The epidemic of bark beetles swept the north and west of the Moscow region.
Environmentalists are sounding the alarm. Bark beetles occupied the north and west of the Moscow region. The head of the Greenpeace Forest Program, Alexei Yaroshenko, cited the following figures: “In order to understand the scale of the problem, I propose to compare the numbers: according to our estimates, the fires of 2010 killed more than 80 thousand hectares of forest, and the bark beetle in 2012 would destroy about 100 thousand hectares”.
The editors of Uznayvse.ru believe that this is a small problem and can be solved by environmentalists.
