Funding for the Global Ocean studies in Russia is insufficient, Deputy Prime Minister Borisov says
«Without conducting these studies, it is impossible to ensure the sustainable development of maritime activities and the national security of the Russian Federation. At the same time, a number of problems in this area have accumulated. The amount of funding is currently insufficient to conduct full-scale scientific studies of the Global Ocean,» he said.
Borisov added that much larger investments and modernisation of the research fleet are required.
