Commenting on the Security Council’s climate initiatives, Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine, drew attention to the flood in the occupied Crimea.
This was discussed at a briefing following a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council on June 18.
Danilov reminded that Zelensky proposes to plant a billion plants in three years to prevent climate problems and increase the number of forests. He called the “challenge of Ukraine” a drought.
“You know that the Crimean peninsula has been asking for water for a long time, and there is so much water today that they don’t even know what to do with it. And yesterday in the Ukrainian Kerch, and today in the Ukrainian Yalta. And there, unfortunately, it happened. God gave them too much water at once, “Danilov said.
The city center was all in the water. The flow of water from the locals demolished the gates, flooded the yards and flooded the cars.
In occupied Yalta, after long and heavy rains, the Vodospadna River overflowed its banks, the city was on the verge of disaster and may be completely without electricity.
At the same time, the Kerch mass media accuse the authorities of the occupiers of floods, who since 2014 – the moment of the capture of the Ukrainian peninsula – did not clean the rivers, which at that time served as drains and prevented “big water”.
