Oil refinery China Petrol Company Junda Ltd. in Zhaiyl district of Chui region violates the Land Code of the Kyrgyz Republic. The State Inspectorate for Environmental and Technical Safety reported.

Mount burial grounds in Kara-Balta, located on the territory of a land plot, transferred for temporary use to Junda plant, are under the threat of destruction.

The requirements are ignored. Burial grounds of 5-3 centuries BC, considered as a historical and cultural heritage, are being destroyed.
