The head of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, signed amendments to the Environmental Code of the Republic.
“The law aims to organize work to eliminate objects of accumulated environmental damage. Auditing such objects, assessing the scale, and regulating the process are necessary. The state authorities of the Republic of Bashkortostan in the field of relations related to environmental protection are vested with the corresponding powers. The new edition contains a chapter on inventory, accounting of objects, and the elimination of accumulated harm to the environment,” commented the Chairman of the State Assembly - Kurultai of the Republic, Konstantin Tolkachev.
According to the Speaker of Parliament, an inventory of problematic facilities is being carried out throughout the country.
“Complete, updated information will help plan work to eliminate accumulated harm and current economic activities. State authorities and local governments, legal entities, and individuals will have access to information. The problem of accumulated environmental damage is extremely relevant for our republic. This is a joint work of the federal center, the republic, and municipalities,” noted the speaker of the republican parliament.
