Altai - threatened by Gasprom pipeline

27 march 2007
WWF together, Greenpeace and Biodiversity conservation center held a press-conference to oppose the only suggested route of Altai gas pipeline to China. The Ukok natural park - a regional protected area and a UNESCO world heritage site - is under threat of being crossed by the pipeline and - what is more dangerous - by a technical road between Russia and China. Newly established NGO coalition led by WWF-Russia demands that alternative routes be considered (through Mongolia along existing roads or estwards along Transneft oil pipeline).
