Saga about the way landlords area absorbed state preserve

In what way did it all happen? Why did wild boars predominate in historical places? Where are they, those 4465 hectares of inviolable acres? It turned out that in accordance with the order of Cherkasy regional state administration of the 8-th of September,1999 by 334 the preserve got only 590 hectares between Bychak and Hryhorivka villages of Kanivskyi district. The territory was decreased secretly and it was made so because another decree concerning creation of a landscape park Trakhtemyriv was prepared simultaneously.

While research workers and public gave the alarm, enormous acres in Prydniprovska height of not only Kaniv district, but also Myronivka district that are in Kyiv region, were given to unstate - the first and unique in Ukraine! landscape park. The decrees of boards of neighbouring regions turned out to be synchronous and of the same type: Kyiv board ratified the decree on February, 17, 2000 (168/10), and Cherkasy board on February, 26, 2000 (14-14). Since then almost all Prydniprovska height has placed under the authority of the close corporation The agrarian and ecological association Trakhtemyriv. It has happened for the first time in the history of Ukraine.
