Prime Minister Mykola Azarov is demanding that chairmen of regional state administrations focus on providing environmental control in the regions.

The head of government expressed this demand during a conference call at the Ministry of Environment, UKRINFORM reported.

"I want to draw the attention of regional state administration chairmen to topics such as illegal logging, illegal dumps, illegal construction, pollution of water and air in excess of standards, along with economy of the regions, along with the social sphere, along with security. All these topics are most important for you, and the Government will seriously ask you about them," Mykola Azarov said.
