The occupant forces of the Russian Federation continue their attempts to cause a large-scale environmental catastrophe almost in the center of Europe.
Near Vasylkiv, missile of the occupant hit the oil depot. As a result, thousands of tons of oil products are burning leading to the massive release of a number of toxic substances into the air.
For example, during a fire that broke out at one of the neighboring oil depots in 2015, three tanks with gasoline burned, 240 tons of oil products were spilled (90 tons into the ground, 150 tons into water objects). The soil was soaked with oil to the depth of 0,5 m. Water objects were covered with a dense film of petroleum products, preventing the access of oxygen into water bodies.
Combustion of petroleum products emits soot, carbon monoxide, oxides of sulfur and nitrogen. Upon reaction with water, these compounds form sulfuric, sulfurous and nitric acids. If these gases get on the mucous membranes, the acids will be formed in the human body causing chemical burns.
Inhalation of toxic smoke can cause symptoms of headache, nausea, sore throat, exacerbation of chronic respiratory diseases.
In order to minimize the negative impact on the population in the area affected by the catastrophe, it is necessary to stay at home, keep the windows closed, if necessary, breathe through damp cloth changing it from time to time.
Moreover, the shell of the occupants hit the fence of the radioactive waste disposal site of the Kyiv branch of the Radon Association. Although the storage facility itself has not been depressurized, there is no guarantee that the next shelling will not cause a massive release of radioactive substances into the air in the next few hours or days.
The occupants destroy all living creatures and the environment that will take centuries to restore.
One of the most effective solutions is for NATO countries to close the sky over Ukraine for Russian planes and cruise missiles.
