Until now, the culprit of dumping snow into the Moika in St. Petersburg has not been found. Andrey Kochin, director of St. Petersburg State Budgetary Institution Mostotrest, told reporters about this the night before. He promised to find out who was involved in the work, and warned of punishment.

“If this is our contractor and its leader dumped the snow, the first thing we will do is force it to be removed – the one that lies on the ice. Because pollution is unacceptable. This is spelled out in the cleaning rules, it is spelled out in our contractual documents with the contractor. And the organization itself – penalties. Quite large,” Kochin said.

A video from the Moika embankment was circulated on social networks the day before. Petersburgers were divided in opinion. Some users called the practice common and noted that in Leningrad “they always poured snow into the canals”, and this is better than “producing mountains on the embankments.”

“This is Moika. Wash off!” commentators joke.

Others recalled that dirty, reagent-soaked snow can damage the river and its inhabitants.

“Then a fish with three heads will swim,” wrote the user.
