The volume of illegally felled timber this year has decreased five times in Transbaikalia (2,4 thousand cubic meters). Among the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, this is the most noticeable decline. 

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of Roslesinforg, in the Khabarovsk Territory, illegal logging has decreased four times (643 cubic meters). In general, the volume of illegally harvested timber in the Russian Federation has decreased threefold and amounted to almost 300 thousand cubic meters. Also, the number of illegal logging cases decreased by one and a half times - about 1,4 thousand.

As the director of Roslesinforg Pavel Chashchin noted, such indicators are a record for the last decade.

“This victory is explained by the strengthening of the existing preventive and control and supervisory measures to decriminalize the forestry complex, the launch of an upgraded version of LesEGAIS, the inclusion of not only space images, but also artificial intelligence in monitoring,” he added.

Most of all this year black loggers managed to illegally harvest timber in the Irkutsk region - 100 thousand cubic meters.
