Russians create preconditions for another environmental disaster

After the occupiers blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam (June 6), the issue of water supply and irrigation of agricultural land in the south of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions and in Crimea has become more acute due to the shallowing of the North Crimean Canal.

In this regard, Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Andrei Razin illegally visited the TOT of Zaporizhzhia region and met with Svetlana Shevchenko, the occupiers’ appointed “Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers – Minister of Agriculture and Food Policy”. In particular, the occupation administration proposed to use the waters of the Molochna River, which is the largest river in the TOT of Zaporizhzhia region, and to transfer its flow to irrigation canals. The occupation administration has already begun clearing the riverbed and preparing for engineering work.

This decision of the occupiers may lead to an increase in salinity in the Sea of Azov, as well as a shortage of drinking water in Melitopol, which creates the preconditions for another environmental disaster in the TOT.

The National Resistance Center calls for reporting all illegal actions of the occupation administrations in the TOT through a chatbot.
