Shoal of Lena: what happens to Russian rivers?

Something is clearly wrong with our country. The Volga, one of the largest rivers in Europe, has become shallow. Siberia burns so that it is necessary to extinguish with the help of the military. And now Lena, the most full-flowing river in Russia, has become catastrophically shallowed. What is going on and who is to blame - the “liberals", the Chinese, climate change, or all together?




The Lena River - the largest in Russia, passes through Yakutia and the Irkutsk region. Its tributaries also originate in the Amur Region and Buryatia, Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk and Trans-Baikal Territories. This is the main waterway of Yakutia, connecting it with the "mainland". The main part of the "northern delivery" passes along the river. Lena is traditionally rich in fish resources, 37 species of fish live in it.

Rather, it was rich. Now all of the above is a big question. The representative of the company engaged in river transportation, Boris Stroyev, explains that the river is critically shallow:

Meteors cannot pass. Can't get a tanker, you know. A large fleet, it stands, cannot pass due to shallow water.


In the capital of the region, the city of Yakutsk, there the ships simply stand in silt and sand, and the water receded. And it’s okay for tankers, but even small vessels have problems, says boat owner Sergei Yarygin:

Those who still have more or less small boats can afford to lift them, and those who have bigger boats - it’s still difficult. We can’t lift the boat, and we can’t get out either, there the depth is less than 30 centimeters.


And this is about the recently most full-flowing Russian river! At the moment, as a transport artery - it de facto ceased to exist. Along with the water, the fish naturally disappeared, local fishermen complain:

The river began to grind, and the fish disappeared somewhere. How many do not come, I throw - there is no fish.


It all looks like a complete environmental and economic catastrophe. But how was this possible? How much is the “human factor” in the incident, and how much is the irresistible force of nature?

Specially trained people explain to the population that this is a matter of rapid climate change:

Yakutia is one of the most sensitive regions that respond to such changes.


According to environmentalists, in 2013, Lena also became shallow due to a strong anticyclone, which did not allow precipitation to reach her. In this case, there is a gradual degradation of permafrost, which leads to subsidence and the formation of karst lakes. Well, denying climate change and its impact on the environment would be foolish. But this is not the whole truth.

Unfortunately, the catastrophic shallowing of the Lena River clearly shows the work of human hands. It is easy to notice that the upper reaches of the East Siberian river are located precisely in those regions where terrible forest fires now rage annually. Like us previously told, fires are the result of illegal and barbaric deforestation. "Black lumberjacks" are tearing down the taiga, which radically violates the water balance. Rivers receive less water from swamps and small rivers. Smokes from forest fires not only prevent local residents from breathing, but also erode the clouds, preventing precipitation. Those few rains that pass, the picture does not change, because the water, not lingering, goes into the ground.

As a result, even the great Lena turned into a drying stream. Throwing everything on the climate is convenient, but dishonest. The inconvenient truth is that a criminal logging rampant in Siberia became possible only after the adoption in 2006 of a new Forest Code, which created all the conditions for the arrival of “effective owners”. But instead of them came the "locust", which is taking down hundreds of hectares of our forest under the root. Some 13 years were enough for an environmental disaster, not only in the taiga, but also on the once-most full-flowing Russian river Lena.

If a damn dozen years is not enough for the authorities to understand, let’s say again. Forests, rivers, swamps are a single large organism, where everything is interconnected. It is necessary to immediately amend the Forest Code of the Russian Federation and recreate a powerful federal forest conservation structure, with tens of thousands of foresters, as it was before, with the appropriate budget, powers and logistical equipment. Otherwise, it will only get worse.

    Interestingly, the foresters still remained, or did everyone leave for the generals?

      After the onset of the "era of democracy", the staff of FOREST was reduced by 14 thousand people! At the same time, they began to "allocate" land for "elite" buildings! Or simply put - to TOLSTOSUM! And to "effective managers"!

    Under Stalin, damage to forestry was equated with treason and sabotage. For arson set against the wall. It's just that people are stupefied with impunity. Then give the deadline, and not just the lumberjacks. I remember from school that they cut down forests - the river becomes shallow.

