Summer. Uzhgorod residents are resting as they can. Botanichna embankment is one of the places, where residents of the regional center of Transcarpathia spend their free time. Here they sunbathe in the hot sun and swim in the shallow river Uzh. Despite the ban on swimming, anyone can change clothes in the changing booth and even take the shower, which were established here last year. But the most interesting thing in all this short history is the sand underfoot. There is just a bit of it. Yet, where did it come from and what for? Is this an attempt to arrange a beach for Uzhgorod residents?

The main library of the region joined the nationwide campaign for the collection and recycling of plastic bottles and caps for prosthesis for the ATO participants initiated by the Charity Foundation "Oves." Plastic bottles and caps made of different kinds of plastic are crushed into pellets and used as raw materials or sold, and the funds are allocated for the prosthesis for a particular soldier.

This campaign simultaneously solves two problems - environmental and social. Look for plastic collection points - containers near the entrance to the library and in the lobby on the first floor.

Transcarpathian Regional Universal Scientific Library named after F.Potushnyak

The bed of the Uzh and the quays from the pedestrian to the vehicle bridge (central part of Uzhgorod) are being cleared of grass, bushes, various debris and sediment. The "total cleaning" is being performed at the initiative of the head of the region Hennadiy Moskal, the press office of the RSA emphasizes.

- These are historic quays, which are now in a very bad condition, - H. Moskal said. - Every tourist, who comes to Uzhgorod, wants to walk along the river. But the banks and the riverbed are overgrown with grass and shrubs, cluttered with various rubbish. I have repeatedly made comments to the mayor - both publicly and privately - asking him to address this issue, but to no avail. Only two people came, mowed a grass for half an hour, drank a bottle and left. So I asked the staff of the forest husbandry department to clean the area. Now, they are cleaning quays and the riverbed from the pedestrian to the vehicle bridge. Then, they will start working on the banks upstream the vehicle bridge. It's even worse there, trees have not been cut down, it seems, for ten years. I decided to take personal patronage over the riverbed and embankments of the Uzh so that they please the sight of townspeople and tourists again.
