On May 31, the aggressor country launched missile attacks on a chemical plant from Severodonetsk. This city is almost the end of the Lugansk region. It is bordered by the Donetsk and Kharkiv regions. Moreover, Severodonetsk is now undergoing brutal battles. However, the Russian command does not stop the danger to the Ukrainian people and Russian soldiers. They struck the chemical plant. An airstrike destroyed a reservoir of nitric acid. Above the city rose a pink and orange cloud. People have been asked to stay in shelters and prepare wet masks.
"Nitric acid is dangerous in inhalation, ingestion, and contact with the skin and mucous membrane. Acid vapor irritates the airways. With mild poisoning, signs of bronchitis, light bronchiolitis, dizziness, and drowsiness, in case of severe poisoning, to protect against vapor and mist, nitric acid use gas masks. Prepare protective masks for the face soaked with soda solution," the head of the Lugansk regional military administration Serhii Haidai made a statement.
Information on the scale of the tragedy and the number of victims has not yet been officially reported.
Recall that on May 30 the Russian invaders attacked the Donetsk region. Through their actions, the occupiers damaged the pipeline with ammonia.
It should also be noted that important industrial plants are concentrated in Lugansk and Donetsk regions. They contain large amounts of substances that, if leaked strongly, can harm people, animals, and the environment.
