The ongoing probe into the construction works at the Malakhovsky forest in the Moscow Region is put under control in the Investigative Committee Headquarters

Today, one of the federal television channels reported an attempt at "barbaric" construction works at the famous Malakhovsky forest. The people of the Moscow Region are trying to save it. According to the report, hundreds of trees have already been destroyed, construction of roads and parking lots is beginning. Despite the local officials claiming only diseased trees are being eliminated as part of the existing rehabilitation programme, journalists and local citizen claim the opposite, insisting on the illegal activity of the developer.

The Main Investigations Directorate of the IC of Russia in the Moscow Region has already organised a probe into this fact. At the same time, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed the management of the agency's regional unit to thoroughly examine all circumstances of the "rehabilitation" in question and analyze the citizens' arguments aired in the report. The ongoing probe and its results has been put under control.
