What does the fault of the clock at the train station portend for Uzhgorod?

What does the fault of the clock at the train station portend for Uzhgorod?

For over the week, the city tower was not marking the flow of life in the Transcarpathian regional center... I am talking about G. Kirpa Square (station) and the clock that stopped there around Christmas...

Interestingly, guests and residents of Uzhgorod living "near the tracks" would hear the familiar melody every hour, but the dial would always show 12 o'clock...

"A board failed or something... - one of the workers of the station said. - The engineer found a dead chip. Was working on it all day. Now we check time on it again."

Thus, around 21:00 on January 12, the clock started showing time again.

Recall that the tower with a kind of a tuning fork appeared on Stantsiyna street during the reconstruction of the facility in 2004... Since then, it has not "shut down."

It is difficult to predict what this failure in 2015 portends... If you believe in superstition, then a stagnation to the owner at best!

In our case, there are first signs of unfavorable omens - the fate of the train Uzhgorod-Odesa is uncertain. It is likely to be cancelled or to run every other day, like the train to Kharkiv. Currently, tickets for February are not on sale...

The World Bank again downgraded its forecast for the economy of Ukraine

The World Bank again downgraded its forecast for the economy of Ukraine

13 January 2015 12:33  2089259 090220
The World Bank has lowered the forecast for the decline of Ukraine's GDP in 2014 to 8.2% in comparison with its latest forecast of 8% in October.

This is stated in the publication of the bank "Global Economic Prospects" on Tuesday, the "Interfax-Ukraine" reported.


They downgraded forecast of the Ukraine's GDP decline in 2015 to 2.3% from 1%, estimating the rate of recovery in 2016-2017 respectively at 3.5% and 3.8%.

According to the bank, the current account deficit in the balance of payments of Ukraine in 2014-2015 will amount to 2.7% of GDP, in 2016 it will slightly increase to 2.9% of GDP, and the next year will return to the level of 2.7% of GDP.

The World Bank also points to the existing significant deficit due to problems with the collection of revenues and increased security-related spending.

It was reported that in October 2014 the bank downgraded the forecast of GDP decline in 2014 from 5% to 8%, and changed the forecast of 2.5% growth in 2015 to the forecast of 1% decline.

As you know, Ukraine budget for 2015 is based on the conservative scenario involving the 4.3% decline in GDP with inflation of 13.1%.

There were people willing to receive biometric passport at the Main Office of the State Migration Service in Transcarpathian region in Uzhgorod too. But according to Olga Poshtak, the chief public relations specialist of the Main Office of the SMS of Ukraine in Transcarpathian region, "the "working station" for issuing passports with contactless electronic chip on that day was working in test mode. She says that they will have a more detailed information tomorrow. Instead, in districts, so far they accept documents only for issuing ordinary passports for travel abroad. But it is expected that in February similar equipment will be delivered to ten territorial divisions of the regional Migration Service to meet the demand for the documents.

Recall that the "working station" for issuing passports with contactless electronic chip was installed there in early December last year. It includes a scanner for fingerprints, a digital signature scanner where the person has to sign. Also person is photographed to obtain a digitized image of the face. This information will be recorded on a chip.
