In Sakhalin, the official responsible for the protection of aquatic biological resources, law enforcement officers accuse of abuse of power. He is suspected of falsifying accounting documents to conceal the illegal fishing of one of the companies.

According to the press service of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, the official falsified the information that the ship's captain allegedly notified the control and oversight bodies about the excessive by-catch of juveniles and the change in the places of extraction of aquatic biological resources. This allowed the fishery to avoid an administrative fine.

The damage from illegal activities of the company is estimated at 60 million rubles. The organization fished in the South Kuril region. For abuse of power, the official faces up to four years in prison.
