A biggin in Slantsy wi the toun's coat o airms

Slantsy (Roushie: Сла́нцы) is a toun an the admeenistrative center o Slantsevsky Destrict o Leningrad Oblast, Roushie, situatit on the Plyussa River, 192 kilometers (119 mi) wast o St. Petersburg. Population: 37,371 (2002 Census);[1] 43,087 (1989 Census).[2].

The creation o a settlement wis proposed in 1930 bi Sergey Kirov; construction began in 1932. The main street wis namit efter Kirov. Offeecial toun status wis grantit in 1949.

The toun's name is the Roushie wird for shale. The toun wis lairgely sustained bi shale minin, as depictit on its coat o airms, an the resultin fuel wis uised tae licht the streets o St. Petersburg in the 19t century. The mines are nou lairgely closed due tae decrease in local demand an disagreements ower contracts wi nearbi Estonie. This haes resultit in lairge-scale local unemployment. Furthermair, the disuised mines present a serious ecological threat tae watter supplies in the region.
