Recently, Czech ecology and sustainable development experts collected soil samples in craters left by Russian S-300 missiles in Zaporizhia, as well as sediment samples from the Dnieper River and part of the bottom of the Kakhovsky Reservoir near the city.
Czech experts began a very important study by collecting sediment samples from the bottom of the Kachovsky reservoir and soil from the areas of rocket craters. The purpose of these studies is to identify possible threats to the environment and human health after the continuous incident of exploding rockets in the region and the presence of the nearby Nuclear Power Plant in Zaporizhia.
In recent weeks, a series of rocket explosions have occurred over the Kachovsky Reservoir near Nikopol, causing several craters in the surrounding fields and reservoir. Citizens of Nikopol live in an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear related to both the safety of their families and the impact of the explosion on the environment.
In response to these events, Czech experts, specialists in various fields of science, including geology, chemistry and ecology, started cooperation to thoroughly study the effects of these explosions. Sediment samples taken from the bottom of the Kachovsky reservoir and soil from the areas of rocket craters will be subjected to precise analyzes in order to determine the degree of contamination and potential threats to health and the environment.
In the face of these events, the Ukrainian authorities, together with international partners, are taking all possible measures to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Nikopol and at the same time focus on research to ensure the security of the region and avoid similar incidents in the future.
The inhabitants of Nikopol live in a tense atmosphere, but the results of these studies can provide key information that will help to take appropriate countermeasures and prevent serious threats.
This was done by the coordinator of the Czech-Ukrainian project “Clean Air for Ukraine”, Marcela Chernokhova (NGO Arnica, Czech Republic), ecology and sustainable development expert Oleksiy Angurets and experts from the company Dekonta. This was reported by the informant, referring to the website “Clean air for Ukraine”.
The samples will be delivered to the certified Dekonta laboratory in the Czech Republic, where they will be analyzed.
