The ruscists committed barbaric actions against the flora and fauna of southern Ukraine, the Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine, Ruslan Strilets, said in a statement.
“Due to the man-made flood created by russians, Ukraine has suffered significant losses to flora and fauna. The big water basically just washes away all our biodiversity. 9 objects of the Emerald Network, 5 Ramsar sites with an area of more than 76 thousand hectares are in danger of disappearing,” the minister said.
It will be almost impossible to restore these ecosystems in their original form, as nature created them. It will take decades. And no amount of money in the world will give us back our unique nature, the official noted.
