Save the Carpathians –
No Olympic Winter Games in Ukraine!
Trees cannot scream
How unsustainability and illegality are destroying the forests of the Ukrainian Carpathians
The Svydovets mountain range plays a tremendously important role in preserving thelandscape and biodiversity of the Carpathian Mountains. It is here that an enormous ski resort, which is bigger in area than Vyshhorod, Bakhchysarai or Khust, is planned to be built.
