Two Odessa’s beaches have received prestigious certificates of quality known as Blue Flag for the first time.
Mikheil Saakashvili shared on Facebook:
One of the 29 criteria for obtaining such an honorable certificate is free access to the beach. We returned several privatized beaches to the residents of Odessa last year. And we’ll continue our work in this tendency. We should return the residents their rightful property and then many, if not all of the region's beaches can receive this honorable status.
Moreover, I’d like to warn all the season 'invaders': the police of Odessa and I won’t permit any traditional invasions of coastal areas.
