Russian Aviation & Space Agency (Rosaviakosmos) approved its Space Debris Mitigation Standard in July 2000. The Standard has been analyzed and compared with the similar Standards of the USA, France and Japan. It has been shown, that basically all recommendations of mentioned Standards had been included in the Russian Standard. There are some differences in boundaries space object burial zones in the GEO region. These differences were discussed of at the 18-th IADC meeting in June, 2000 in Colorado Springs (USA). The terminology in the Russian and other national Standards is different but the functional equivalence was finally recognized. The procedures of introducing the Standard by space vehicle designers and operators are under consideration.
