Shameless deforestation is a crime against the future – Bereziuk

The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, Oleksiy Pavlenko, and the chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction, Oleh Bereziuk, accompanied by a non-governmental organization “Green Forest” examined Slavske forestry.

During the examination of the forestry area, which is located near the village of Volosianka in the Lviv region, gross violations of economics management were revealed. After the examination the Minister held a meeting with the leadership of the relevant region.

“We have seen the terrible mismanagement in the form of an uncontrolled deforestation. In addition, probably wood is being stolen as well. According to the public, all the activities of the unit are covert – on can learn neither about the area of a coupe, nor about the scope. There is a complete lack of technical process, production standards, which leads to destruction of the valleys, mountain areas, river beds which will recover over the next decades only,” said the parliamentarian.

In addition, such an irresponsible economic activity destroys the infrastructure of the region, because the overloaded timber trucks destroy the roads.

“The saddest thing is that it is done by the leaders who hide behind different values. It is very important for these processes to be monitored by the public, and for the authorities to stop this mutual covering-up system in the sphere of timber logging and to uncompromisingly react to the violations and blatant nature torturing. Central and local law enforcement agencies must strictly punish such violations,” said the MP.

“I hope that the decision of the Minister will be strict and uncompromising,” added Bereziuk.
