HUNGARY TO HELP UKRAINE WITH ECOLOGY ISSUE IN BEREHOVE

 

The Hungarian government will provide a budget of 1.2 billion forints (EUR 3.3m) to help Berehove (Beregszász) in Transcarpathia resolve ecological issues concerning its Verke river, Levente Magyar, state secretary at the foreign ministry, said during talks with Berehove mayor Zoltán Babják. Magyar said the sum would be sufficient to remove sludge from the riverbed and renew its banks, as well as building a dam outside the city to regulate the river’s water supply and prevent sludge from being deposited. The government will also help Berehove’s waterworks with a grant of 200 million forints aimed at improvements in the sewerage system to prevent sewage from flowing into the river, he added.