    China has completely halted deforestation.

    https://www.meteovesti.ru/news/63551320736-kitaj-polnostyu-priostanovil-vyrubku-svoih-lesov

    2014 article. But the Russian forest goes not only to China. The main buyers are also Canada and the United States. China purchases about 60% of raw wood from Russia. Canada is in second place and may come out on top in timber purchases from Russia. But only such facts are important for marketers: Investments in Russian forestry have increased (well, of course, Canadians and Chinese are more profitable to invest in destroying the ecology of Russia), the price of exported forest has decreased, but due to increased supplies, profit has increased.
    Order must be brought up. At the head of the state should be "statists," not "marketers."

      Hello to you, Bahit! I live in the Southern Urals - Orenburg region. A river flows through our settlement, which feeds the Urals. It reaches our village - on foot we already cross, and earlier depths of 7-15 were normal ... One of the reasons is the river’s blocking in the expanses of Bashkiria - 3 large reservoirs ... I understand that there was not enough water, but to do so that only a stream reaches the Urals instead of a normal river ...

        Reservoirs alone cannot cause shallowing of a river. Shallowing occurs during filling reservoirs. Then the drain is restored. Most likely, water from reservoirs is used for irrigation.
        But in any case, this is not a question for me. And this topic is hardly related. Ask your local land reclamation agency. I am not familiar with the geography of the Orenburg region. But, it seems to me, there are no large forests there and the "black lumberjacks" are hardly to blame.

        The new worker (feeble, thin) got a job as a forest feller in a brigade. The people chuckle and send him to the farthest plot. By the end of the day, come to see the results. The plot is clean! Even the bushes are gone!
        Shocked lumberjacks pester newbie questions:
        - Where did you learn this? Where did you work before?
        - In the Sahara, three years!
        - Man, there is no forest there !?
        - And it won’t be here ...

          And this topic is hardly related.

          And here you are wrong - in this article it is indicated that one of the reasons for the shallowing of rivers is human activity. Here is the construction of dams for irrigation and there is an intervention. So you indicated that the drain is restored after filling ... And how will it recover if the water is constantly taken from the dam and it just DOESN'T BE FILLED?

        Do not enter the same river twice. And Stalin does not resurrect. But statists should appear. Logic itself is pushing for this. It just seems that there is no alternative. An alternative is always found. And always unexpected. Who would have thought that out of a fiery revolutionary-Leninist a statesman Stalin would turn out?

          Bahit, but let's remember - when did this statesman appear? What preceded this? WHAT did our peoples have to go through and how many to lose?
          In my opinion, an amateur, a BIG tragedy should happen when our leadership either takes on the mind (which is doubtful) or a radical change of elites takes place ... although I don’t want either revolution or civil war ...

            It’s not for me to advise because of the hill. But sometimes it’s more visible from the side. And I do not want to give my recommendations. But we all see with our own eyes. This is not a story presented to us from screens and books. This is our real life. The advent of Stalin 2.0 is not possible at this time. But the emergence of a strong "statesman" is a completely urgent need.
            I can only advise you to look at Putin's rating. His vacillations over the past 10 years and forget that he is a person. He is the president. This is not his personal rating. This is not a relation to his personality, but the attitude of the people to the line headed by the country's president. Two major failures in 2005 and 2018. When the rating fell to the lowest values. These are monetization of benefits (2005) and pension reform (2018). Takeoff after the annexation of Crimea (2014). The people quite clearly express their opinion.

