Azovstal bombing could kill flora and fauna of Sea of Azov
There is a threat of complete extinction of the Sea of Azov due to the bombing of the Azovstal metallurgical plant.
The Mariupol City Council reported this.
The destruction of Azovstal could damage a technical facility that holds back tens of thousands of tons of concentrated hydrogen sulfide solution.
Leakage of this fluid can completely kill the flora and fauna of the Sea of Azov.
After that, dangerous substances can get into the Black and Mediterranean Seas.
"As the mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boichenko noted, immediate admission to the facility of international experts and the UN is necessary to study the situation and prevent a world-class environmental catastrophe," said the Mariupol City Council.
To recap, the Ukrainian military kept Azovstal's defense for 82 days. The russian occupiers tried to wipe the plant off the face of the earth and then announced that they would turn the territory of the metallurgical plant into a "park zone."
The occupiers created a humanitarian catastrophe in Mariupol, destroyed almost all buildings, and killed more than 20,000 civilians.
Not only the shelling by the russians but also the consequences of the occupation lead to high mortality among the city's residents.
Mariupol residents die because of nervous breakdowns, lack of medical services, unsanitary conditions and destroyed immunity due to hunger.
Cholera can also spread through the destroyed water supply system in Mariupol, as sewage mixes with drinking water.
