The Only Thing Ecodefenders Need Is Sensation, the head of the state institution "Roads of Russia" Thinks

"There's an impression that they (defenders of Khimkinsky wood) need only sensation and not constructive decision of the question. If you have calculations, substantiations - create working group, solve problems within the limits of legal field. Obviously they have different targets", - the head of Federal official body "Roads of Russia" Andrey Zhuravlyov commented situation with protests against deforestation.

As he said, situation with appearance of "people in masks" is in some way favourable to "defenders" as "the next scandal" is obviously necessary to them. He underlined that forest in Moscow Region is often cut down for construction of the roads, however, for some reason area around Sheremetyevo become "not the only pebble on the beach" for ecodefenders, "Interfax" transfers.

Zhuravlyov didn't comment mass fights and detention of active workers but noticed that the contractor had the right to attract special people to protect equipment as there were already cases of arson and damage of its property by unknown persons.

At the same time the head of "Roads of Russia" called both sides of the conflict to act within the limits of law. "There's one condition from our side - to act strictly within the limits of legal field, don't create conflict situations", - Zhuravlyov said.

Struggle for Khimkinsky Wood (Chronicle of Events)

Khimkinsky wood is located in five kilometres from Moscow between city of Khimki, village Starbeevo, river of Klyazma and International highway (from Leningrad highway to airport "Sheremetyevo"). Wood occupies a site with area almost in 1 thousand hectares and is a part of a forest shelter belt of the capital.

Cutting down of Khimkinsky wood on the right side from International highway started on July, 15th. About 7 hectares were cut down without any documents. Defenders managed to suspend illegal works. Active workers of the movement count on check of the State Office of Public Prosecutor - earlier they sent their corresponding petition. According to defenders, cutting down and building project, under the law, should be co-ordinated with the regional government, however, there's coordination procedure and consequently, cutting down is illegal.

Let's remind, on March, 27th, 2010 the cassation board of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation recognized government verdict about transfer of a part of Khimkinsky wood under highway. The governmental document from November, 5th, 2009 says that "a piece of wood fund of 144,8821 hectares are translated to the category of the earths of industry, power, transport, communication, broadcasting, TV, computer science, the earths for maintenance of space activity, the earths of defence, safety and of other special purpose such as construction of highway".

Verdict to the Supreme Court were sent by three defenders - Eugenie Chirikova, Serafima Naumocheva and Andrey Margulev. In their opinion, there are alternative variants of placing of the road, therefore it is absolutely unessential to give a part of the wood under it. Such organizations as Greenpeace and the World Fund of Wild Nature also acted against cutting down.

Ecologists declare that the decision about building was accepted with the roughest infringements of law. After a set of references in local and federal authorities ecologists declared intention to send appeal against the decision of authorities on transfer of 150 hectares of Khimkinsky forest park from earths of wood fund into the earths of transport for building of the first site of paid highway in the Strasbourg court.

Meanwhile it's considered in Public chamber of the Russian Federation that cutting down of Khimkinsky wood for building of a high-speed highway Moscow - St.-Petersburg showed ignorance by authorities of opinion of public and became a call to civil society in Russia.

"More than 20 thousand Russians, tens non-governmental and state organizations supported preservation of Khimkinsky wood. This cutting down - call not only to inhabitants of Khimki and ecologists but also to all civil society of Russia", - the director of Institute of Steady Development of the Russian Federation Vladimir Zaharov said. As he said, cutting down showed that "opinion of the public and professional ecologists is once again ignored".
