A bilateral Ukrainian-Romanian meeting on impact on the environment within the implementation of the Danube-Black Sea Project on fairway resumption in the Ukrainian part of the Danube delta took place in the city of Vylkove (the Odesa region, South Ukraine), the Cabinet’s press office informs.

The discussion was attended by envoys of Transport Ministries and Ministries of Environmental Protection, local authorities, diplomats, ecologists, Danube ports officials and NGOs representatives of the two countries.

"Ukraine chose the most appropriate way of the vessel traffic resumption in the Ukrainian part of the Danube delta. This is proved by the historical experience of economic activity (fishery, hunting, shipping etc), which kept a unique nature of the region", head Viktor Bezdolny of the State-owned Enterprise Delta Lotsman said.

"Only when all points of views are expressed, we can outline further mechanisms for the Project implementation. These mechanisms should keep the Danube's unique eco-system to the maximum", Administration Director Grigore Boboyanu of the Danube delta Rumanian Biosphere Reserve stated.

The next consultations will take place at the Romanian Danube city of Tulcha on July 4.

The Ukrainian fairway Danube-Black Sea started experimental operation in April 2007. Repair operations for vessel traffic support by Ukraine had been performing since November 2006. Further implementation of the Project (channel dredging directly over the Danube bed) will be continued after a set of procedures is fulfilled, which are provided by national legislation and international conventions.
