Uzhgorod residents choose alternative
Uzhgorod residents are invited to arrange an alternative Christmas fair. With such a proposal, the community activist Yaroslav Shafar adressed to the citizens on his page in facebook:
"Let us show that we are merry, creative, kind and peaceful! We will arrange a real New Year Yard Sale next Saturday or Sunday.
Right on the pedestrian bridge!! Because a parody of the Christmas fair on Petofi Square is infuriating! Infuriating with everything - prices, stale, extortion, etc. We can do better, - the City Council member Yaroslav Shafar assures and adds - I am for an "alternative" fair!"
Recall that someone obviously does not like the initiative of Shafar. A few days ago, the car of one of the organizers of Uzhgorod Euromaidan, who also helps with sending Transcarpathians to Kyiv, was set on fire... a few meters from the office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in Transcarpathian region. Mr. Shafar attributes the incident solely to his social and political activities, and says that they won't intimidate him.
