Ecologists of the Kyiv Ecological and Cultural Center (KECC) have discovered the destruction of one of the largest populations of Red Book plants in the capital, Siberian cockscomb, on Obolon Island.

They reported this on their Facebook page.

Experts claim that the land plot with the habitat of rare plants was located near the pedestrian bridge on Obolon Island within the Dnipro Islands Regional Landscape Park. According to them, it was bulldozed and planted with ordinary lawn grass instead of the Red Book flowers.
