It does not do without tragedies; But if in April 2014 the misfortune was due to a single forest fire, Who moved to the military warehouse Near the village of Bolshaya Tura in the Karymsky district, then in April 2015, fires were burnt with almost no resistance from a dozen villages, leaving hundreds of people homeless.

According to the EastRussia source in the forest sector of the Trans-Baikal Territory, the federal center has delegated the authority to extinguish fires in the regions, but they can not provide sufficient funding: "The State Forest Service of the region and its contractors for extinguishing fires and air patrolling forests do not have enough equipment and people because of Unavailability of the Federal Forestry Agency to finance them. The money that is is not enough for quality work to prevent and extinguish forest fires. "

This is also confirmed by the trial, during which the prosecutor's office proved, that the contractors for extinguishing fires in the Transbaikal are not equipped with technology, and obliged Rosleskhoz to finance the staffing of the park. But, according to the source, the case did not go well: the State Forest Service under Balagura did not wish to collect money from the Rosleskhoz in court.
