MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Udmurt nature protection interdistrict prosecutor’s office checked compliance with the legislation on the protection of wildlife.
It has been established that the Electric Networks of Udmurtia Limited Liability Company and the administration of the Uvinsky District municipality operate power lines passing through specially protected natural areas of regional significance – the state natural complex reserves Lost Key and Oblastnovsky.
In violation of the requirements of federal legislation, reinforced concrete poles and insulators for power lines are not equipped with bird protection devices. This creates a threat of death of birds, including rare and listed in the Red Book, as well as damage to equipment, which leads to interruptions in the power supply of the population.
The environmental prosecutor filed a lawsuit with the court for imposing on LLC “Electric Networks of Udmurtia” and the administration of the municipal formation “Uvinsky District” the obligation to equip overhead power lines with bird protection devices.
The prosecutor’s demands were satisfied.
The defendants entered into an agreement for the supply of bird protection devices for power lines. Further execution of the judgment is under the control of the prosecutor’s office.
