On the 15th of February the regional coordinator of the project “Rossiyskoye Selo” (“Russian rural area”) Timur Akchurin and the head of the peasant farm holding “Rodnik” Kuzma Vozelov discussed issues of development of taiga and fenced reindeer husbandry. It is planned to fulfill the project on the territory of Shuryshkarskiy district. A land plot has already been assigned to the farmer, and the business project has been drawn up with support of members of the party and the Union of Yamal reindeer herders. Employees of the scientific center for study of the Arctic conducted geobotanical studies on the land plot allocated to the entrepreneur. According to their estimates, it will be possible to pasture about 200 reindeer there.
Timur Akchurin suggested Kuzma Vozelov to become the coordinator of the project “Russkoye Selo” in Shuryshkarskiy district. Further the farmer plans to develop tourism, to be busy with reproduction of vegetation cover, to collect wild-growing plants on the land plot.
“In the case of successful implementation of the project on development of taiga and fenced reindeer husbandry on the land plot, this practice will serve as good experience for its distribution to other municipalities and reindeer-herding subjects of the Russian Federation. Moreover, the project is relevant in the light of industrial development in the regions of the country being included in the Arctic zone”, Timur Akchurin said in the interview to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”.
According to Kuzma Vozelov, location of the allocated land is good for farming and development of tourism. It is situated 70 km away from the settlement Muzhi and 20 km away from the settlement Shuryshkary. Nearby there is a winter road and a river with fish. Now the farmer is busy with building of the fence and supplying of feed that he collects in taiga.
