Svidok.org is its native repository of memories of Ukrainians

The online platform Svidok.org. has launched an all-Ukrainian anonymous collection of testimonies about Russian war crimes against the environment in Ukraine.

The collected data will be transferred to the International Criminal Court, the Prosecutor General's Office, and investigators, according to Dmytro Lubinets, the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, on Telegram.

He said that the platform allows people to leave stories about the Russian ecocide, photos, videos, etc. on the link. The platform guarantees anonymity.

Lubinets noted that Svidok.org is a repository of Ukrainians' memories. On the portal, people anonymously describe their experiences during the war, and evidence of war crimes committed by the terrorist country is collected.

"Russia must answer for all crimes in Ukraine," he emphasized.

Also, on the platform you can read stories from different people and about the activities of a number of organizations.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that for two years of a full-scale war, environmental damage from Russian aggression reached $63 billion. This amount does not take into account all the losses in the occupied territories, because specialists do not have access to them.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, environmentalist Anna Kuzemko warned that due to Russian aggression, Ukraine may lose valuable biotopes, in particular chalk mountains, steppe meadows and desert steppes in the coastal strip.
