Monitors will appear including in Kant, Kara-Balta, Cholpon-Ata and Osh cities. It will be possible to follow changes in ecology not only in the capital, but throughout the country.

Over the past 100 days, Bishkek has been among the top 10 most polluted cities 57 times in the world AirVisual air quality index.
