In the village of Berezovka Burlin district, which is located in West-Kazakhstan region, sags ground. Told Tengrinews.kz chairman Ecological Society "Green Salvation" Sergei Kuratov.
"There has been a failure under the house. Nobody can explain what it is. Such failures around villages have a huge amount," — said Kuratov.
Berezovka wrote a number of letters to the competent authorities to urgently conduct a survey of the territory. Public authorities have received the letters, after which came to the village and inspected the area. However, according to Kuratov, no action was taken.
In the environmental community, "Green Salvation" does not rule out that the land subsidence occurs as a result of oil production. "This seriously threatens the lives and well-being of residents of the village," — said the source.
