Every year this time the grass in the fields and meadows are burnt down. Under RA Law “On Conversation of Atmospheric Air”, the remainders of vegetations in the fields and meadows are banned to be burnt down. The aim of this project is the decrease in the emission of toxic substances into the atmosphere formed as a result of the combustion, as well as decrease in the risks of wide-scale fires. EcoLur insists this law isn’t enforced. On 6 November during its visit to Gegarkounik Region you can see from the highway of Sevan-Vardenis how mountains and fields were in the smoke. A question arises to the competent governmental bodies - Nature Protection Ministry, Health Ministry, Territorial Administration Ministry and Agriculture Ministry: who and when intends to deal with the solution of this problem.
