Russia: Multiple detentions, protester faints during Yadrovo protest

Russian Federation, Yadrovo
April 15, 2018 at 18:39 GMT -00:00 · Published

Around ten people were detained during a protest against overfilled rubbish landfills in Yadrovo, Volokolamsk Region on Sunday.

One of the protesters went faint and fell unconscious in the crowds when the police officers were trying to detain more people.

People in Yadrovo demand the closure of the rubbish facility located near a residential area.

The Yadrovo landfill site in Volokolamsk released a wave of gas on 21 March, causing symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches and nausea.

Volokolamsk residents have been repeatedly calling for the plant’s closure due to the foul odour in the area that has caused allergic reactions and health issues to the locals.

On Saturday, Head of the Moscow Region Governor’s Administration Mikhail Kuznetsov apologised for the landfill that has caused ‘so much trouble’ and added ‘we will do everything possible and impossible so that this odour will never be in your life.’
