The Ononsky District Court in Transbaikalia found a 36-year-old local resident guilty of destroying and damaging forest plantations as a result of careless handling of fire. The damage was estimated at almost half a million rubles.

The court established that on the afternoon of May 29, a drunk man walked to the shepherd's camp near the village of Kuranzha. Near the forest, he gathered dry branches and made a fire, then, without extinguishing it, continued on his way. He also threw an unmarked cigarette butt into the dry grass in the direction of travel. As a result, the fire spread throughout the Kubukhaisky forestry and destroyed forest plantations.

According to the press service of the regional prosecutor’s office, the court found the man guilty and sentenced him to two years imprisonment, and also recovered from him the full amount of the damage. The verdict has not yet entered into force.
