In Sumy region, employees of a utility company The "Illinsky Fair" cut down 6 trees on the territory of the "Romansky" Park, a monument of garden and park art of local importance.

This park in Romny is an object of the nature reserve fund, the State Environmental Inspection in the Sumy Region reports on Facebook.

"No permits for the removal of trees were given to anyone, and therefore, it was done illegally. During the conversation with the eco-inspectors, the company's representatives refused to provide any explanations," the message emphasized.

Eco-inspectors called law enforcement officers to record the offense and enter information into the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations.

The report added that the damage from the destruction of trees amounted to more than 1.5 million hryvnias.
