In a video message, the president stood for the implementation of new policies to foster a closer association of all States interested in the preservation of forests and other natural ecosystems.

In this regard, he emphasized that determination will help achieve the Paris Agreement goals of reducing the carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere. “Russia remains committed to building a carbon neutral economy by 2060 at the latest”, he stressed.

In that sense, he recalled that around 20 percent of all the world’s forests are in the Eurasian country, a fact that turns it into an important potential actor to absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

Putin added that they reinforce measures for the preservation of forest areas by improving forest management, fighting illegal logging and forest fires.

Likewise, work is done to increase reforestation areas and to boost economic funds for these purposes. The approval of the declaration will be part of one of the key events of the climate summit held within COP26.

More than 100 countries will announce their aspiration to stop deforestation and increase forest area, among which are, in addition to Russia, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, China, the United States, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Japan, countries in Africa, the European Union and Oceania.
