Residents of the Kherson region, living near the administrative border with the Crimea, distributed 20,000 gauze bandages in connection with emissions from the Crimean “Titanium” plant. The local authorities said that nobody was injured due to chemical emissions. This was announced at the press conference by the head of the Kherson regional state administration Andriy Gordeyev, Hromadske reports.
“People are provided with gauze bandages. 20,000 dressings were distributed through the Red Cross. No civilian who has suffered from pollution has been recorded,” said the head of the Regional State Administration.
According to him, in the Kherson region after the chemical emissions, the situation began to normalize. The air around the area, fruit and vegetables are being constantly tested.
Gordeyev added that since September 10 the Crimean plant “Titan” is no longer working. “We can assume that the plant is stopped. According to our information, there was an industrial accident. What caused it is unknown. But they conceal it from the population”, the chairman of the regional state administration emphasized.
In his opinion, “Crimean Titanium” should be transferred to the management of mainland Ukraine in order to contain the environmental situation.
In the north of the annexed Crimea, on the night of August 23-24, there was an outburst of unknown substance. The Russian media only on August 27 reported that the emission of an unknown substance in the north of the annexed Crimea resulted in an oily raid on the rooves and leaves in the city of Armyansk.
