Environmental damage caused by russian invasion estimated at UAH204 B

The amount of damage caused to the natural environment in Ukraine due to Russia's armed aggression stands at about UAH 204 billion.

This is according to the press service of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine.

"The team has developed 10 new methods for calculating the damage caused to the environment. Already, the amount of damages from Russian aggression has reached UAH 204 billion. These developments are of global significance. Russia is the main eco-terrorist today," the message reads.

It is specified that experts continue to document crimes committed by Russians against Ukrainian ecology. Since the full-scale invasion, more than 2,000 such cases have been recorded. The government is now preparing lawsuits to file with international courts.

As reported, Ukraine recently joined the LIFE program, which will help finance environmental projects even before the country joins the European Union.
