Deductions to the budget of the Russian Federation for the use of forests increased by almost 7 billion rubles

Deductions to the federal budget for the use of forests increased by 6,8 billion rubles over the year. In total, 28,2 billion rubles were received - the plan was fulfilled by 90%.

As IAA EastRussia was informed in the press service of Roslesinforg, another 14,8 billion rubles were sent to the regional budgets. Most of the payments were made up of rent, the rest - the use of forest resources and fines. Currently, there are slightly more than 91 thousand forest plots on lease, the total area of ​​the leased forest is more than 200 million hectares, or 19% of the total forest fund in Russia.

In the first half of the year, almost 746 million rubles of fines were charged for illegal activity in the forests. Most of this amount was reimbursed voluntarily. The debt on payments for forest use decreased in 41 subjects by 705 million rubles.

As the director of Roslesinforg Pavel Chashchin noted, the development of the sector of public services in the field of forestry will make it possible to make an additional contribution of the industry to the growth rate of the Russian economy.

“We intend to increase transparency through digitalization and the introduction of industry information systems. The system of accounting of transactions with timber LesEGAIS has already been modernized, ahead of the electronic forest register and the creation of the FSIS of the forest complex. These and other measures for the development and decriminalization of the forest business can make timber processing in Russia one of the most efficient sectors of the economy, ”he added.
