Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday signed a Cabinet resolution on ratifying the Paris Climate Agreement. “I signed a government resolution, it concerns the adoption of the Paris climate agreement,” Medvedev said at a meeting with deputy prime ministers.
Russia signed the agreement on 22 April 2016, and 195 nations and the European Union have signed the Agreement by now. Ten nations are still yet to ratify the deal.
