Lake Baikal breathes a sigh of relief
Russia’s notorious Baikalsk paper plant has finally closed, laying off hundreds of workers and writing the penultimate chapter in a decades-long environmental dispute.
The plant was built in the 1960s and has been targeted by environmental activists since the late Soviet era. It was shuttered and reopened several times, then ordered to close in 2008, most thought for the final time.
