The snow that fell over the northern Armenian town of Vanadzor over ten days ago has turned into a dangerous, totally impassable, sheet of ice for residents who have to get on with their daily business.

The Vanadzor Municipality has done next to nothing to make public spaces safe for its residents. It even hasn’t cleaned the sidewalks outside the mayor’s office and other municipal buildings.

Senior citizens, fearing bodily harm, have stayed indoors. Women, who are tasked with the household shopping, are seen slipping and sliding throughout the town. Those who do succumb and fall on the black ice, breathe a sigh of relief when they get up – no bones broken.
