The young forests of the Caucasus


Not very far from Maykop on the Federal highway M4 don, between the Hot Key and Dzhubga, beyond the pass, in the mountains is the village of Moldovanovka. Mountains covered with dense forest, which is now heavily cut down by poachers (it seems like everything of value was cut down).
