TOMSK, Russia, May 27 (UPI) -- A Russian protest group said it plans to plant flowers in their city's potholes to draw municipal attention to the dire state of the roads.

Igor Sashov, leader of the Tomsk Roads movement, said Monday "the municipal authorities have not reacted at all" to previous efforts, which included painting circles around Tomsk's potholes, so they have decided to plant flowers in the holes to force officials into taking action to repair the roads, RIA Novosti reported Monday.
