Stop Mining

⚡The government intends to sacrifice nature for the sake of the interests of the Industrialists. Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov instructed to work out amendments, suspending a number of environmental regulations to support industrial companies.

In mid-April, the Russian Union of Industrialists and entrepreneurs sent a letter to the Russian Government with a proposal to suspend environmental monitoring procedures and significant environmental regulation in connection with the epidemic of the coronavirus.

What measures has supported the government and what will be in 2020:
▫Prolongs term of consideration of documents in the framework of environmental impact assessment.
▫Discuss the evaluation of the impact of companies ' activities on the environment will now take place without public hearings.
▫Time for compensatory reforestation and afforestation increased from one year to three years.

If the order is executed, the measures will be in effect until the end of 2020, but may be extended.

We sent a letter to Mikhail Mishustin with a request to listen to the opinions of environmental organizations and concerned citizens and to refrain from weakening environmental legislation.

Have demand from the Russian Government to prevent the abolition of the environmental requirements under the pretext of combating the crisis. Sign the petition:
