The most striking piece of bad news is the collapse of the railroad bridge near the City of Kola on or around June 3, thus cutting the railroad connection to Murmansk. This was caused by high level of water in the Kola River. The governor apparently declared it will be restored within five days which, of course, is totally unrealistic.
Spring flooding is reported in several communities, including Murmansk and Lovozero.
Bad news from Kandalaksha itself consist of a report of 13 Covid-19 cases (out of 3342 in the entire region of of June 3 2020), a seemingly much greater than in previous years a crop of homeless puppies, and sinking asphalt or open manholes, plus several fires during this week. And several cases – more than I remember ever reported – of fraud involving bank cards.
Typical Russian spring!
