Short information does not pass
all of specific. It can be only felt on itself. Unfortunately, and can and
fortunately, the creative group of magazine «Carpathians» was not able in time
to arrive in the settlement of Vorokhta, that to take part in these searching
works. Not because of public-call agreement, was under a large question: whether
rescuers will take with itself
in the winter mountains of journalist and photographer without alpinist
certifications. Givings a hope about experience in this case obviously not
enough... Confess, that illustrations to this material are done on lessons,
what rescuers arranged in the day (it is and such) off specially for our magazine.
...Consequently, anyway, and
after time of searches tourists were. The wet and promerzliy
personnel of Vorokhtyanskogo of avariyno-ryatuval'nogo point (ARP) even had time to arrive home two hours
prior to New Year and to meet him in a domestic circle. And in general, how do
the rescuers of Carpathians live and work? Will make an attempt look over
Michael Savchuka inferior (and
not only) for eyes call Grandfather. In April a commander Vorokhtyanskogo ARP
will be 68 years ago. If all of his ascents on Goverlu it is possible it was to
register officially, a mister Michael implicitly would get in Book of records
of Ginnesa - a number is approached to one and a half thousands. Those, who
took part in ascents on the greatest Ukrainian top, probably, met a grey man
with a portable radio transmitter in hands...
Usually do young tourists at the
foot of Goverli on Grandfather look a bit depreciatingly - and where it an old
man going? And he yet and calms are boys, weather of good, a sun lights, can go
quietly. Or cautions, showing on a small dark cloud which can bring a serious
thunderstorm with lightning. (Then on a top will be not only terrible, but also
dangerously). Presumptuous young people later change a scornful relation on a
large surprise and respect. When Michael Savchuk quietly out-distances a group
half-way. So native highlanders walk - as though and at an easy pace, by the
usual measured rate, without jerks and «perekuriv». Go simply. And
tourists sometimes almost hurry at first, and then znesilyuyut'sya. If inexperienced, certainly.
Thus a mister Michael walks up
Goverlu not only with large groups and to duty-bound but also for support of
the proper physical form. Goes for a drive the winter on mountain pattens. (By
the way, goes for a drive very well). Minimum one time per a week goes for
nearby from Vorokhtoy Maguru (1288 meters). Talks that manages young boys and must
look sporting. «Boys» indeed not deprived a health, there are sport masters.
Work obligates. Michael Savchuk in youth also was a sportsman, jumped on
pattens from a springboard. Then 14 years «Advance-guard» managed an uchbovo-sportivnoy base in native Vorokhti, one and a half years is sportbazoy
«Ukraine», and from there went in rescuers. So «hurries» already 30 years
Carpathians, searching and rescuing those, who sues for a help.
Не to due to,
Vorokhtyanskiy ARP are six
persons together with a commander, staff with a telephone on the third floor of
adminbudinku in the center of Vorokhti, six portable radio transmitters, mountain
equipment majority of which rescuers purchased on a market for the personal
funds, and twentyfive-year UAZ-452В without petrol. No, without a fuel he,
certainly, does not ride, that is why rescuers buy petrol also. These six men
are responsible for the searches of tourists approximately on the half of
territory which belongs to Yaremchanskoy of city advice. Somewhere so from 300
thousand hectares, that - for 50 thousands on each. They were able to get the
last ettlings only through a court. Presently again there is a debt.
Chekayut':mozhe again it will be to file an action.
To this year the salary of
mountain rescuer made 900 hryvnyas - money, as for Vorokhti and government
service, small and considerable. If they in time were paid. Then the rescuers
of Carpathians submitted Chervonogradskomu (Lvov area) to mine-rescue
detachment. Presently they from a mine (underground) were separated with
diminishing of ettlings to 600 hryvnyas. Now to survive it will be quite
hardness. True, did not they yet get a new pay-envelope - can and will not
«cut» away? In fact that year already promised to shorten rescue service of
Carpathians or not twice - abolished. It would be good, that changed a mind and
this bout. Because, if for two-three rescuers on a district to leave, not pay a
pay-envelope, not give petrol - will be, as from the «delom
hands of samikhutopayuschikh». That, rescued, ladies and gentlemen tourists,
independently. Experimental alpinists more frequent all and to rescue is not
there a necessity, and here that will be with stray girls on heels and drunk
young ekstremalami, which search adrenalin?
Suggestion acted rescuers to
earn a money - to make an agreement with the proprietors of mountain-skier
lifts and serve slopes. «Vorokhtyanci» a similar agreement with local kanatkoy
was made. On 2 000 hryvnyas for a year. In fact there also amateurs regularly
go down on pattens between fences. And «tea-pots» - it will with whom work. A
year passed - there are not financial receipts. In addition, if a rescuer was
on a duty day on a frost, and in the evening a bell acted with an appeal about
a help - or «sporting boys» will survive searching works - nobody knows.
Therefore, Michael Savchuk talks, rescue service of Carpathians exists «not to
due to, but vsuperech», and he is probably right.
For years the practice a mister
Michael conducted a lot of tourist groups and helped the sufficient generous
amount of victims. Considers self-confidence and alcohol the most enemies of
tourists. Exactly these factors, usually, result in difficult, and even tragic
«Pair of years that
is why one Poland - two-meter graduating student of Warsaw medakademii -
an avalanche covered. Warned. And he: your avalanche - to me for knees. Dug out
quickly, a dog helped from a weather-station - found. A tourist was yet warm,
but did not breathe already. His partner pulled through, move aside on 60
meters - it was driven.
From Lutsk all of rescuers of
Carpathians searched one tourist day after a day whole month. Searches halted
in the end. A body was found in May, when snow climbed... Obviously, he went
one. Pidskovznuvsya, struck a chairman at a stone, lost consciousness and
froze». To have a fellow and presently arrives to Savchuka. A mister Michael
leads it into that place.
«With vodka is a
whole problem. Go to Goverlu, as on a picnic, a «fuel» is carried backpacks.
And «it» on visokogir’I does not take long. A man does not feel intoxication,
does not control itself. And then instantly fells a man from feet. There were
here somehow the Lvov boys. Went out on a top, dressed tuxedos and began «po-kozacki»
to drink too much. Then and lay on lowering, who where fallen down. We barely pozbirali
them, poprivodili to the comprehension».
«On our area of work
much, because here is Goverla. In a weekend arrive a summer for 10-12 busses.
Bring schoolboys. And teachers not only quite do not know mountains, yet and
not able to restrain children. One group in general was brought by a driver,
but not a teacher, not experimental tourist, is a driver. A boy was lost, we
began to search, and the leader of group calms: they say, not first time lose
children, all will be good. The same is needed!».
disrespect not probachayut'. Hear voice by phone - ask for a help, and where are
- does not know. Talk: look to the right - that see, to the left - that see? It
is here needed well to know the district, think, to calculate...».
Disturb the rescuers of
Carpathians and mass political ascents. A record is 17 thousand persons. Result
- two lost, more than hundred trauma... Probably, and is holding meeting
needed, but to what here Goverla?
