Putin: Russia risks losing forest

Illegal deforestation is the scourge of many countries that have this valuable natural resource. She did not pass Russia.




Speaking at the Human Rights Council, Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that the state has so far failed to restore order in the field of forest protection.

In particular, the president said:

I have to admit that the state’s actions in this area, in the field of forest protection in this case, are ineffective, the government is not able to put things in order. A very corrupt sphere, extremely and very criminalized


The head of state noted that the main deforestation takes place where this forest is easy to export from - along roads and settlements.

Vladimir Putin bitterly stated that if this continues further, then soon there will be no forests left in the Far East and in the central part in regions accessible to humans.

The President promised human rights defenders that he would consider and implement any of their proposals to protect forests from illegal logging, if these proposals are deemed effective.

A vivid example of what happens to forests in the absence of control by the authorities is Ukraine, where forests in the Rivne region are predatoryly destroyed by amber miners, and in the Carpathians, the relict forest is cut for export.

        He has long been on another planet. He does not know what is happening in his state.

    The most effective means of protecting forests has always been the creation of nature reserves.

    Really strange statement! Woke up or lifted eyelids ??? Take a look at Siberia. What is Siberia, Central Russia cut down without a twinge of conscience. The prosecutor's office initiates proceedings and complains of uncontrolled deforestation (theft) of the forest. Because it’s impossible to control. There is no need to even guess. This lawlessness is lobbying from above. It remains to find the one who does this. Well, or the people themselves to stand up to protect their forests, since the power in our country can only express extreme concern.

      so, what is next? Well, you caught a team of illegal loggers, then what? call the police, ugh police, dash off to the prosecutor’s office indicating personalities and what? but nothing ... here the Criminal Code protects the authorities and criminals, and not the people, their rights and their property.

    Well, if the state and the authorities are incapable of putting things in order, then why the heck is needed, such power, headed by the current president!?

    This is the result of the work of the government, which does not know how to manage, and, perhaps, for large bribes, specifically creates anarchy around this issue, or something else, as during the war with Chechnya, when the Chechens received information about the actions of the Russian troops and took measures, as a result of which they died Russian guys.

    And the patriots claimed that the strong deforestation is an invention of the liberals.
    Putin recognized the liberals?

    He turns to human rights defenders for help. He doesn’t rely on his government, because they are faced with other tasks, to optimize everything and everything. And at the very head, the campaign ceased to develop a thought process, and this is evident from the last press conference.
