On the 19th of April, in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk, there were clashes between the on-site guards of one of the World Student Games (Universiade) buildings on the one hand and ecology activists together with locals on the other.
The protesters prevented powerful construction machinery from entering the garden square, reported LifeNews, referring to the clash’s participants.
In their turn, the guards resisted, pushed the activists, tried to snatch their mobile phones, and twisted their hands.
The issue is that, according to the project, only half of the forest area is to be cut down. However, the builders have fenced off the whole garden, which left the local residents perplexed and prompted their outrage.
