The emergency mode will be introduced in a number of territories of the Perm Territory due to the widespread distribution of Sosnovsky’s hogweed. This order was given by the head of the region Dmitry Makhonin.
“I instructed to work out the introduction of an emergency regime in places of mass distribution of Sosnovsky’s hogweed. So far, these are Perm, Perm, Dobryansky, Krasnokamsky and Nytvensky districts, ”Makhonin said in Telegram.
Among the reasons for this decision, he named the failure to meet the deadlines and technology for processing a dangerous plant, which leads to the rapid growth of the weed. Makhonin also noted that the regional authorities annually allocate money to the municipalities, but the destruction of the cow parsnip is not carried out en masse, but pointwise.
Hogweed in the Kama region littered about 59 thousand hectares of land. The state of emergency will allow to begin its destruction in all areas, including private ones, the governor will explain. Land owners will soon receive notifications about the need to clean the cow parsnip. Perhaps the equipment for this will be provided free of charge.
