In the Sakhalin region, they abandoned the idea of ​​cutting down the forest for the construction of the Mountain Riviera residential complex. It was planned on the southwestern slope of Mount Bolshevik near the capital of the island. For residents, this area was recreational and they opposed its destruction. 

Local authorities support the protest. This was reported by the press service of the regional government. Governor Valery Limarenko sent a notification to the Far East Development Corporation. The low-rise housing project involves cutting down 80 hectares of forest on a mountainside, which, according to experts, could lead to mudflows, flooding of the southern part of the city and air pollution. 

In addition, deforestation will affect the tourist attractiveness of the city, which is now located next to a corner of wildlife. The government understands that legally this land is not suitable for residential development, it is impossible to obtain the necessary status without conclusions and examinations.
