For many years in the International Children's Day the Nikolaev zoo best in Ukraine gave to children opportunity of free visit of the institution. However because of financial problems which aggravated also the world economic crisis, the second year in a row children are deprived of such opportunity. The entrance fee for the child this year made 10 hryvnias, for adults - 20.
Economist Nikolaev zoo Olga Zinovyeva explained this situation with lack of financial support from the city power, and on a request to report, how many children visited a zoo in the International Children's Day, answered: these data can be taken from the director of the enterprise Vladimir Topchiya but after it will return from business trip. Having learned on good authority that at this moment in the territory of the Nikolaev zoo there was a mayor Vladimir Chaika, we immediately called back to it and took an interest why the city didn't help the zoo best in Ukraine to provide free entrance to children in the International Children's Day as it was earlier.
- Today, you understand, such crisis, such crisis … And though the entrance for children this year really was paid, we agreed that children from a number of boarding schools, children - orphans visited on the holiday a zoo free of charge. And the next year I promise: we it is obligatory, we will surely find money in the budget and we will make it! - Vladimir Dmitriyevich assured.
As far as it is the truth - we learn on June 1, 2010
It is known that in March of this year session of the City Council approved the authorized capital of the enterprise KP "Nikolaev Zoo" of 3 million 603 thousand 300 hryvnias.
