Dwellers of the remote villages of the Slonim district – Sasnouka, Mizgiry, Balty, Hrynkoushchyna and Yarutsichy – stand against the storage of 4.000 barrels of chemicals in the village of Mizgiry.

The villages apply to various state agencies asking for help. They are anxious that the chemical waste presents danger to their health and the environment, the more that these villages have always been ecologically clean. However, nobody seems to react to their appeals. That's why the barrels are still in Mizgiry.
