In Moscow, preparing a flash mob against reagents that spoil shoes

Dozens of Muscovites this winter turned to the Society for the Protection of Consumer Rights with complaints about the detrimental effect of reagents on footwear, Mikhail Anshakov, Chairman of the Society for the Protection of Consumer Rights (OZPP), Public Control, told Interfax.

“For this winter season, we have already received about 40 calls. By the end of March, I think the number of complaints from people whose shoes are really corroded will reach hundreds, ”Anshakov said. According to him, the peak of calls is expected at the end of February, when the thaw sets in. Now there are not so many complaints. Reagents are mainly used when the temperature is slightly below zero, they are not used in severe frosts.

According to the chairman of the society, the Moscow authorities still use old reagents on the streets of the city. “No new reagents exist. As we found out, the authorities simply changed the supplier, and there is no difference in the composition, ”Anshakov added. The chairman of the OZPP "Public Control" said that in February his organization plans to arrange a "flash mob against pest reagents."

Meanwhile, the city authorities claim that the reagents used on the Moscow sidewalks are harmless and reduce injuries. According to Andrei Tsybin, head of the Moscow Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Department, at a January 26 briefing, this season reagents using marble steps and formic acid are used to treat sidewalks. “These are completely natural components,” said the head of the department. According to him, they are harmless to the health of citizens, Interfax reports.
