Russians Kill Red Book Animals of Ukraine

As a result of the explosion of the Kakhovka dam and the disturbed ecological balance, dozens of unique newts died in Kherson

The Ministry of environmental protection and natural resources reports another tragedy for the fauna of Ukraine. As a result of the Russian explosion of the Kakhovka dam, the Red Book newts that lived in the waters of the Dnipro began to be carried out to sea. This species of newt die in salt water. The national natural park Tuzlovsky Limany employees found 149 corpses of these rare newts. Another 55 newts were saved and resettled on various freshwater tributaries in the Danube biosphere reserve.

In the very first days after the Kakhovka tragedy, damage to the environment in Ukraine was $1.5 billion. Now the figure is already higher. However, in what measures is the life of animals evaluated?
