REGNUM News Agency (Russia): REGNUM readers call upon Oleg Mitvol to “tell the truth on Sakhalin”

Most questions sent to the online conference with Deputy Head of Rosprirodnadzor (Russian federal nature management watchdog) Oleg Mitvol are about the situation with Sakhalin.

REGNUM readers ask Oleg Mitvol, why media cover only negative features of Sakhalin 2, “most of which are, mildly speaking, exaggerated, starting from dead fish and finishing with the pipeline crossing rivers and seismic dangerous areas.” Authors of such questions stress that activity on Sakhalin 2 Project is assessed by them as populism.

Besides, Mitvol is asked what is done by Rosprirodnadzor to increase its activity in Russian provinces.

Questions come from Moscow, Vladimir, Togliatti, Nizhniy Novgorod, Sakhalin, Karachayevo-Cherkessia, Tver, Birobidzhan, Volgograd, Samara, Kostroma, Stavropol, Altai, Chuvashia and other Russian provinces are being received.

The online conference is to start at 01:00 p.m. Moscow time.
