Geological storage of carbon dioxide has been recognized as a necessary technology for environmental sustainability by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in recent years. Currently, there are no active carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects in Russian Federation; however rich international experience has been accumulated in this area. The main purpose of the research is to substantiate regional geological criteria for assessing the territory of the Russian Federation for the prospects for carbon dioxide dis-posal. Based on the current international and Russian regulatory frameworks for the disposal of carbon dioxide, industrial effluents, toxic waste, and the arrangement and monitoring of underground gas storage facilities, we have proposed criteria for a regional forecast of the territory in order to implement CCUS projects. The territory of the Russian Federation was assessed in terms of suitability for long-term storage of carbon dioxide. For the first time the territory is divided into high-, medium-, low-promising and unpromising. A map for the implementation of CCUS projects on the territory of the Russian Federation was compiled according to the regional level criteria (scale 1: 2500000) in the form of an ArcGis project. Within the Eastern European hy-drogeological region, the most promising artesian basins are: Moscow, Severo-Dvinsky, Vetluzhsky, Volga-Khopersky, Volga-Sursky, Kamsko-Vy-atsky. Highly promising also includes the Pechora artesian basin, located within the Pechora-Barents sea platform plate. In the West Siberian region these are the Taz-Pur and Irtysh-Ob artesian basins. In the Arctic sector of the East Siberian hydrogeological region, the greatest prospects should be associated with the Pyasino-Yenisei and Balakhna artesian basins. In the southern part, the Putoransky, Nizhne-Tungussky, Katangsky and Prian-garsky artesian basins stand out as the most promising.
