In the Far East, control over the development of forests should be strengthened and an assessment of the effectiveness of woodworking projects should be developed. The Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Yuri Trutnev, insists on this, who gave the relevant instructions after visiting the wood processing enterprises of the Trans-Baikal Territory.

The Deputy Prime Minister noted that now in Russia practically prohibitive measures have been introduced for the export of roundwood. Last year, the export duty was 25%, in this 40%, in 2020, it will rise to 60% and in 2021, to 80%. This will allow developing timber processing in the country. Already, such enterprises receive the right to apply export duties in the amount of 6,5%.

As for the loggers of Transbaikalia, the audit showed a lack of control by the authorities and law enforcement agencies. According to the information of the regional Ministry of Environment, the damage from illegal deforestation in the region has doubled over the past three years and exceeds 550 million rubles.

Yury Trutnev recommended to the Prosecutor General's Office to inspect compliance with legislation in the field of logging and sale of timber in the Far Eastern Federal District. The deputy chairman also instructed the federal Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of Economic Development to analyze the effectiveness of measures to increase export customs duties on roundwood.
