Accounts Chamber: Indigenous people do not receive enough state support

The Accounts Chamber of Russia analyzed how the country implements national policy strategies to ensure the rights of indigenous peoples in 2013-2018, and stated that about 80% of organizations of indigenous peoples do not participate in state support programs.

As stated by the auditor of the Accounts Chamber Tatyana Blinova, this indicates a low involvement of civil society institutions in partnerships with the state. According to her, the legal guarantees of the indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East are significantly different from the legal guarantees of small peoples living in other territories. As a result, it creates the risks of a negative attitude of these peoples to the state support provided to them.

At the same time, the lists of KMN approved by the Russian government do not correspond to the concept of small indigenous peoples established by law. As a result, there are risks of providing financial support to representatives of non-indigenous peoples.

According to the press service of the Accounts Chamber, in 2013-2018, in support of economic and social development, KMN from all sources amounted to 2,8 billion rubles, but the KMS organizations received 157,8 million rubles directly. The Accounts Chamber said that most of the subsidies are spent without the participation of the CCM.

Mikhail Ipatov, deputy head of the Federal Agency for Nationalities Affairs, agreed with the conclusions of the Accounts Chamber and said that all comments would be taken into account when adopting new rules for the distribution and provision of subsidies.
