The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case on the fact of exporting timber for 35 million rubles in the Irkutsk region. Together with the regional department of the FSB, three additional episodes of smuggling were identified.

According to the press service of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, in 2016 in Usolye-Sibirskoye, a timber export company entered into three contracts for the supply of coniferous wood outside Russia. Employees of the enterprise submitted false documents on the species of trees to the customs and removed valuable timber worth 35 million rubles.

This week, the Irkutsk District Court recognized the leader and seven participants as the largest in the region gangs of "black" lumberjacks guilty of a series of grave and especially grave crimes in the field of illegal logging. The gang was detained in 2015. The total damage from their actions amounted to almost 18 million rubles.
