Conflict between local history museum and regional administration started in winter, when the deputies of regional council did not supported Anatolii Syliuk, an incumbent director of the museum, as a candidate for this position again. The reason of their decision was “lack of museum’s development”.

At the same time, the museum’s stuff wants no other head except Anatolii Syliuk.

For the last years, four new museums were created in the region. Annually more than 100 scientific events are held in the local history museum. Besides, town council does not participate in their funding.
