In spite of owning an abundance of natural resources, hosting successful
mining enterprises and companies, and receiving significant payments for natural
resource use, local areas of eastern Russia remain poor. One reason for this
state of affairs is the meagerness of the contributions that resource companies
have made to local budgets, despite the fact that in many cases, they are the
municipalities’ main sources of funding. We determine that the existing domesticpayments
scheme for natural resource use does not sufficiently contribute to
socioeconomic development in local areas where natural resources are located.
Ecological problems that have persisted since the Soviet era have been resolved
by neither the local authorities (owing to a lack of financial resources) nor by
regional or federal authorities̶despite the fact that both have accumulated the
majority of enterprise payments stemming from the use of natural resources, and
compensation for environmental pollution.
