Mechanisms of protection of small-numbered indigenous peoples original habitat including its protection from industrial encroachment are clearly described in the bill. People leading traditional living will acquire all necessary rights and social support of public authorities according to the bill. At present there are no bills to regulate protection of small-numbered indigenous peoples original habitat and traditional living neither on federal nor on regional levels.
