The Ministry of Emergency Situations warned residents of St. Petersburg about ice on January 26–27

Worsening of weather conditions is expected in St. Petersburg on January 26 and 27. This is reported by the regional department of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia.

According to the forecast of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “North-Western UGMS”, severe black ice is possible in the next two days. In this regard, pedestrians and car owners must be especially careful.

The risk of injury on the streets of St. Petersburg also increases due to the poor quality of public services. Local residents have repeatedly spoken about this problem to Governor Alexander Beglov, but for several years in a row the situation has remained unchanged.

So, at the end of December 2022, a 65-year-old pensioner was injured when falling on ice. Now communal services require compensation in the amount of 500 thousand rubles.
