The submission of the instrument of Russia's ratification of the Kyoto protocol to the United Nations gives the green light to this important document
The submission of the instrument of Russia's ratification of the Kyoto protocol to the United Nations gives the green light to this important document, official spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Yakovenko told RIA Novosti. Russia's UN ambassador Andrei Denisov handed the instrument of Russia's ratification of the Kyoto protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan in Nairobi, Kenya's capital. The protocol obliges the sides to reduce greenhouse gas emission in 2008-2012, the period of the document's validity, Mr. Yakovenko said. Separate talks on its prolongation will be launched in 2005, the diplomat added. "The ratification decision was made after a thorough analysis of all factors, above all, with account for the protocol's importance for the development of international cooperation and the fact that the document could come into effect only in case of Russia's ratification," the official spokesman noted. According to him, the Russian side came to a conclusion that "the protocol met Russia's interests because it marked a new stage in the solution of a key global ecological problem." Moreover, this document lets us use the flexible mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol in order to boost extra means for the modernization of Russian economy and improvement of the ecological situation, Alexander Yakovenko stressed.
