We are active and creative people from the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) fighting for the ecology of the Native Land.
The Office of Rosprirodnadzor in the Republic of Sakha estimated the damage caused by «Alrosa» company to the Vilyui River in the summer of 2018 in the amount of 22.1 billion rubles. «Alrosa» received an order to eliminate the violations found.
But despite this, due to the accident at the dam of «Alrosa», in November 2018, the level of the Vilyui River downstream increased. An orange-brown water color and a sharp metallic smell are noted in the Suntar District.
Our main requirements:
1. To provide for a set of measures to prevent river pollution by mining companies.
2. Give the status of a specially protected natural area to the Lena river basin.
3. Create an environmental fund from payments made by subsoil users, as an environmental fee (special taxes) in the amount of at least 1% of their revenue, to restore the ecology of the regions where they mine mineral resources.
