Keywords: rights, indigenous minorities of the North, implementation, guarantees

The article discusses implementation of guarantees provided for indigenous minorities of the North in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug – Yugra. The Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees the rights of indigenous peoples in accordance with universally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties of the Russian Federation. The rights of indigenous peoples’ representatives are regulated in more detail in the Federal law «On guarantees of rights of indigenous minorities of the Russian Federation», implementation of a number of provisions of which cause difficulties in established practice in applying the law. In this regard, two most important problems in the field of legal regulation are marked – they are preservation of authentic culture, its development as well as protection of primordial living environment of indigenous minorities of the North residing on the territory of Yugra. The problem of the environment is made a pointed reference, as development of oil fields and oil production is accompanied by an increase in the number of objects with a negative impact on the environmental situation in Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous district-Yugra.
