The message reads, in part:
“Russia has prioritised the reclamation and harmonious development of its Arctic territories and the preservation of its unique ecosystem in recent years. What is important is that public organisations, volunteers and environmentalists are joining this serious effort.
The project has already yielded real results with volunteers helping to clean up over a hundred hectares on Vilkitsky Island, in the villages of Tiksi and Valyok, and at the Novodvinksaya Fortress, and now shifting their focus to cover more and more areas in the Russian Far North.
I am certain that the Clean Arctic project will continue to expand its horizons and inspire more people to join. I would like to thank you, your colleagues and friends for your initiative, proactive mindset and passion to contribute to the preservation of our natural riches.”
