The Arbitration Appeal Court overturned the decision on the case of sanitary cuttings in the reserve Tukolon of the Irkutsk region. The sale of timber harvested there was declared illegal.

Last year, the investigative committee opened a criminal case on the fact of felling of relict trees. According to law enforcement officers, instead of sick and old trees, healthy and especially valuable specimens were cut down in the reserve. The damage to the forest fund was estimated at more than 700 million rubles.

At the same time, the Irkutsk Arbitration Court recognized the contract for the sale of forest plantations derived from logging as legal. The environmental prosecutor’s office and the Federal Forestry Agency disagreed. Their claim was satisfied in the appellate court.

In addition, in early June, the criminal case was detained minister natural resources area Sergey Sheverda. His charged in excess of official powers.
