Estonia and EU to aid Ukraine
Zuleyxa Izmailova, leader of Greens of Estonia, said that the country's capital, Tallinn, is retreating from principles important to the party. "In modern cities, smart ideas are taken into consideration already in the planning phase," Izmailova said. "Tallinn is degenerating and retreating from principles important to me. Copper trolleybus lines were taken down and sold as scrap metal. They will be replaced by old rattling buses, while in Munich vehicles with a Euro 3 pollution standards are prohibited from entering the city centre since October 2012."
"The current city leaders lack vision and the wise and progressive solutions of specialists are ruined with ignorance," Izmailova underscored. "Public money is invested in assets supporting corruption, which do not promote the development of public transport as a modern and environmentally sustainable means of transport -- diverting more and more people to use cars, which cause traffic jams on the streets as well as atmospheric pollution harmful to health."
Tallinna Linnatranspordi AS ( TLT), public transport company of the city of Tallinn, has chosen an offer to sell to it buses up to 12 years old for 672,000 euros as the winner of a tender to buy 1520 second-hand buses. The winning offer was made by the company KTK Tehnika OU, based in Kaiu village in Rapla county.
The buses must have a diesel engine of at least 160 kilowatts of power, 4-6-speed automatic transmission, and meet Euro 3 pollution standards.
