The Rada has approved laws raising fines and jail sentences for people convicted of cutting and exporting raw logs

The Rada has approved laws raising fines and jail sentences for people convicted of cutting and exporting raw logs. Smuggling logs across the border can draw jail terms up to 5 years. Illegal logging on a large scale can lead to fines up to $210,000 and jail terms up to 3 years. Seeking to promote its own furniture and wood products industry, Ukraine banned exports of raw logs 18 months ago.
