In the village of Perekop near Armyansk in the annexed Crimea, trees and harvest were damaged as a result of chemical emissions.
Local residents report that some trees lost their leaves, and those left are covered with a yellow coating.
According to them, the leaves of tomatoes and pepper growing in the orchards had "burned" literally overnight.
Also, the yellowish coating is observed on the roofs of the houses, and after August 23 a smell of acid is felt in the air. Residents of the village complain about the deterioration of health.
After the emission of an unknown substance the occupation authorities of Crimea kept silent, but now they sprinkle roads in Armyansk (Ermeni Bazar) with a soda solution, RoksolanaToday & Crimea reported on Twitter.
“The roads were processed with the soda that was taken from Krasnoperokopsky soda factory in order to neutralize the effect of chemical emission. This procedure will be repeated this night,” the statement said.
Users of social networks say that metal surfaces in the city continue to be covered with rust, and local residents say it is still difficult to breathe because of air contamination.
Earlier, Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov stated that the occupation authorities of Crimea are doing everything possible to conceal information about chemical emission in Armyansk and called on the authorities of Ukraine to respond.
