Ukraine’s premier jazz festival was to be cancelled because of the rubbish collection problem the city is grappling with.

Ukraine's acting Health Minister Ulana Suprun visited Lviv to assess the situation and ascertain whether the uncollected rubbish posed a health hazard. In a Facebook post Suprun wrote that while the center of Lviv was free of rubbish, the outlying areas had many piles of uncollected garbage. Suprun said that she saw no grounds for declaring an emergency situation in Lviv bit.ly/2tCPu8j.
