The bill on the creation of a federal register of indigenous small-numbered peoples of Russia, which caused a stir in Yakutia, is ready for submission to the State Duma.

This was recently reported by Grigory Ledkov, member of the State Duma Committee on Nationalities Affairs, president of the Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East.

"The draft law is under discussion. The bill itself does not cause difficulties: to give powers to the government, to determine the federal authority. There are many questions around the by-law, the rules - How to identify the traditional nature use, what is the participation of the public, how to determine the nationality,"- said Grigory Ledkov.

It is noted that the creation of the register will help minimize the corruption component in the support of small nations and reduce the number of abuses in the sphere of granting benefits.

Citizens of the Russian Federation can be included in the register on the basis of an application or by a court decision, the press service of Il Tumen reports, citing TASS.
