In Primorye, the channel for the smuggling of valuable wood species has been blocked. 9,7 thousand cubic meters of sawn timber from Mongolian oak and Manchu ash were exported to China. The damage is estimated at 148,5 million rubles.

According to the press service of the Vladivostok Customs, members of the organized crime group bought lumber and exported them to China through shell companies. They declared themselves as suppliers of timber, but in fact did not deal with logging. The department notes that Manchurian ash and Mongolian oak are included in the list of objects of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna.

On the facts of smuggling, two criminal cases have been instituted under part 3 Art. 226.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal movement of strategically important resources on a large scale across the EAEU customs border by an organized group). Suspects face up to 12 years in prison.
