(Itar-Tass, 11 December 2010) -- ST. PETERSBURG - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has signed a resolution to set up a special structure to develop the new national park Russian Arctica. The premier said about it at the 14th congress of the Russian Geographic Society. The work of the structure will be aimed at preservation of unique natural complexes, ecological education of citizens and organisation of conditions for civilised tourism, Putin said. The premier believes it can make a serious contribution to carry out the tasks, especially since nature saving issues are again among priorities after a long period, and the environmental protection commission has taken its historic place and has started working actively, the prime minister noted.
