Decision of the Coordinating Council of the Prioksko-Terrasny Biosphere Reserve of the UNESCO MAB Program on the construction of the road

The members of the Coordinating Council of the Prioksko-Terrasny Biosphere Reserve appeal to the leadership of the Moscow Region and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of Russia with a request to promote the implementation of the biosphere program and to prevent the construction of a through passage through the Prioksko-Terrasny Biosphere Reserve and provide guarantees for the preservation of nature and the formed social order.
It is necessary to make a choice – either technocratic development of the territory, construction of a road and associated infrastructure or conservation of the biosphere reserve, development of tourism, recreation, green economy and agriculture. Local residents and employees of the reserve unequivocally choose the second option of sustainable development in accordance with the current legislation and international obligations of Russia.
