The Russian government is more concerned in spending it's financial resources on offensive military toys, than in responsible management of it's oil industry. You would think managing and maintaining infrastructure such as pipe lines, ships, and other equipment needed would be a priorty as it is Russia's major financial asset. But they seem not to care, rather to keep spending on an offensive military capability, which still, after billions have been spent, has led to little improvement and a questionable purpose.

How can such a crude and offensive person as yourself opine about the nature of offensiveness without looking in the mirror?
It's patently absurd.

Many of these environmental disasters are a legacy of the former soviet union. Cleanups will be a monumental task. However, Russia has the skills, technology and resources for implimenting overdue responsibilities. It's just a matter of priorities.

Yes, many are the legacy of the soviet union. But, still remain because of the current soviet mindset of the Rulers of russia. And in the meantime the pollution problem continues unabated, unfixed, and not addressed. While billions are wasted on an offensive military and other grandiose schemes of Putin.
