Plans to rebuild Ukraine should address environment
Plans to rebuild Ukraine will need to address restoring the country’s war-torn ecosystems, the EU Commissioner for the Environment Virginijus Sinkevicius has said. He warned the environmental cost of the conflict was “increasing every day” — and said it could take “generations” to overcome and cited the vast deforestation, minefields, trenches, chemical pollution from weapons, and contaminated soil and streams.
“The (environmental) price tag every day is increasing, because we see the barbaric actions of the Russian side (are) not stopping,” Sinkevicius said.
