This chapter examines the impact of environmental injustices on post-Soviet Russia’s indigenous peoples, particularly the Viliui Sakha. It discusses the environmental history of the Viliui regions and the citizen activism and corporate activities and compares the situation of the Viliui Sakha with the indigenous peoples in the diamond-mining districts of Canada’s Northwest Territories. This chapter also describes the factors or conditions that can help promote environmental justice including an effective legal infrastructure to implement and enforce law and a transparent economic development process.
