Volunteers from Chernivtsi joined the crowd together with the displaced people

Refugees from other cities cleaned Schiller Park to thank for the shelter in Chernivtsi.

They joined forces with local activists and staged a riot on Saturday, April 30. Organizer of the action and local activist Oleksandr Naumenko published a photo of the results of cleaning the park on his own facebook page.

"Most of the people in the photo are residents of other regions of Ukraine, and today they cleaned Schiller Park, making Chernivtsi a little cleaner. A city that is not their home. But, in addition to high values, they are grateful to the city that sheltered them," he said. Naumenko.

Residents of different parts of Ukraine took part in the fight. Among the volunteers are a top manager from Mariupol, a student from Zhytomyr, an IT specialist from Kyiv and other Ukrainians who had to leave their hometowns.

"They all decided to unite to benefit at this time and be needed in this place," said the organizer of the action.

Chernivtsi volunteers cleaned the city together with the refugees.

It should be noted that the Chernivtsi initiative "Ecoraders" group headed by Oleksandr Naumenko used to gather for such rallies. Its participants cleaned various parts of the city by their own efforts.

Before EcoPolitica wrote that in the Polish city of Suwalki (Podlaskie Voivodeship) more than 30 refugees from Ukraine cleaned the city park and boulevards — so they decided to thank the Poles for the shelter.
