"Another motive is very important: the increase in the price of biofuels and the increase in the price of biofuels are linked to a decline in supply, which would increase the supply of crossings. have on prices, "- said V. Pranckietis.
"Proportional logging of forests can lower prices," the head of the Seimas added.
