Vadim Krasnoselsky thanked the leadership of the state administration of the city and the region for the work done and the contribution to the preservation of historical memory.
The interlocutors discussed progress in the improvement of the Kamenka park named after Wittgenstein during the meeting. To date, the work is underway to create an entrance group. When laying the foundation, builders encountered difficulty in the form of deposits of stones they had to use drilling equipment. Pipes for future columns have already been purchased.

The President drew attention to the need for their improvement not only inside the park zone: the paths leading to the park will also be put in order. The first stage of work is planned to be completed by the 30th anniversary of the republic.
