President: Systemic deforestation in the Carpathians stopped

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the illegal systemic deforestation in the Carpathians has been stopped.

"I think that it has been stopped completely as a system… But there are many isolated cases," Zelensky said at a press conference after participation in the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Ecology", an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He noted that the authorities had tightened control over deforestation, and the situation improved. According to Zelensky, the forest is being cleared and felled but the process is not as large-scale as before.

As reported, on November 19, 2019, President Zelensky signed a law banning continuous felling on mountain slopes in the fir-beech forests of the Carpathian region.
