Katya is a TV reporter for a local news station in Kursk and asked to speak with me about city infrastructure for people with special needs. As I went to meet her in the center of the city, I looked at the city buses that passed me. It would have been impossible for someone in a wheelchair to fit inside, much less get on the first step. It is not just a Kursk issue, but a Russia-wide issue. At least local TV is raising awareness, though many years may pass before there is money for such buses.
