Residents of two villages of Transcarpathia struggle against Lugansk entrepreneur. Narrow-gauge railway is the subject of the dispute. Three kilometers of the railway tracks have been sold by the State Property Fund as non-serviceable. When the new owners started to dismantle the track the inhabitants of neighboring villages came up armed with rakes and spades. They say they will not allow to destroy historic heritage.
