This year, 53 unauthorized landfills will be liquidated in Russia. 22.7 billion rubles will be allocated from the budget for these purposes. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko at a meeting with Mikhail Mishustin on Monday.
Among others, this year the reclamation works of the Yadrovo landfill with an area of more than 30 hectares in the Moscow region will be completed. By the end of 2024, the authorities promise to recover 191 landfills.
“The measures that we have planned in the national project must be implemented in a timely manner and in their entirety,” Mishustin instructed the government.
Last year, thanks to the federal Clean Country project (it is included in the national Ecology project), 19 landfills were liquidated in Russia, occupying an area of 140 hectares. Landfills were removed in Lipetsk, Kaliningrad, Samara, Tver, Sverdlovsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Leningrad, Kirov, Kaluga, Chuvashia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Chechnya, Ingushetia and Crimea regions. In total, 58 landfills in Russia have already been removed under this project. According to Abramchenko, this has improved the quality of life of more than 10 million people.
At the meeting with the prime minister, they also discussed preparations for the Future Games sports competition, which will take place in February-March 2024 in Kazan. More than 2,000 people representing more than 200 teams from different countries will participate in the nine-day competition. The program includes 16 technological disciplines. The athletes will compete in virtual disciplines and on real sports fields: this is what is called phygital sports.
5.2 billion rubles will be allocated from the budget for the preparation and holding of competitions.
