Two people were found guilty for the illegal felling of timber on a large scale in a Beloretsk court. The court established that at the beginning of 2019, the defendants hired two local residents to cut trees on the allotment provided to them in the Ishlinsky district forest. At the same time, they misled the loggers about the cutting area, as a result of which the men exceeded the permitted felling volumes and additionally cut down pines with a volume of about 500 cubic meters. Two band saws were also seized.
