Russia loses its taiga against the backdrop of inaction of the authorities


Every year in our country more and more forests burn out. Only direct damage from forest fires in 2019 was estimated at 2,4 billion rubles. Huge areas burn up, animals and birds die, people suffocate from the smell of burning. We are constantly told about the insidious Chinese and the "black lumberjacks", who are taking down the root of the Russian taiga. But are they the only ones?


Let's be honest: the "atomic bomb" under our forest was laid by the government itself in 2007, adopting the Forest Code. Why is this document criticized so much?

At first, this law overnight destroyed the federal forestry system being created for decades. Professional foresters were on the street, their number was reduced at times. The powers to protect and restore forests were transferred to regions that simply did not and still do not have sufficient funding or materialtechnical base. Yes, the taiga burned before, but until 2007, they fought this phenomenon centrally and carried out prophylaxis. Over the past 13 years, the scale of man-made disasters only grows along with burnout areas.

Secondly, The LC of the RF “liberalized” the relationship between, so to speak, “businessmen” and the Russian taiga, eliminating the permissive nature of economic activity and replacing it with a declarative one. The media scare the townsfolk with horror stories about the "black loggers", under cover of night, blowing down trees for sale in China. But this law potentially turns into a "black lumberjack" of any tenant. It is enough for him to get a lease agreement and that’s all, on this site he is a full-fledged owner, whom there is nobody to check. And this is not an exaggeration. Here is what the Accounts Chamber writes on this occasion:

The ability of tenants of forest plots to independently determine the executor of forest inventory works, the frequency of forest inventory in the forest plot rented by him in the absence of proper control by the authorized executive authorities in the field of forest relations entails risks of corruption in order to prepare "custom-made" forest inventory materials for an unjustified increase in logging volumes.

In other words, these same "tenants" independently determine how and how much they should cut down, how much and where to restore the forests. The Forest Code does not even spell out legal grounds for quality checks of the required reforestation. And this is another gigantic problem, which we will discuss further.

Thirdly, not only is the taiga mercilessly taking root, thanks to the 2007 Forest Code, it has not yet been restored. Under this law, the responsibility for reforestation lies with the tenants of the plots. As they fulfill their duties, we see. Also, funds for these purposes are allocated by the federal center and regions. The question is where are they spent and where is the result? According to the Accounting Chamber, over the past five years, 6,3 billion rubles have been allocated for the study, description of forests and their characteristics, protection and reproduction. The funds received were enough to study about 10,1% of the country's total forest fund. Everything else for the inspectors is the "dark forest", sorry for the pun.

Auditors of the Accounts Chamber indicate that information on the state of 9,67 million hectares of forest in Russia is irrelevant, since the latest studies on them were conducted more than 10 years ago. For comparison, the US area is 9,5 million hectares. In fact, the LC of 2007 introduced the gigantic part of our country into the real “twilight zone”, where you can create anything you want. The results of their "economic activity" are lumberjacks mask with fires, the area of ​​which is growing from year to year.

This has been said for 13 years, and all to no avail. Excuse me, who accepted this Forest Code and why? These aliens arrived and pushed buttons in the State Duma and the Federation Council, and then instead of President Putin they signed it, or what? Or masons? Or who? Why, finally, one cannot recognize the fallacy of those decisions and reverse them?

Now they are urging us to vote for amendments to the Constitution, after which we supposedly will live happily ever after. Well then, let's add to the Basic Law clauses on the need to protect the Russian forest and write down specific mechanisms in it. Let Vladimir Putin amend the Forest Code accordingly, proving to the people that he can work on his mistakes. If you do not take action right now, what will remain of our taiga in another 10-20 years? Where are you activist activists? Make proposals for additional amendments to the Constitution, while there is such an opportunity.

    - Yes ... hardly any foresters (forest sheriffs) there and even state supervisory authorities will be able to cope with the gigantic industry today; which grew up on the possibility of enriching ourselves on miserable handouts (but even this quite suits our grabbers in the field) ...- on the miserable handouts of the Chinese "black cash" ...
    - Here we need a special separate state well-equipped service ...- at the level of forest special forces; who will be ready to land on helicopters (and even parachutes) and really punish both poachers, and these "lumberjacks", and taiga arsonists, and any other criminal "fraternity" ...
    - But they will be able to specifically knock out the belief already rooted in the brains of lovers of such a profit that everything will go unpunished ... - That no "calls from influential bureaucrats" after their detention will save either themselves or the organizers of this whole "business." ...
    - And then ... - Well, what can a lone forester do with a whole gang of lumberjacks ... in a dense forest ?????? - It's so ridiculous and tragic ...
    - In American action movies, the dashing sheriff copes with a whole bunch of bad guys ... - Well, this only happens in the movies ...
    - Well, anyway ...- personally to the author I put a plus ...

