Webinar „Fighting Russian Ecocide in Ukraine“

28. Juni 2023online

Russia’s war of aggression is causing immense suffering not only to the people and infrastructure of Ukraine, but also to its flora and fauna. The scale of destruction inflicted on nature is described by experts as ecocide.

Russia has illegally logged and burned unique Ukrainian forests, contaminated water, air and soil, mined thousands of kilometres of land, and destroyed countless wild animals, pets and livestock. The terrorist attack on the Kakhovka dam demonstrated the cruelty and ruthlessness of the Kremlin.
