Officials seized the fir trees at local markets in the southern town of Rovno, where they were being sold for the upcoming Orthodox Christmas, Itar-Tass agency reported.
After the region was covered by a radioactive cloud, a complete ban on the felling of trees in the contaminated forests surrounding Chernobyl was imposed.
Police said the local businessmen knew the trees from the Zhytomyr region were contaminated, and used forged documents to sell them.
So this is why Rudolph's nose glows.
Are we having a philosophical discussion here, or am I being reprimanded?
