Indigenous people communities to include foreigners

December 07, 2021

The corresponding bill was submitted to the State Duma by the government.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The communities of the indigenous peoples of the North will be able to include foreigners from those who permanently reside in the territory. This provision is contained in the bill submitted to the State Duma by the Russian government.

The law also proposes to introduce a condition according to which the number of other ethnic communities’ representatives in the total number of members of the community cannot be more than a third.

In addition, a ban is introduced on ‘dual’ membership in communities and mandatory registration of participants. This should ensure the completeness and reliability of the information provided for the registration of persons belonging to small peoples.

To realize the social and economic rights of small peoples, their relatives can be equated to community members. The rights and obligations of such persons, including the procedure and nature of their participation in the economic activities of the community, will be determined by the charter. This should have a positive effect, for example, in determining the volume of extraction of biological resources by the community.
