Imperfection of the order of distribution of subventions makes it difficult to fulfill powers in the sphere of forest protection from fires in the Far Eastern Federal District

The state management bodies of the forest fund in the Far East still do not fully ensure the proper staffing and equipping of subordinate institutions with fire extinguishing means and equipment. To a large extent, this is facilitated by the ineffective practice of distribution by Rosleskhoz of federal subventions for the implementation of powers in the field of forest relations, including measures to protect forests from fires, the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East reports the words of Deputy Prosecutor General for the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Gulyagin.

Thus, according to Gulyagin, state support for forestry in the district is eight point seven tenths of rubles per hectare of forests, while the national average is twenty six point seven tenths of rubles. This shows the lack of funding in the forestry sector, including measures to protect forests from fires.

The dependence on federal funding, the imperfection of the procedure for the distribution of subventions make it difficult for the regional authorities to exercise the delegated powers in this area. This is clearly confirmed, for example, by the presence of accounts payable of the constituent entities of the Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District for extinguishing forest fires. According to the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, the average annual actual costs of extinguishing them within five years amount to more than nine hundred million rubles, and only fifty-three percent is financed by means of subventions from the federal budget.

The issue of ensuring the security of the state in the economic sphere was discussed today at a joint meeting of the board of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation and the Ministry for the Development of the Far East, the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East reported.
