Frame: Green alternative
In Russia there is a “Hell” — that such a sign was installed at the entrance to Krasnoyarsk. People are unhappy with the environmental situation in the city and so I decided to draw the attention of the public. This was announced by the party “Green alternative” on his page in social network “Vkontakte”.
Activists have claimed responsibility for the renaming of six cities: Krasnoyarsk, Syktyvkar, Chelyabinsk, Voronezh, Voskresensk and Lyubertsy. “All of them much more suited one common saying name, emphasizing the essence of the local “ecological sites,” each”, — said the representatives of the organization. We are talking about the harmful plants or the construction of waste incineration plants contrary to the opinion of local residents.
Krasnoyarsk citizens have long been demanding from the local authorities to take measures that will force industries to reduce their emissions. They are so numerous that the city periodically officially declares the regime of unfavorable meteorological conditions (NMU), also known as “black sky”. Citizens insist on greater control over the health of children in educational institutions: limiting their stay on the street while at NMU, as well as the installation of filters to clean indoor air.
According to the rating IQAir company AirVisual, 17 Feb 2020 Krasnoyarsk was the first among the largest cities in the world in terms of air pollution.