              Nuuuu .... GDP ONE will do nothing .... He has a team. But the only question is - is this team so devoted to him? And is it acting for the good of Russia? Of course, you can say in my words that I'm talking about the "good king and about the bad boyars." But ... In our country there are too many actions that the people can’t understand in any way, just as they are struggling. For many of us, it is still unclear - why are hedgehogs and snakes being molded together? Why blind the socialist "state guarantees to the population" with overt wild savage capitalism? For what? Indeed, it is already clear to everyone that THIS DOES NOT WORK !!! Isn’t it easier to admit that after 1917, the restoration of capitalism in Russia can ONLY lead to ruin and wars, for capitalism itself is a predatory state of the economy, where people are thought of last or least, and most often they are not thought at all!
              Our leadership, most likely, knows that cutting off the population from "social guarantees", this leadership will be immediately demolished. And to live "hotstsa" everyone and, preferably, sweetly. They understand very well that by excluding these very “guarantees” from the economy, they will put the population before the fact that the state needs this population only as a “nutritional base” ...
              And once again the question arises - is it time to decide on which structure our state will exist. Under socialism or under capitalism? After all, if you ask the population of Russia, then most of it will unequivocally vote for socialism (for very many people remember everything good that was in the USSR, but they did not forget the minuses). Of course, we won’t be able to return to USSR 2.0, and we don’t need it (since we don’t need the mistakes that caused the country to collapse, and we won’t get everyone back together (and this also doesn’t need to be - all for mutual desire, and it’s just that Russia’s “neighbors” don’t have it), but “you won’t be pretty sweet.” But to make the state work for the people, and not for making money from everything and everything, sucking out the last juices Then it will be necessary to establish new rules for the relations between the state and the population of the country, with ANY OTHER TYPE OF ECONOMY NEEDED!
              Or, nevertheless, BEFORE THE END abandon "some kind of outdated socialism-scoop", but then the people will be untied. In the end, no one will forbid the people to SURVIVE by deceiving and robbing such a state as it is deceiving and robbing it. But then, again, another civil war is possible. And again there will be human losses.
              It is impossible to be one foot in socialism and the other in capitalism. So the legs and corrode, and the crotch can be torn (read - to disappear as a people, as a civilization), because the discord that exists today is only in the hands of the enemies, both external and their hangers-on, inside us. There should be clear and intelligible rules for the interaction of the people and the state, and not an incomprehensible SOMETHING!

                “In reality, we are in the grip of a huge ruthless system ... _____ entrepreneurship does not enjoy freedom: it becomes increasingly difficult for a person with only a small capital to start a business and it is increasingly impossible to compete with a big businessman. Why? Because the laws of our country do not prohibit the strong to suppress the weak. This is the reason, and due to the fact that the strong crushed the weak, they now dominate the industry and economic life of the country ... ”

                “We have not one, not two, but many areas of application of forces into which it is difficult for an independent person, if not impossible to penetrate. Now we have become one of the most poorly governed, one of the comprehensively controlled and dominated governments of the civilized world ... into a government subordinate to the will and pressure of small groups consisting of people with power. "

                I wonder what country these quotes refer to?

                    Yes, the future president of the United States wrote about his country. When liberals poured into the USSR about the charms of capitalism, they did not say anything about the period of "primary accumulation of capital" and about wild capitalism. In 1932, there was famine in the States, millions of homeless people, and a pre-revolutionary situation. F. D. Roosevelt stated:

                    If I am a bad president, I will be the last president. "

                    So, everything is going, as it should be. The system is in action. And if you do not change it, then you can speak and write here until the end of the century.

                      Bachite, but the system may not work! This is perfectly shown to us in the Ukrainian territories! The "accumulation period" may end in chaos and lawlessness. And, somehow, I’m sure that the same thing could well happen in Russia. After all, in fact, we are Ukrainians - one people. And what happens to them awaited us in the 90s. Here are just the military we have been more decisive.
                      Maybe Shoigu put in charge? ...

                        There was a joke once used -

                        The fish rots from the head.

                        To which they pointedly answered me:

                        But they clean it from the tail.

                        The example of America and any Western country shows that, in the end, those people come who stop the rampant capitalism. If they do not come, then the country comes kirdyk. The same Roosevelt was a Wilson nominee. Kennedy, although he himself was from a non-poor clan, said:

                        My father always told me that all capitalists are bitches. But I did not believe him.

                        And so he crushed the steel kings that they crawled to him to ask for a relaxation of sanctions.
                        What will the military give? Grachev was also a military man. And, it seems, even fighting. But he shot the Parliament. The swan was also a general. And not parquet. And he signed Khasavyurt. Are you sure that Shoigu will defend the interests of the state? After all, he is also a nominee of the Yeltsin circle. Stalin was not a military man. Churchill also did not reach high ranks. Seems to have reached the rank of captain.
                        To date, I do not even see attempts to change the course of things. The problem (in my opinion of the layman) is that both I and you survived once the demolition of the state. And the second time the country may not survive this. So I am against sudden movements.
                        As the saying goes -

                        One careless movement, and you are the father.

