Timber is classified as a strategically important resource and its illegal export is subject to prosecution under Russian Criminal Code. Previously, the prosecution could have been brought if the value of illegally exported timber exceeded one million rubles (about € 13,700 *). Now the indictment limit has been lowered to 100,000 rubles (€ 1370 *). Firewood, roundwood, poles, sawnwood and sheet of veneer are classified as timber (4401, 4403, 4404, 4407, 4408).