    What is the problem? Go and gather a group of 5 deputies and make a proposal for amendment. Where are your like-minded "left" views?

      Go and collect a group of 5 deputies ...

      123, and do you imagine the logistics of “collecting 5 deputies”?
      They will not come if they do not know the agenda. So you need to send an email. Let’s send each article Marzhecki.
      And then, as you read it, the thought: “Yes, it’s not good, of course, but we agreed, and Putin signed. So what to do now? Admit a mistake? His or Putin’s? then they’ll also kick them out! "
      "And who wrote this letter? Does he need the most? We have not only the forest burning, but all our medicine is burning and the tundra is drowning in gasoline !!!"
      "Isn't he a provocateur?"
      Well, etc. in the best Soviet genre. You, 123, as a patriot, love your country and forgive it for its small flaws ... And to hell with it, with the forest, the main thing is that the territory will not decrease !!!

        If they don’t know what to do, just look in the law, taking the initiative is not so difficult. Since they don’t understand such simple things, this is the problem of voters. Who did Marzhetsky vote for? Where are these representatives of the "left" movement ideologically close to him? Another thing is that they are of little interest to them, and there are not so many people who believe that everything should be shoved into the Constitution, including the Forest Code. Who will vote for this? Today is forest, tomorrow is air, then will GOSTs go?

        Admit a mistake? His or Putin? If they’re theirs, then they will drive them out, and if not theirs, they will also drive them out!

        You have strange views. No one denies the problem.



        “And who wrote this letter? Does he need the most? We have not only the forest burning, but all our medicine is burning and the tundra is drowning in gasoline !!!”

        Well, that the forest is burning and medicine is burning, this is not news. And what do you have with the tundra? Where does gas come from? Is this how our diesel fuel leaked?

        Isn't he a provocateur? ”

        Very correct question. good Maybe a provocateur, or maybe just a hipojer. what If you really were interested in the topic, it would be wise to start a draft of a new code to look, rather than shout - Putin, go away - and let's push everything into the Constitution. Still, a man boasts a legal diploma.

        Well, etc. in the best Soviet genre. You, 123, as a patriot, love your country and forgive it for its small flaws ... And to hell with it, with the forest, the main thing is that the territory will not decrease !!!

        You're right, good I love the country, whatever it is, but ours. As for the problems with the forest, the problem will be solved, and all these moans about the Constitution are simply the screech of disgruntled outcasts.
        Do not worry about our territory, it will not decrease. request

              Tell me, please, where in an attempt to protect the Russian taiga from deforestation did you see "American patriotism"? Do you have completely cereal in your head or something?

                The question was asked not for you, but for an American citizen, judging by his posts, an outspoken Russophobe. Therefore, I wanted to clarify the details.
                But for some reason you answered. Is the hat lit up on you? And since you asked about cereal in your head .. I’m now on the Military Review website, and you? On the portal "natural science for elementary school"?

                About the "care of the taiga."
                In the article you use purely populist tricks: use fake information, or the so-called "myths".
                What for?
                Returning to Military Review, the question is:
                Mr. Marzhetsky, are you sure you wanted to help the Siberian Taiga, and not (again) pay attention to the mistakes of the Russian leadership?

      Here are the interesting people, Putin’s nuclear electorate, people. All you have to do is not their own business: philologist Sechin - oil, journalist Rogozin - space, furniture maker Serdyukov - the army and helicopters, etc. With the corresponding result.
      Everyone must do their job in accordance with their position. Journalism is the activity of collecting, summarizing and disseminating information, which is what I do every day, talking about real problems and, as far as possible, giving some recommendations for correction. And I'm doing my job well.
      That is why you and your kind consider it possible to advise me to do someone else's work for others? Engage in lawmaking, treat patients with coronavirus, go to fight for the Donbass, etc.?
      Maybe the problem is you, you did not think? Here you are personally sitting here and from morning to evening write footcloths of comments. Maybe you should pay more time for your direct work? Or is commenting your main job? wink

    In fact, the authorities have long stated that everything is in order with the forest.
    And dissatisfied - let them monitor and write letters themselves. Green, to the prosecutor’s office, to the ministries, to the president, anywhere ...
    I have not heard about the results of such letters.

    Taiga burned for thousands of years and will burn. This problem cannot be completely solved physically. And the rest is not a matter of the Constitution, but of laws. With this to the deputies.

    ... animals and birds die

    - birds are also animals!

    Let’s then add to the Basic Law clauses on the need to protect the Russian forest and write down specific mechanisms in it.

    Quite a reasonable suggestion. In general, it would be nice to send specials to protect Russian forests. divisions of the Russian Guard, since the Government is categorically opposed to the expansion of the staff of foresters.

      And why in the Constitution "are clauses on the need to protect the Russian forest and specific mechanisms."? Moreover, "specific mechanisms" are not constant, will we make endless changes?
