Abstract (English):
This article traces the history of forest legislation and timber export from the Soviet Union to this day. The author studied legal acts and historical documents to analyze the possibility of using positive historical experience in the current forest law. This analysis, as well as interdisciplinary and systematic approaches, made it possible to study certain aspects of Russian export activities. This publication represents a theoretical and practical foundation for further research that will cover pre-revolutionary, Soviet, and Russian forestry legislation in the field of timber export. The author believes that contemporary timber export needs the same methods that were applied in the Soviet Union. Their essence was in the strict control, a clear structure of authorized bodies, and various restrictive measures.
