The persons involved in the commission of this offense were not present at the time of the examination. Since their actions showed signs of a criminal offense under Article 214 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine, environmental inspectors called an investigative team to the scene. They also contacted law enforcement agencies to identify those responsible for the crime.
