Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev instructed the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources to prepare a bill that would oblige the owners of sunken ships to lift them from the bottom and dispose of them. The ministry should prepare the document within a month.

Now about 550 vessels are flooded in the Far East. At a meeting in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Trutnev said that there was no clear state policy on this issue, and it was pointless to continue the discussion, therefore, he instructed to draft a bill. According to it, the owner of the vessel will lose the right of ownership if he does not raise it.

According to the press service of the Government of the Sakhalin Oblast, the envoy called for business to be involved in this work, while he will be helped by state subsidies. The funding that will be needed to carry out the lifting and recycling of vessels should be requested by the Ministry of Natural Resources as part of the 2021 budget year.
