In Kamchatka, social tension began to grow, connected with the organization of a record salmon path. Residents of Kamchatka criticize the authorities for refusing to grant them the right to free fishing, and representatives of indigenous peoples face harassment when trying to harvest fish, according to the next published issue of the EastRussia bulletin.

In Kamchatka, this year, the richest salmon pathn for the last 110 years has turned out, but the region was not ready for it: it lacks the fleet and processing facilities. As a result, hundreds of tons of Kamchatka salmon are rotting on the peninsula. At the same time, the authorities do not allow free fishing to all residents of the region, and the police have already initiated more than 100 criminal cases for illegal fishing.

Against the backdrop of a record salmon path, there was a resonant conflict between border guards and indigenous residents of Kamchatka because of fish. In the Ust-Bolsheretsky region in the high seas, high-speed coast guard boats of the Border Guard Service of the Russian Federal Security Service were completely destroyed by rubber inflatable boats of Aboriginal people. Later, a meeting of the community of indigenous peoples of the Ust-Bolsheretsky district took place, where people expressed their indignation over the incident in particular and attitude towards the indigenous inhabitants of Kamchatka in general. People noted that they were "turned into a rogue in the land of their ancestors", that they have nothing to live on, often there is nothing to eat, that they do not have a job. As a result, the Krai prosecutor's office sent inquiries with the request to investigate the situation to all possible bodies of the prosecutor's office of the Kamchatka Territory - from the military to the environmental, as well as to the deputy minister of fisheries of the regional government.
