Krasnodar, 6 December – Yug Times. Adyghea will reportedly change the local legislation to help preserve the landscape of cultural and historic localities. In particular, a 50 m wide protection zone is to be introduced around the dolmens.
“In the past, there used to be about 1,500 dolmens in Adyghea, but they have practically disappeared over the past 150 years due to the men’s activities. Only two untouched dolmens have remained, and two more were restored by archaeologists in 2013,” Igor Ogai, Chairman of the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, stated. “This is why we have to take care of the monuments themselves as well as of the cultural-historic and landscape zone around them.”
Head of Adyghea Murat Kumpilov backed the proposal and ordered that it be converted into draft amendments to the regional legislation.
