Region is still among the ten worst in the "environmental ratings of subjects of the Russian Federation." Moscow region is a huge landfill capital. Same here was derived most of Moscow enterprises here dozens of illegal quarries mined building materials. Along waterways are piles of garbage after the rest of Muscovites, forest fires occur in the first place, through the fault of the people and so on. "
