“Risk assessments were performed and the conclusion was made that we have time. Plans that Russia will ratify the agreement not earlier than 2020 remain in force for the time being,” the minister said.

The Paris Agreement will succeed the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2020.

Russia will ratify the Paris Agreement aimed at combating global climate changes not earlier than 2019 or 2020, adviser to the President Alexander Bedritsky told TASS in June.
