Residents of the settlement near Minsk decided to defend themselves against the "smoking giant."

"Residents of the settlement of Kalodzishchy near Minsk are against of expanding the Amkador plant," – video blogger Marat Minski reports on Youtube.

"The plant is to be expanded a few kilometers from Minsk. The presentation didn’t cause serious resonance: Kalodzishchy inhabitants did not immediately get what kind of a surprise to expect. They started to study the papers closer to the end of the presentation of the project on constructing a new plant, Amkador, and found out that they had not been aware of its "ecological" component at all. Now people are sure: they were deceived, a smoking giant will be built next to their houses and dachas," – the video says.
