The session of Uzhgorod City Council was accompanied by cries of "Shame," "Betrayal" and considerable resistance of the community.
According to activists, under the pretext of land allocation to the ATO participants, the city authorities are trying to adopt a scandalous zoning issue without the approved Master Plan of the city. As a result, 26 deputies voted for the zoning plan of Uzhgorod, the decision was not adopted.
By two separate decisions, deputies supported the allocation of land to the soldiers giving 42 and 43 votes respectively. This means that the participants of the ATO can develop documents for the land in specified places.
In addition, members adopted a package of several social issues. In particular, once again they made changes to the city budget, allocated funds to the newspaper "Uzhgorod" and parents of children with cancer.
