Russian Occupiers Poisoned 7 Villages With Ammonia 

On May 30, a massive shelling of the Donetsk region damaged the ammonia pipeline "Togliatti-Odesa"

Russians continue to attack the Donetsk region. The head of the regional military administration notes that in some cities, more than 90℅ houses have been destroyed. This suggests that the Russian invaders are shooting at any object.

This assumption was confirmed when the Russians shot up a pipeline coming from the Russian Federation. The ammonia transmission line from Togliatti, a city in Russia, was cut due to a conflict between the two countries that began in 2014. Therefore, during the shelling of the Donetsk region, in particular, Bakhmut and the village of Mayske, the destroyed pipeline with toxic substances had a small area of impact.

The remaining ammonia emissions from the pipes extended to an area of 4 km. Thus poisonous substances covered the villages: Kodema, Gladosovo, Semigorye, Dacha, Mykolaivka II, and Dolomitne.

The village of Mayske, where there was a leak, immediately sent rescuers. 45 liquidators worked at the scene of the accident. The victims were avoided due to the prompt response of the Ukrainian side. All residents of the villages were warned about the danger. On May 31, it became known that only 35 Ukrainians remained at risk of poisoning.

"As of May 31, the only place where information about the smell of ammonia comes from is the village of Travneve. It is located in the zone of active fighting. 35 people live there," said the head of the Donetsk regional military administration Pavlo Kyrylenko.
