The plant bleached paper using chlorine and discharged waste directly into Lake Baikal.
The decision to construct the plant on the Lake Baikal resulted in strong protests from Soviet scientists; according to them, the ultra-pure water of the lake was a significant resource and should have been used for innovative chemical production for instance, the production of high-quality viscose for the aeronautics and space industries. The Soviet scientists felt that it was irrational to change Lake Baikal's water quality by beginning paper production on the shore. It was their position that it was also necessary to preserve endemic species of local biota, and to maintain the area around Lake Baikal as a recreation zone.
Later that year on 13 JanuaryRussian Federation President Vladimir Putin introduced changes in the legislation legalising the operation of the plant; this action brought about a wave of protests from ecologists and local residents. Environmental activists in Russia,  Greenpeace, Baikal pipeline opposition  and local citizens  were strongly opposed to these plans, due to the possibility of an accidental oil spill that might cause significant damage to the environment.

According to The Moscow Times and Vicean increasing number of an invasive species of algae thrives in the lake from hundreds of tons of liquid waste, including fuel and excrement, regularly disposed into the lake by tourist sites, and up to 25, tons of FULT I - HAJ300 - Swedish Tribal waste are disposed of every year by local ships.
The first European to reach the lake is said to have been Kurbat Ivanov in According to 19th-century traveler T. Atkinson, locals in the Lake Baikal Region had the tradition that Christ visited the area:.
The people have a tradition in connection with this region which they implicitly believe. They say "that Christ visited this part of Asia and ascended this summit, whence he looked down on all the region around. After blessing the country to the northward, he turned towards the south, and looking across the Baikal, he waved his hand, exclaiming 'Beyond this there is nothing.

After Chinese investors presented plans to pump water from Lake Baikal and send it to China, an anti-Chinese-investor attitude has emerged in Siberia.
