A Loophole in the Rules Creates Mountains of Trash

One day dump trucks started appearing on Petrozavodsk’s Staraya Kukkovka Street next to residential homes. They unloaded soil and building materials as if they were constructing a ski jump in the center of the city. Neighbours complained but nobody intervened.

The reporter Julia Jucherenko made a tv-documentary about this illegal scheme which is very profitable to construction companies. The authorities know about it but claim they lack the authority to stop it.

The documentary was shown 26.10.2016
