Olympics:Illegal dump tarnishes 'green' Sochi

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


Away from the construction bustle of Sochi's Olympic Park, where Russia will host the Winter Olympics next February, residents of a small community north of central Sochi have seen only the filthy side of preparations. Uch-Dere, a village about 40 kilometres up the Black Sea coast from the Olympic Park, is the site of greater Sochi's only waste site. And despite years of promises to close it as part of the Sochi Olympics environmental programme, locals fight a nightly war with illegal dump trucks that bring garbage from all over the city. "Just when the Olympic preparations began, we started having this problem," said Khamsat Kravchenko, a resident and activist in Uch-Dere. "Waste began to be brought here from the entire Sochi area."
