Under the pretext of building a “fake” pulp and paper mill, the authorities of the TRANS-Baikal region are going to open quick access to China in the most sparsely populated place

Under the pretext of the construction of the Amazarsky timber industry (including a pulp mill with a capacity of about 400 thousand tons of pulp per year), the authorities of the TRANS-Baikal territory are going to equip the Russian – Chinese checkpoint Pokrovka-Logukhe on the Amur river. TASS reported on January 31, 2019, for this complex in the vicinity of the village of Amazar, where for many years the plant has been “built”, in principle, there are no forest resources – there were few of them because of the extremely harsh climatic conditions and permafrost, and the most valuable have long been plundered or burned.

The same situation is in the neighboring regions of the TRANS-Baikal territory and the Amur region – so there are no prospects for long-term sustainable work at the plant promised by China. But if China, under these promises, is given the right to build a bridge across the Amur near the former settlement of Pokrovka, it will be the owner of a very rapid exit to the TRANS – Siberian railway and the Amur highway, that is, to the two main transport communications connecting the Russian Far East with the rest of the country.

This exit will be in one of the most sparsely populated places of the TRANS-Siberian railway. In the usual situation, this new checkpoint can be used for a much more massive export of natural resources to China (including timber – its valuable assortment is economically justified to carry from much greater distances than the balances – raw materials for cellulose); and if something happens, the “mighty neighbor” will be in the hands of b from the two main objects of the Russian far Eastern infrastructure. Reference: the authorities of Transbaikalia will equip the checkpoint between Russia and China through the Amur.

In turn, the PRC will Finance the construction of a bridge across the Amur river Pokrovka–Loguhe – a former temporary (seasonal) checkpoint across the state border of Russia and China, where raw timber harvested in the border areas of Russia was exported to China through the ice crossing the Amur in 1998-2008. The export of wood raw materials through the Cover to China played a significant role in the devastation of the most accessible and productive forests of the Eastern regions of the TRANS-Baikal territory and the Western regions of the Amur region. References to previous reports on this topic: the Federation Council recommends that the government of the Russian Federation take a decision aimed at increasing the scale of Chinese logging in Siberia and the Far East, the largest in the TRANS-Baikal investment timber industry dummy (Amazarsky LPK) may burst in the near future Amazar deception: during the “construction of a new PPM” the population of Amazar decreased by more than 12%

The construction of The Amazar pulp mill in the TRANS-Baikal region threatens the complete destruction of productive pine forests. There is nothing in the plans for the development of the timber industry of Transbaikalia until 2018, except for fantasies about the Amazar Central Bank about the need to stop all major investment projects related to the development of forests of the TRANS-Baikal territory: forest resources that could be used are completely eaten by fires. How in Transbaikalia do they mock the idea of intensification of forestry: is it not a Scam for the example of the Amazar cellulose plant? The Chinese company promises to build a pulp mill where there is almost no suitable raw material.
