Citizens’ right to access Lake Aya restored in Altai Territory

02 August 2017

Commissioner for Human Rights in the Altai Territory Boris Larin managed to restore the right of the inhabitants of the region to access Lake Aya.

The regional Commissioner received appeals from residents of the Altai Territory who informed him that the owners of recreation centers put fences and charge fees for the passage to Lake Aya.

As a result of the audit, unscrupulous entrepreneurs were brought to administrative responsibility for limiting access to the lake.

The Commissioner reminds residents and guests of the region that according to Russian legislation all the state or municipally owned surface water bodies are public. Therefore, everyone has the right to access them for free.
