The bottom of the shallowed Kahovsky Reservoir is overgrown with various grasses.
The video with the consequences of ecocide was published in his Telegram by the head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak.
As is known, the occupiers blew up the Kakhovskaya HPP dam on July 6, which caused large-scale flooding, environmental pollution, and the draining of a number of reservoirs, particularly in protected areas. According to preliminary estimates, the damage to the environment from the explosion of the Kakhovskaya HPP reached $1.5 billion.
Yermak reminded that environmental safety is one of the conditions of the "peace formula" for Ukraine.
"Item 8 of Volodymyr Zelenskyi's Formula of Peace, "Environmental Safety", is the way to take responsibility for ecocide and prevent the repetition of such crimes in the world in the future," he said.
It should be noted that one of the biggest sources of danger after the explosion of the Kakhovskaya HPP was considered to be the sludge at the bottom of the reservoir, in which radionuclides accumulated. However, scientists refuted these fears after studying the reservoir.
Recall that at the beginning of July, the first sprouts of plants appeared on the bottom of the Kakhovsky Reservoir, which were still too small to be identified.
As EcoPolitics previously reported, in Kharkiv Oblast a year and a half after the almost complete shallowing of the Oskil reservoir, the dam of which was blown up by the occupiers, natural landscapes began to be restored, which is likely to happen on the territory of the shallowed Kakhovsky reservoir.
