Residents of Magadan will express their protest against the construction of a crematorium in the landscape area on January 18. An rally agreed at the administrative level will be held near the city hall.

The initiators of the rally were residents of Magadan. In their opinion, the construction and subsequent operation of the crematorium can cause irreparable harm to the environment and the health of the residents of the regional center.

The head of the city said that the mayor’s office does not build a crematorium, it will only discuss changing the type of permitted use of the land from the land of “transport infrastructure” to land of “ritual purpose." According to the press service of the city administration, the authorities agreed to hold a rally.

The controversial issue of the construction of a crematorium in Magadan has been discussed since 2016. Entrepreneur Dmitry Vech acquired a plot of land located in the landscape zone, where he planned to build a crematorium. However, according to the land legislation, for the construction of facilities of this type it is necessary to transfer the land into the status of ritual land. Since 2016, the businessman has been fighting for this status, but residents are opposed.
