The result of the work previously fulfilled by the Russian Association of indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East (RAIPON) is legally enshrined. The national standard of the Russian Federation “Conducting research in polar regions. Terms and definitions” was approved. It is reported by the information center of RAIPON.
Thus, specialists and scientists will have to take into account traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples of Russia, when conducting research in the Arctic. It can play a significant role in protection of rights and interests of indigenous peoples of the Russian Federation, when conducting research in the polar regions of the Arctic.
