Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held a video conference session with international experts and global environmental activists on the consequences of the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam. The Ukrainian edition of Fakti writes about it.
According to Zelensky, after the accident at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, warehouses containing chemicals and fertilizers, fuel storage facilities, and animal burials, including at least two graves with anthrax, were flooded. The politician pointed out that tens of thousands of birds and at least twenty thousand wild animals are under threat of death due to the state of emergency.
The Ukrainian leader blames the Russian side for what happened. Putin said the ecological disaster was “not a natural disaster or a manifestation of the climate crisis, but a disaster.” What does he do? What he personally ordered to do. “This is Russia’s crime of environmental destruction – the biggest in Europe in decades,” he added.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy assessed the situation as extremely difficult. According to him, there are about a dozen settlements where the evacuation never took place.
