Subject headings used by the Library of Congress (with geographical subdivisions) under which relevant books on environmental concerns in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe can be identified in most card, book, and online catalogs, include the following: Highly Relevant. AIR--POLLUTION ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY.

The post-Soviet states, also known as the former Soviet Union, the former Soviet Republics and in Russia as the near abroad (Russian: бли́жнее зарубе́жье, romanized: blizhneye zarubezhye), are the 15 sovereign states that emerged and re-emerged from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics following its breakup in , with Russia being the primary de facto internationally Missing: Atmospheric pollution. Soviet Union’s polluted land On S , the Blacksmith Institute, a US-based environmental charity, published its annual report naming the “dirty thirty“—the 30 most polluted cities in the world. Cities from the former USSR feature prominently on the list, having paid a high price for industrialisation. In.
