. XRUTOV VIDEO REPORT; FROM THE "TV INFORM" PROGRAM))

((TEXT)) ENTH OF THE TOTAL TERRITORY OF OURAYONS, ARE CONSIDERED ECOLOGICALLY DAMAGED. HEREEPORT BY ALEKSANDR KRUTOV FROM THE CITY OF DALNEGORSK OF THE MARITIME KRAY:

((BEGIN RECORDING)) RUTOV)) SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AN UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT CRASHED ON THIS HILL. UNFORTUNATELY, AS THE EYEWITNESSES WERE CLIMBING TOWARDS THE SCENE OF THE EVENT, IT DISAPPEARED. AS WE UNDERSTOOD FROM OUR TALKS WITH THE RESIDENTS OF DALNEGORSK, THE UFOSOMMON OCCURRENCE HERE. THE LOCAL UFOLOGISTS HAVE EVEN ESTABLISHED CONTACT WITH OUTER SPACE, AND ONE DAY EXPECTED THE LANDINGFO IN THE CITY STADIUM. FOR UNKNOWN REASONS, THE ENCOUNTER DID NOT TAKE PLACE, BUT THE UFOLOGISTS HAVE NOT LOST HOPE.

SO WHAT ATTRACTS VISITORS FROM OUTER SPACE TO DALNEGORSK? COULD THIS DEAD LAND BE IT? IDEO SHOWS SIGHTS IN DALNEGORSK TAKEN FROM HELICOPTER, CUTS TO SHOW WHAT LOOKSTRIP-MINING SITE)) IT CERTAINLY IS SUITABLE ONLY FOR THE LANDINGPACESHIP. THIS MOON-LIKE LANDSCAPE IS WHAT HAS BEEN LEFT BEHIND BY THE INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATION 'BOR'. THEY WERE LOOKINGHEAP DEAL AT THE TIME, AND THIS IS HOW THEY MINED, BUILDING TENANT HOUSESOSPITAL RIGHT IN THE INDUSTRIAL ZONE, CLOSE TO THE PLACE OF WORK. ESULT, DUST AND SUSPENDED MATTER COVERS THE TOWN AND CLOGS THE LUNGS OF ADULTS AND CHILDREN. IDEO SHOWS INTERVIEW WITH G.YNECOLOGIST))

((PILIPCHUK)) THE STATE OF HEALTH OF OUR WOMEN, AND ACTUALLY THE STATE OF HEALTH OF ALL THE POPULATION OF OUR RAYON, DOES NOT GIVE US THE MEDICS CAUSE FOR OPTIMISM. LATELY, THE GROWTH OF BIRTH DEFECTS AMONG THE NEWBORN AND THE HIGH RATE OF MORBIDITY IN THE FIRST MONTHS OR YEARS OF LIFE HAVE BEEN OBSERVED, AND WE THE MEDICAL WORKERS CONNECT IT TO THE DAMAGING INFLUENCE OF OUR CHEMICAL AND MINING INDUSTRY.

((KRUTOV)) CONSTRUCTORS DO NOT EVEN USE WATER FROM THE CITY'S RIVER,O NOT MEAN FOR DRINKING FOR MIXING CEMENT. THE WATER IS SO BAD THAT THE CEMENT CRUMBLES. DALNEGORSK IS CALLED THE CHERNOBYL OF THE FAR EAST. IDEO SHOWS MORE AERIAL SHOTS OF THE CITY, CUTS TO AN INTERVIEW WITH L. SPITSYN, MACHINIST AT THE 'BOR' INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATION))

HE PREDATORY LOOTING THAT WENT ON ALL OVER THE COUNTRY EXISTS HERE TOO. EAN THE MAIN THING WAS TO GRAB, NO

MATTER HOW, WHAT, OR WHERE. GRABBING IS THE MAIN GOAL. THE ECONOMY SHOULD BE ECONOMICAL, SO LET US ECONOMIZE BY STARTING WITH THE ENVIRONMENT.

((KRUTOV)) YOU SAY THAT YOU ARE FIGHTING WINDMILLS. WHOM ARE TOU FIGHTING?

OPE THAT TODAY. AFTERFHE SITUATION WILL CHANGE SOMEHOW. BUT BEFOREELL. AT THE TIME WHEN MY CANDIDACYEPUTY WAS ADVANCED BY THEHOUGHT THAT THE BAD GUYS WERE ALEKHIN. GENERAL DIRECTOR OF THE ASSOCIATION, OR SIDOROV. OR PETROV. BUTAW ALL OF THIS WITH MY OWN EYES,AW ALL THESE DOCUMENTS, THE REQUIREMENTS THAT WEREEALIZED THAT NEITHER ALEKHIN, SIDOROV. OR PETROV WERE TO BLAME; THE SYSTEM WAS TO BLAME. WHAT IT DEMANDS IS BAD, SO IT IS NOT FEASIBLE TO DO GOOD EITHER ECONOMICALLY OR ADMINISTRATIVELY; IF YOU DO NOT DO THE BAD THING YOU WILL SIMPLY BE KICKED OUT, THE SYSTEM WILL REJECT YOU. IDEO SHOWS RESIDENTS OF DALNEGORSK))

T IS DIFFICULT TO SAY WHEN AND HOW THE SYSTEM WILL CHANGE, AND NO CHANGES ARE MEANWHILE VISIBLE, NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY, GIVE UP THE STRIP MINING METHOD AND CONVERT TO UNDERGROUND MINING. MAYBE THIS IS THE REASON THAT THE RESIDENTS OF DALNEGORSK ARE WAITING FOR VISITORS FROM OUTER SPACE, HOPING THAT THEY CAN HELP SOLVE THE TERRESTRIAL PROBLEMS. ND RECORDING))

((ANNOUNCER)) AND HEREEW NUMBERS UNTIL RECENTLY, NINE BILLION ROUBLES WERE INVESTED IN ECOLOGY, WHILE DAMAGE FROM THE BARBARIC TREATMENT OF NATURE AMOUNT TOILLION ROUBLES.
