“Heroic deeds” on a summer morning
30.07.2012 00:00I do not want to get nervous in a hot weather, but all the same they get me! On early Saturday morning at 7.00 some dupes brought a car with a rig to the alley along Kodor avenue very close to the future residence of the Russian Ambassador, and cut a cypress, a pine and also a flourishing oleander. These people do not care a straw that the trees had been planted in Lakoba’s time, theу do not care about the history and ecology of their native country either. But they do not think either that this is the most visiting place of the Abkhaz capital, and a public interest is just an empty sound for them.
Even though their brains work for the other side - they chose the time when no one drives in the road, it was a week-end, they covered the stumps with land as it has always been so. But they got lazy to take out sawed down trees, as it will go out so! And of course, it will go out so I do not doubt. They cleaned the way to an incomprehensible construction, perhaps they would like to make an observation pit for cars, but they do not care that this is not the place for it.
Other specialists also passed to a morning time – it is secure and it is not so hot to work. At the same time two youngsters in front of a swimming tourist elegantly picked her bag and slowly left. It is curios that it happened just in 100 meters from sawyers - a criminal loading at this small place on a Saturday morning evidently was higher then the norm.
A pair of months ago the workers of a green economy told me that a fine for an illegally cut tree is 12000 rubles. And this somebody says stops those who would like to turn Abkhazia into a dessert. I am a bit in doubt - what are 12 000 rubles for a person who considers to make money in the cleaned place? It’s a snap for him ! It is necessary to raise the fine at least till 70000-80000 rubles. Then maybe (also under a big question) people will think over. And best of all fines on a big sum, to show these people in the TV and announce that these are people who for a minute;s profit are ready to cut out a spot in a subtropical clothes of Abkhazia.
Remembering of such people you start thinking that they have never been brought up, that they have never heard about that respectful attitude to a nature traditionally cultivated in the Abkhaz culture. If you tell them that a hunter had no right to bathe in the mountain lake not to desecrate it and not to spoil a natural balance, these people will sincerely be puzzled - they will never think so. Give them this lake and they will at once build a shashlik café and will get down dirty water into it.
