Uzhgorod Bear suffers again: the symbol of "Zero Kilometer" was turned into trash bin

City authorities moved the Bear from the Poshtova Square, where he had suffered damage from vandals, to the rock garden. The Bear changed colors and became a symbol of the "Kilometer Zero" - on his "fattened" body inscriptions with the names of the twin cities of Uzhgorod and the distances to them appeared. But even there the Bear was not left alone - it was turned into a dump. After that the Bear has once been repaired, but it did not stop vandals. So the Bear keeps standing with a trash bin instead of a plump rump. And soon Uzhgorod celebrates the City Day, the feast will be attended by delegations from sister cities whose names "proudly" shine on the poor Bear.

ведмедик не тільки символізує нульвий кілометр - він відображає нульову культуру ужгородців, які виросли без води в квартирах і не звикли до чистоти. середовище формує особистість!!! якими можуть вирости діти? коли з дитинства вони не бачили асфальтованих доріг, про тротуари їм навіть і не снилося, розбиті підїзди, захаркані ліфти, місто оповите димом від палаючих смітників.... ужгородці саме таким люблять своє місто!!! вони до цього звикали з дитинства!!!
