The organizers also promise a trip for volunteers to depots in Beregovo and Korolevo in Vynogradiv district. According to the chairman of the NGO "Borzhava initiative" Denys Dobra, the volunteer railway camp was supported by known Transcarpathian winemaker Ivan Ursta. It's not the first time Mr. Ursta participates in railway promotional campaigns - a few years ago the winemaker's mansion was one of the stops in the wine tourist route. In addition to wine tasting, the owner told about the development of winemaking and viticulture in the region, the ​culture of wine consumption.

Tomorrow (25.07), at 9.00, workers of the RSA will be cleaning up the territory adjacent to the administrative building.

- I was shocked by the current state of Uzhgorod, - Moskal said. - Once tidy, cozy town is turning into a dump, even the area around the RSA is overgrown with weeds and cluttered with plastic waste. When I walk to work, I feel like I am in some depressed district center, not in the main city of Transcarpathia, which has to attract tourists. Utilities and the management of Uzhgorod forgot about their direct duties.

I understand that one-day clean-up will not bring the city in perfect order, but I initiate cleaning to draw the attention of all citizens - we can not live in such filth, we must return Uzhgorod the image of one of the most attractive cities in Ukraine!

Hennadiy Moskal also take part in Saturday clean-up.
