He also noted that a number of measures taken by all interested government agencies have already reduced the level of illegal logging in the forests of the region by 37 percent compared to last year. However, this problem cannot be completely eradicated. Nevertheless, the fight against illegal logging will continue: under the strict control of the Director of the forestry Department of the Sverdlovsk region Oleg Sandakov will strengthen patrols and interdepartmental cooperation, conduct operational and preventive measures on the roads, check the enterprises engaged in the processing of wood, for the legality of its origin, increase the material and technical support of the state forest inspectors.

A comprehensive analysis of the situation with illegal logging on the territory of the forest Fund of the Sverdlovsk region in 2018 was presented by the Deputy Director of the regional forestry Department Alexey Pazhetnov. In 2018, 344 cases of illegal logging were registered, the volume of illegally cut timber amounted to 36.5 thousand cubic meters.
