Hungary officially expressed Transcarpathia a concern about the piles of garbage carried by floodwater (PHOTOS)

Within a minute, Transcarpathia "exported" to Hungary down the Tisa river up to one hundred plastic bottles

 As of Wednesday morning, no farmland or residential buildings in Transcarpathia are flooded. These hours, the maximum water level on the Latorica river is passing through Uzhgorod district. Near the village of Tysaahtelek (Tysyanka), the road located in the valley is flooded, but traffic is not blocked. During Wednesday and Thursday, the maximum wave on the Tisa and Latorica will pass near Chop. No critical situations are expected.

- The current flood once again demonstrated foreign neighbors our "Europeanness" in terms of garbage disposal - Hennadiy Moskal said. - Deputy Commissioner of the Government of Hungary on border waters expressed formal concerns about the piles of garbage which that country's border areas received as a "gift" from Transcarpathia together with floodwater from the Tisa. A similar concern, most likely, will be received from Slovaks for "export" of garbage by the Uzh. According to specialists, the Tisa current is carrying to Hungary one hundred plastic bottles per minute. This is the waste that Transcarpathians (especially the inhabitants of mountainous areas) throw away near houses, in the woods, on the coast, and then flood water carries all that into the river and "exports" to the EU. But when we initiate construction of modern waste treatment plants that can recycle waste and generate electricity or heat, people will not support the initiative at public hearing, protest and block the roads!
