"Usually, after the Epiphany, after January 19, a New Year tree on the Khreshchatyk sort. This year the fir-tree will stand till St. Valentine's Day, can till March 8, and maybe about Day of Kiev", - the deputy Kiyevsoveta, the chairman of the commission on culture and tourism questions Alexander Briginets claims.
"The city treasury is empty. New Year's holidays were credited, in fact, by certain people, the organizations, instead of the city budget. When with them will pay off - it isn't known. But, seemingly, while Chernovetsky won't pay, the fir-tree will stand on the Maidan. It is a question of the sum about 1/3 million hryvnias. In total a little more than one million hryvnias was planned for New Year's holidays, and more than hundred thousand are actually allocated. Thus, KGGA ran into debt more than 800 000 hryvnias for New Year. The holiday passed. There was a hangover, debts and … not sorted fir-tree which will surprise one, to please others, and to remind me of economic insolvency of the Kiev power", - Brigintsa quotes his press - service.
