In Buryatia, they were categorically against the plans of the Chinese company to create a sawmill complex on the territory of one of the districts of the republic, the latest issue of the EastRussia bulletin says.

The Chinese company MTK-Jankey announced its intention to conclude a lease of forest in the Zakamensky district for 49 years and create a sawmill complex with an investment of 753 million rubles in the region. The Chinese are interested in cutting down larch and its subsequent processing. As a result, local authorities supported the project, but residents protested. Thus, local residents note that the Zakamensky district is already an ecologically unfavorable territory, and plans for deforestation are contrary to the program of protection and protection of Lake Baikal.

The rivers of the mountain Zakamensky district, including those areas where deforestation is planned, enter the catchment system of Lake Baikal. The destruction of the forest threatens the shallowing of rivers and irreversible changes in the natural environment. There are problems for the population of the Zakamensky district, which collects wild plants and pine nuts in the forest, which can be identified for cutting. As a result, until the project is approved, and in the district a public council will be established to monitor the implementation of this investment project.

A detailed analysis of this and other relevant topics can be found in the weekly bulletin EastRussia (https://www.eastrussia.ru/subscribe/).
