Julia MEADOW, “FACTS”
In Lutsk the hurricane on the night of 30 June threw the oldest tree in the city — “Lesin ash”, which had the status of a natural monument of local importance. We will remind, on June 9 at the National aviation University (NAU) of Ukraine, a tree fell on two people sitting on the bench.
According to legend, under the canopy of an old ash liked to rest and write poetry the famous Ukrainian poetess Lesya Ukrainka.
The tree was over 200 years old, he grew up under the walls of Lutsk castle. A month ago the trunk was bent and it was just going to strengthen in the near future, but not yet.
Now experts want to raise a sliver of wood saplings, dropped them off at the historic site, channel 5 reported.
In the network appeared photos and video from the scene of the incident.
We will remind, in the West of Ukraine in the flood remain flooded 70 settlements. And in Kiev a hurricane on June 17 nearly carried away the child.
