A deputy of the Parliament of Yamal, the president of the Association “Yamal is for descendants” Edward Yaungad claims to enter the UN Permanent Forum (United Nations Organization) on indigenous issues in the period from 2020 to 2023. Information to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” was confirmed by Edward Yaungad. But he refused from any comments, in order, probably, not to frighten good luck.
In total, candidates from eight regions apply for this post from Russia. The Permanent Forum, one of the UN bodies, is busy directly with indigenous issues. Eight of its members are nominated by governments and eight by organizations of indigenous peoples in their regions.
