To combat black loggers in Russia, they plan to create a federal service of forest inspectors. According to Roslesinforg, most often the forest is cut down under the guise of sanitary felling.

As they write "Ведомости", The largest volumes of illegal logging are now observed in the Siberian Federal District, in especially in the Irkutsk region... The total volume is 10-30 million cubic meters of wood for 20-60 million rubles.

This forest is not counted anywhere, and there is no federal levy or sales taxes paid for it. Of this number, about 10% are black loggers and are felled without documents. The rest falls on the so-called sanitary felling - commercial timber is cut under the pretext of recreational activities.

More than half of the illegally procured resources in Russia are in Siberia, of which the Irkutsk Region is the leader. Here, 37% are cut down in the federal district. Because of this, the reduction of forest annually exceeds the restoration by 450 thousand hectares.

The new structure will be able to supervise the timber industry. It is under the guidance of the forest inspector that field inspections will be carried out, they will also be empowered to fine violators, stop sanitary felling. Inspectors will not depend on regional authorities.
