Pogorelov does not obey Moskal
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.
