The alarming situation of city snow removal on the Neva has not changed since last year. The people of St. Petersburg regularly complain to the administration of Governor Alexander Beglov and ask to put order in the municipal sphere, but the officials limit themselves to only promises. Due to the authorities’ indifference, people have to take daily risks, moving on slippery roads and sidewalks. Huge icicles hanging from the roofs of houses are of particular concern.
