"The Baikal Harbor": Greenpeace Is Against
16.05.2013 00:22


Greenpeace has forwarded reference to the general director of UNESCO, the chairman of the Committee of the world heritage and the president of the International union of natural preserve. UNESCO offers to put four Russian objects of world heritage into the "World heritage in danger" list. They mention such objects as "Forests of Komi", "Golden mountains of Altai", "Western Caucasus" and "Baikal Lake".


The Committee has taken rough decisions on these objects repeatedly, but Russian authorities ignore the position of international community. The ecologists inform that pulp and paper plant continues operating on Baikal, and it empties noxious waste into the lake in spite of numerous promises of the Russian authorities. Besides, the construction of tourist objects is developing, including mountain skiing complexes in Buryatia on the Bychia river.
