Russians have temporarily occupied 20 nature reserves in Ukraine and are turning them into hunting grounds
As Andrii Yermak, the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, wrote on Telegram, Russian invaders have temporarily occupied 20 nature reserves in Ukraine and are turning them into hunting grounds, mines, and “parking lots” for tanks.
“The Russians have already occupied twenty nature reserves in Ukraine. They are turning parks, where rare species of animals and plants are supposed to be protected, into hunting grounds, mines, and parking lots for tanks. The survival of wildlife is another important reason why Ukrainian lands should be freed as soon as possible,” Yermak said.
As reported, according to preliminary information, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has caused almost UAH 2 trillion in damage to Ukraine’s environment.
