In the village of Velyki Hrybovychi (Lviv region), some unknown person made obstruction to the TV crew of one of Lviv's TV channels who came to film the story on landfill. He broke the cameras well. The incident occurred on October 6 at the landfill for solid domestic waste, as it is reported on the website of the Main Directorate of the National Police in Lviv region.