                        Stalin was not a PROFESSIONAL military, but was a professional revolutionary, and he had subordinate professional military men. There is a saying that the Bolshevik government, after October 1917, was the most professional at that time in the world. And who knows - if you didn’t provoke world capital the Civil War in Russia, Soviet Russia could VERY quickly start its modernization and its industrial revolution - after all, ALL specialists at the time of the revolution HAVE NOT GOING TO GO ANYWHERE. And only Gv did what later came back to us in the 20-30s (shortage of special personnel in various areas of industry in general, the economy) ... But Shoigu DOES NOT HAPPEN prof. military! The rank of general army was assigned to him upon the fact of his position. But he began by creating such a noble structure as the Ministry of Emergencies. And the way they manage it now shows that, despite the terrible situation in the country (at that time), despite the frankly amateurish management AFTER SCH, the structure is the MOST strong among those on the planet. And ... I have a suspicion that, having come to power, Shoigu will begin the purges ... well, not like in 36-37. of the last century ... but somewhere close ... after all, after coming to the post of Minister of Defense, he grew up. the army has become what it is today. Yes, and the “defense industry” has grown very much since the arrival of the UK. And one more moment - he was not literally a nominee of the "family" - he was pushed into this place. Slid to prevent other more important posts. It was hoped that he would turn his neck there - NOBODY at that time in the Russian Federation had no understanding of what to do with such a unit. And SKS created a structure that was not yet in the WORLD! It’s just that in the “family” no one was capable of anything like that - to destroy, break, sell - YES!
                        I have a suspicion that the GDP is conducting Shoigu through all stages of government and it is quite possible that the time will come when the SKS will become the prime minister ... or maybe they will not bother - immediately for the presidency. But as it really is - time will tell.
                        And such a thing may happen - the abolition of the institution of presidency. Indeed, before the creation of this post in the USSR (or something similar), the country was ruled collectively. It is no secret that we, in Russia, have two peaks of the vertical of power - the president and the prime minister, where the second submits to the first and here, it seems, we get dual power. Which often leads to conflicts within power structures ... But this is a separate topic for discussion.

                        Collective management looks preferable if it were not for one But ... In crisis situations, one commander is needed. One who will take responsibility and decision. I don’t know who has such a determination.

    The main buyers are also Canada and the United States. China purchases about 60% of raw wood from Russia. Canada is in second place and may come out on top in timber purchases from Russia.

    Personally, I am for the most severe punishment of illegal logging.
    But from what lyad you stick Canada here? Canada itself cuts - be healthy.
    Here are the main buyers of Russian forest:

    For comparison: according to the Federal Customs Service, the total export of raw wood from Russia in 2017 amounted to 19,4 million cubic meters. m, more than 66% of supplies (12,9 million cubic meters) came from China. In second place with a 26% stake is Finland. Other countries (Sweden, Kazakhstan, Japan, etc.) account for shares of 2% or less.

    And the fact that China has stopped chopping its forest is also not true.

    In the first place for deforestation - the United States. 350 million cubic meters per year. In second place with a wide margin - Russia, and a little lower - China, Canada, Brazil.

    Russia, although it cuts less than the United States, but sells on the world market the most.

    But the Russian forest goes not only to China. The main buyers are also Canada and the United States.

    Deforestation along the banks of the rivers has never benefited them, and the GDP looks at this mess through the fingers, instead of sending FSB special forces and an investigation commission to the region and putting things in order there. The fish rots from the head...

    Why be surprised when both the authorities and law enforcement agencies are full of effective managers who forge their personal condition. They have no time to be distracted.

    Well, everything is much simpler:
    It’s dead to ban the export of forests, in this case to China ...
    Dates and penalties for violation should be brought closer to fatal for legal entities and lifelong for physical, of course - not for drunken arsonists, although for them too, but for corrupt officials - this is where all kinds of permits come from ...
    Recent events about the reluctance of local elites to extinguish fires, especially vividly confirm this! ...

    Nope, foresters are almost gone in Siberia, there were only thieves-officials: the governors of the territories, regions, mayors and their servants, and another petty thief, but again only for themselves. And since such people are sitting senators in the upper house, they do not accept laws against themselves.
