BEHIND THE ELECTION FUZZ IN UKRAINE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT TAKES REVENGE
ON DANUBE BIOSPHERE RESERVE
On November 2 Danube Transport Prosecutors office raided the Danube
biosphere reserve office.
At noon 5 policemen heaeded by the Danube Transport Prosecutors office
represntative S.Kouznetsov arrived at Danube reserve office. They
showed a document about bringing a case against Danube reserve staff.
The accusations are misuse of budget funds and abuse of power.(The
first question that comes to mind - what the TRANSPORT Prosecutor's
office has to do with that?)
After that they took away all documents they could find - not only
accounting, but also all incoming and outcoming letters, agreements
and papers of the previous revisions. There were also attempts to
take away computers.
This raid was taken after dozens of revisions of different level.It is
well known that the true cause of such revision activities is position
of Alexander Volshkevich, reserve director. He keeps defending his
reserve from canal construction impact.
Currently Ukrainian authorities are pretending to listen to EU demands
on canal environmental assessment. However, true situation is quite
different - construction goes on. Reserve Director tells the truth
and demands true monitorng and true assesment of the construction. He
has recieved multiple threats, and this raid is aimed to get rid off
International Socio-ecological Union, Ukrainian Coalition for Wild
Nature condemn this abuse of law. The warn Ukrainian authorities that
international community will be aware of the case. Attack on Danube
reserve Director will not solve the canal problem. ISEU and UCWN call
on international community to support Alexander Voloshkevich.
