The head of the State Duma’s committee on ecology, Vladimir Burmatov, said during an online conference that he would take up the case of Okha Mayor Sergei Gusev. He was detained by forestry inspectors with a large consignment of shot ducks and geese.

According to the Ministry of Ecology of the Sakhalin Oblast, the mayor of Okha and a friend were found in an aero boat during a raid. After the inspection, more than 12 geese and 45 ducks were found in males, while among the prey there were 19 females. The shooting of females in spring, as well as hunting with swimming equipment, are prohibited during this period. In addition, this amount of game exceeds the daily allowable production. Sergey Gusev himself said that he was picking up wounded animals that other hunters did not get.

During an online conference, Vladimir Burmatov said he would forward a request to law enforcement agencies. According to him, taking into account the official position, such facts should be stopped immediately.
