The Paris Agreement, which Russia signed in 2016, gives countries a choice in how to join the accords by ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the agreement, depending on their national legislation. The decision to "accept" the accord signifies "Russia's consent to the obligations under the Paris Agreement." While not formally named a "ratification," the government said in a statement that the decree signifies Russia's adoption of the agreement and "Russia's consent to the obligations under the Paris Agreement". One of the world's key energy producers, Russia has remained one of the largest economies and polluters that signed but failed to ratify the accord.
