GOOD NEWS - THANK YOU ALL! (Mail from the SEU)
On early December 27 great news came from Kiev, Ukraine!
On National Safety Council meeting its Secretary Eugene Marchuk
stated President`Kuchma's position on the Danube Biosphere reserve
problem. He said that Ukraine was balancing on the international
scandal edge because of attempts to construct a canal through the
reserve. Letters to support the reserve came from 64(!) countries,
and also protest action in front of Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow was
President Kuchma did not want any more scandals, so he would
not sign any decree affecting the reserve! Misnistry of transport
should dig its canal somwhere outside the reserve territory. We
understand that bureaucrats from Ministry of Transport who are also
the stockholders of Delta-Lotsman ( the construction company) will
try to reverse the situation, but it seems that Kuchma is rather
firm on his stand.
So we may hope that one of the most wonderful
European wildlife territories is safe - at least until next
ON BEHALF OF THE RESREVE, SEU AND NATURE PROTECTION COMMUNITY WE
