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 forest management bodies in the Far East, as before, do not fully ensure the adequate staffing and equipment of subordinate institutions with fire extinguishing equipment and equipment. To a large extent, this is facilitated by the inefficient practice of the Federal Forestry Agency allocating federal subsidies to the fulfillment of powers in the field of forest relations, including measures to protect forests from fires, according to the press service of the Ministry of Development and Development of the Far East Federal District Yury Gulyagin.

So, 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.

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

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 of Eastern and Eastern Development reported.
