Chinese greenhouse growers in Khakassia accused of chemical pollution

In June this year the Russian inspectors of land management department of Rosselkhoznadzor (Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) for Republic of Khakassia and Tuva conducted surveys of agricultural land 0.2 km north of the village Tasheba. Previously, the land was used for greenhouses, where the Chinese citizens were growing vegetables. According to the press service of Rosselkhoznadzor for Republic of Khakassia and Tuva, 63 soil samples from 35 plots were selected for research on pollution by hazardous chemicals.

According to the results of laboratory tests carried out by Krasnoyarsk Reference Center of Rosselkhoznadzor, a chemical contaminant hazard class 1 was found in the soils of two plots. Based on the obtained results the land owner will be sued for damages caused to the soil as the object of protection of the environment.
