The activist urged the Darnitsa regional state administration and public utilities from "Kyivzelenstroy" to pay attention to the littering of the forest.

We shall remind you that in Kyiv, in the landscape reserve of local importance "Zhukov Island" was found a spontaneous dump, traces of numerous bonfires, felling of trees, as well as, despite the ban on the entry of vehicles, traces of cars, ATVs and motorcycles. At the end of May, the communal workers cleaned up the island.

As EcoPolitics reported earlier, in Kiev, KP "Pleso" plans to announce a competitive tender for clearing the underground section of the Lybid River from significant silt deposits, wood and various debris.
