Ecocide in Ukraine: Environmental Impact on EU Countries

Kyiv - How environmental war crimes of Russians in Ukraine affect the environment of European countries? We have established that Russia is committing ecocide in Ukraine.

Pollution of forests, reserves, large cross-border rivers Danube, Dniester, Prut, Western Bug. Destruction of living resources in the Black Sea.

We proved that the soil in European countries is contaminated with heavy metals. Only in Ukraine - 2 million m² of fields were destroyed.

We proved that the Russian military and the full-scale war of the aggressor are involved in the significant deterioration of the ecological situation in Ukraine and neighbouring European countries.
We have identified specific Russian middle and lower commanders who give orders to soldiers - which in the future leads to crimes against ecology.

We will establish the facts that the level of atmospheric air pollution in Moldova, Ukraine has increased - compared to the indicators - which were before the start of the full-scale Russian attack.
We proved that the death of thousands of dolphins in Bulgaria was caused by the actions of Russian warships.
