The last forestry strategy in Ukraine ended in 2015.
About this on the program “Freedom of expression” Savik Shuster, commenting on the consequences of the current elements in the western regions of Ukraine, said the president of the National Agency of Forest Resources of Ukraine Andriy Zablotsky.
“Unfortunately, the last document that regulated the forestry strategy expired in 2015. For the past five years, forestry has not evolved at all. No document has been adopted to determine where, in fact, “The moving industry, which will be the policy of forest restoration, what will be the policy regarding logging, what will be the policy regarding the Carpathian region,” he said.
According to him, in the near future, there are plans to initiate a broad national dialogue on these issues.
“These are the questions that should be included in this strategy (forestry development, – note.) We plan to initiate a broad national dialogue in the near future, to attract experts, heads of state, members of the people and all those linked to forest policy. “
Zablotsky noted that the industry’s development strategy should include a period of at least 2030.
“As soon as I took office, we tackled the questions of developing a forestry strategy to determine where the industry will evolve, at least until 2030,” he said.

As a reminder, on June 23 in the western regions of the country due to heavy rain, severe flooding began. Hundreds of kilometers of roads, dozens of bridges and kilometers of bank fortifications have been destroyed, hundreds of people have been resettled.
This week, the Prosecutor’s office of the Ivano-Frankivsk region launched criminal proceedings on the facts of the massive destruction of the plant world, which probably led to a natural disaster in the territory of Ivano-Frankivsk and others regions. The ministry notes that in June 2020, a record amount of precipitation fell on the Carpathian territory, as a result of which 3 people died, more than 10 thousand residential buildings were flooded, 150 km of roads and 90 bridges were been destroyed, 586 roads and 169 bridges were damaged, 4,146 m were destroyed shore protection. Their appearance was probably made possible by the massive destruction of plant objects, deforestation, inadequate forestry activities and the inability of the authorities to implement environmental protection measures.
Currently, priority investigation actions are underway. A preliminary investigation within the framework of criminal proceedings has been entrusted to the investigation service of the USBU in the region.
