Russia has gone beyond commitments in Kyoto Protocol, Putin says

PARIS, Dec. 01 (MNA) – President Vladimir Putin said in Paris that Russia has gone beyond commitments in Kyoto protocol, with a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Russia not only has banned the growth of emissions but reduce them significantly and thanks to that 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide did not enter the atmosphere, he said while addressing the 140 heads of state and government at the COP21 climate summit in Paris.

Putin recalled that the volume of greenhouse gases emitted worldwide reached the 46 billion tons.

In other words, Russi’s efforts allow slowing down global warming in a year, he reckoned in his speech broadcast here by channel 24.

He stressed that Moscow will provide financial and technological support to developing countries to mitigate problems caused by climate change, which will contribute to the joint efforts to prevent global warming.

He said that by 2030, Russia will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent compared with 1990. This will be achieved through "breakthrough technologies and nanotechnologies". UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon reported that about 166 countries, which are responsible for almost 90 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions, presented their action plans.
