    The past and the Duma

    State Duma of the Russian Federation has rejected the bill supported by the business community and supposed to call off the requirement on obligatory state environmental expert approval (SEEA) of oil spill response activities plans and to return to previously used closed list of activities subject to SEEA. Meanwhile, the draft law on line shipping has been approved and the access to the Far East and the Arctic has been simplified for tourists travelling by sea.
