Russia: Local government to eliminate Chinese greenhouses in Khakassia
The head of the region stated that the results of the fight against illegal "Chinese
greenhouse business" are minimal, despite the fact that the year ends soon. "Our task is to to remove these greenhouses and withdraw land from those who poison our people and our land. It's a question of safety of our citizens, and there is nothing more important. Therefore, I demand to act firmly and decisively. They are not businessmen, they are barbarians. They squeeze everything out of the soil leaving behind barren land where even grass can’t grow,"- emphasised the official.
Deputy Head of Khakassia Vladimir Kraft, who is engaged in the issue of illegal migration, reported that for the last five months 247 illegal immigrants from China have been found and 26 Russian citizens have been prosecuted for the provision of work and accommodation to them. More than 70 greenhouses have been destroyed. The head of the region demanded from the heads of municipalities not to allow Chinese farmers to their territory, considering it their area of responsibility.
"The law allows us to remove land from agricultural production and deprive land ownership. No wholesalers should trade in such vegetables, especially not supply them to schools, kindergartens and hospitals. We have the understanding and support of the Prosecutor's Office and the Interior Ministry. Khakassia can feed itself. Our summer residents and entrepreneurs are able to provide the Republic with high-quality and environmentally friendly products,"- said Viktor Zimin.
