Whose cones in the forest

The FFA has published a rather interesting letter. In a letter dated February 25, 2016 No. EC-07-54/1985 he explained to the forest authorities of subjects of the Russian Federation and its territorial bodies that the assignment located on the lands of forest Fund of windfall wood and wind-fallen trees should be considered as theft. This means that any person or marubishi najlepsi, for example, of wood lying in the forest dead trees, from the point of view of FFA is lecanoraceae and must be brought to the established current legislation of responsibility. To what, depends on the situation and on the interpretation of laws specific officials.

That is, whatever the purpose, if you are a local resident, summer resident, a tourist or a hunter in the woods, got a fire for any amount of dry wood or fallen trees, according to the Federal forestry Agency, committed a crime, and it is administrative or criminal, will be determined only by the amount of damage (less or more than 5000 RUB.)
For calculation of this damage is proposed to use the resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation from may 8, 2007 № 273 “About calculation of the extent of damage caused to forests due to violation of forest legislation”. Given the “rates” any fire from collected branches in the woods can draw on criminal article 158 of the criminal code. According to the article, the theft, that is secret plunder of another’s property, shall be punished by a fine in the amount up to 80,000 roubles or the salary or other income of the convicted person for a period up to six months, or by compulsory works for a term up to 360 hours, or correctional labor for up to one year, or by restriction of liberty for a term up to two years, or compulsory works for the term up to two years, or with arrest for the term up to four months, or by deprivation of liberty for a term up to two years.

Don’t want to discuss that cleaning up fallen trees — the effect is rather useful than harmful, that traditional hunting trip, camping trip or camp without a fire is unthinkable. What’s the next step — obtaining a special permit for a campfire with payment and limit on the amount of wood? The license for the deadwood for a fire on the river?
It seems that the citizens of our country constantly and systematically squeezed out of the forest, all new and new restrictions are forcing people to restrict their freedoms, at this rate we will soon receive vouchers to pick berries and mushrooms, and maybe will have to pay for the collection of herbarium pupils?
Remember the cartoon from my childhood, where the wolf forbade other animals to collect, including cones, in the end only him and the bumps went…
