Almost 3 decades after the Soviet Union collapsed, the ecological legacies of its economic, political and agricultural policies and practices still remain visible across its once -vast territory. Among them are unsustainable fishing practices in the Baltic Sea, poaching and unsustainable logging in the Caucasus, and limited-result efforts to restore part of the Aral Sea.
