“Since 1990s, here in Russia it is the regional authorities – primarily in the Arctic regions, in the Far East, and namely the governors and the legislative bodies – that bear the burden of work, help and cooperation”.


Grigory Ledkov,

President, Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia, and the Far East (RAIPON)
