The occupiers have turned Melitopol, in the Zaporizhzhya region, into a landfill, and they have not removed household waste for weeks.
Waste is removed only under the condition of contacting the so-called city administration, but even in this case it does not always help, reports RIA-South.
The article emphasized that the occupiers are unable to maintain the existing landfills. Thus, in September, for almost a month, they could not extinguish the landfill near Yakymivka.
It is noted that garbage is not removed due to the lack of special equipment. After all, the one that remained from pre-occupation times is already broken.
"Unfortunately, the Rashists do everything as they do in the swamps, and in a year and a half of occupation, they turned modern Melitopol into a solid dump," the article says.
"This is the business card of Russia. They lived like that, and they were attracted to Melitopol. Next, wooden toilets on a multi-story building," Melitopol citizens wrote on social networks.
It is noted that the Russians plan to build three landfills for waste from the Rostov region in the temporarily occupied territories. New landfills are planned to be built in the Melitopol district and near Berdyansk.
Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that Russians take garbage from the Rostov region to the household waste landfills of the occupied Donetsk region.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, in the Zaporizhzhia region, the occupiers began destroying the banks of the Molochnaya River and plan to use its water to fill irrigation canals. Previously, its waters became white, covered with white foam and acquired a sharp unpleasant smell. The probable cause of the pollution was a sewerage break and falling of sewage into the river, however, the occupiers did nothing.
