Another successful federal project is Clean Air. Since the beginning of the year, in 12 participating cities of the project, almost five thousand houses have been switched from coal to gas and electricity, six city boiler houses have been closed and modernized, 122 public transport units have been replaced with electric buses, trams and trolleybuses.

As part of the implementation of another project, the Volga River Rehabilitation, 96 wastewater treatment plants were put into operation. At the moment, 42 more facilities are under construction. By the end of the year, work will be completed on 13 of them. The project is aimed at reducing polluted wastewater discharged into the Volga River. In addition, culverts are being built in the lower reaches of the Volga to improve water exchange. Over the five years of the national project, 54 facilities have been commissioned, six of them this year. By the end of 2024, the number of culverts will grow to 80.

In the future, it is planned to continue the implementation of the national project "Ecology".
