the central part of the country. We are accustomed to the stereotype that a peasant should only grow bread and other crops. But peasants also raise cattle. And among white snows our people are busy with pasturing of their reindeer. I think that the term “a peasant farm holding” is quite applicable to them”.
According to the president of the Association of the World Reindeer Herders, lawyers will check all the details to make this practice fit into the current legislation. And the Russian center for development of reindeer husbandry, which is being opened in Salekhard, first of all, will extend this practice to other northern regions of the country.
