The Three Whales: Science, Nature, Humans
Of course, the time has come to make decisions. Not an easy time. But these are precisely the times when decisions are made that will give us a perspective, that will allow us to look not only under our feet, but a little bit forward. Everything has to do with the development of our country, with health, and with demography

The Three Whales: Science, Nature, Humans
There is a lot of talk today that ecology, biodiversity, climate are very important... We have been cheated twice already: when we signed the Kyoto Protocol and when we signed the Paris Agreement... If we invest today in conservation technologies, and we know that somewhere by mid-century technologies will completely change, they will be green and non-toxic, but they do not exist yet. Just to take serious decisions within the state to create a ten-year programme that can help us restore nature... will allow us to identify both our advantages and our problems

Your Money And/Or Your Life: The Lack of a Freedom of Choice
For people, the environment, clean water, and clean air, which are essential to life on Earth, is not a priority. They are somewhere in the top ten. I know for sure that as soon as people start talking about this and what is most important for the future of our children and grandchildren, we’ll have a completely different situation. And business will ensure the creation of a clean environment in production, and people won’t be throwing plastic and garbage everywhere left and right

Your Money And/Or Your Life: The Lack of a Freedom of Choice
People’s responsibility to nature, including businessmen, should be critical today. Raising ‘eco-sapiens’ is a choice in favour of people who will have a different attitude towards the most important wealth. This is also a very laborious process

Your Money And/Or Your Life: The Lack of a Freedom of Choice
In this situation, it is imperative to invest in sports. Today, this isn’t just goals, points, or seconds. It’s the upbringing of a properly developed person. This standard is universally recognized in the world today […] Today, this investment must be justified and obligatory

Your Money And/Or Your Life: The Lack of a Freedom of Choice
I believe we live in a time when there is not much of a choice. We need to make decisions that will provide us with an opportunity to see things long term. Everyone should understand where we are going, what goals we are setting, and what the priority is. It’s like in the final game: you are fully concentrated, and if you don’t have motivation, if you’re not physically or psychologically prepared for the game today, then you won’t be able to defeat your opponent

A Healthy Climate: What Does It Look Like?
Controlling the quality of air and water, creating an industry for cleaning all our water resources, which will soon be the main resource in geopolitics – these are also tasks that today require solutions from government, business and science especially. Forest conservation is also a very important topic

A Healthy Climate: What Does It Look Like?
Last year, the President [Vladimir Putin. — Ed.] depoliticized everything related to this issue, speaking in Kunming at a conference on biodiversity, before the Russian delegation went to Glasgow. He said that we need it, our children, our grandchildren need it, and therefore we will do everything in order to correct the situation with the accumulated damage, introduce environmental conservation technologies

In Search of New Meanings: Science, Culture, and Sport
Today, ice-hockey is an expensive sport that not every family can afford. This means advance discrimination against some children compared to all the others. […] The meaning of the new solutions is simple, I believe: to take a look, remove discrimination, especially socially. […] I think it would be a good idea today to have the state or big businesses pay for hockey sticks and skates for children. Meaning, the boundary will beerased for ever. Plus, I think, modern methods, and we can find our own way… there is a possibility to create equal opportunities. […] We need to get away from oligarch clubs; we need to create equal conditions for all. […] Teams from Siberia, the Far East and other parts of our vast country must have equal opportunities

Thus, the proposed creation [...] of a network of protected marine areas and areas with special nature management based on marine spatial planning may be an ideal solution […] We need to invest in measures to prevent, prepare for, and respond to combined risks [...] Uniform rules need to be created for responsible financing in the region

Presentation of the Goals and Programme of the Chairmanship of the Russian Federation in the Arctic Council in 2021-2023
I wanted to speak about nuclear energy. The most reliable technologies, the most advanced in terms of security and, it appears, the only alternative for the further development of the Arctic regions, are associated with the use of this energy. We have successful experience with use of nuclear energy in the Arctic, I hope that we will be able to make clear how important and safe it is today

Everything that is connected with the development of the Arctic must be considered in the context of the opinions of indigenous peoples, it is necessary to take into account their way of life, their life experience. For many centuries they have lived in difficult conditions. [...] It seems to me that in the near future there will be important developments in the Arctic Council in terms of the unification of resources, technology, an understanding of the fact that without unity, a team, which should take upon itself the challenge of what we together have done in recent times. [...] We have together successfully destroyed 50% of all life on the planet Earth. Taking the debt from our children, today we must attend to a very important point: the unification of resources, technologies, understanding that together we can solve the problem

Opportunities and Risks for the Ocean Economy: Ensuring Sustainable Use of the World Ocean’s Natural Riches
Unfortunately, 99% of people do not think about what is going to happen to our planet in 10–20–30 years. Today science more than ever needs the support of famous people in different countries. That is why it is important to engage famous people in order to share the concerns of scientists regarding what is happening on the planet. <…> It is time to unite around this crucial environmental challenge so that our children and grandchildren could deal with it
