The proposal to organize the Russian Days of Protection from Environmental Hazards was made by Kuzbass environmentalists in 1993. Russia has a federal legal system with environmental matters regulated at both the federal and regional level. At the federal level, this takes the form of codes, laws and subordinate regulations approved by the government and other state bodies. These are supplemented further at the regional level.
The Russian Federation is a country with over 144 million inhabitants. Over the last 100 years, the temperature increased on average by 1.29 °С.1 The effects of climate change are most prominent in the Arctic region, where the coverage of the sea ice has been reducing by 9% every decade and the river runoff has substantially increased. For example, the runoff of the Volga river increased by 15–40%.
