Thousands of gallons of deadly chemicals from Azovstal plant could leak causing extinction of life

The Russian bombing of Ukraine’s Azovstal steel plant could have “dire consequences” with a climate threat that could lead to toxic chemicals being dumped into the Black and Mediterranean seas.

Vadym Boychenko, mayor of war-torn Mariupol, said the bombing of the Azovstal iron and steel plant, which contains tens of thousands of tons of concentrated hydrogen sulfide solution, could cause a catastrophic leak.

This leak could cause a ‘world-class environmental catastrophe’, says Mr Boychenko, who said: ‘The leak of this liquid will completely kill the flora and fauna of the Sea of ​​Azov. Then dangerous substances can enter the Black and Mediterranean seas.

This could cause the total extinction of life in the Sea of ​​Azov.

The mayor called on the United Nations experts to be granted immediate admission to prevent the climate threat, according to the Ukrainian television station EspresoTV.

Boychenko believes that Russia is trying to create a ‘ghetto’ in Mariupol, and that the chemically contaminated water supply would cause a different kind of crisis for Ukraine.

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24 and the plant was stormed on April 19. Large areas have been destroyed, but organized groups of resistance fighters, the Azov Battalion, who refuse to surrender, have been plotting at the plant for several weeks.

The Russian bombing of Ukraine’s Azovstal steel plant could have “dire consequences” with a climate threat that could lead to toxic chemicals being dumped into the Black and Mediterranean seas.

Members of the Azov Regiment have stubbornly continued to fight Russian troops at the steel mill in the maze of tunnels inside Azovstal after more than 250 Ukrainian soldiers surrendered after weeks of desperate resistance, ending the most devastating siege of the war. of Russia in Ukraine.

Ukraine last week accused Russian forces of dropping phosphorous bombs on Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant on Sunday, as families of fighters trapped in the sprawling compound said they feared their fighting was coming to an end.

An aerial video posted on social media on Sunday showed the attack on the plant, where Ukrainian soldiers have been making a last stand against the Russian attack on the port city that has been reduced to rubble.

After weeks of siege and Russian shelling, Mariupol, which is in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region, is in Russian hands, but hundreds of Ukrainian fighters are holding out under heavy fire at the steel mill.

Several civilians sheltering at the plant were evacuated this month with the help of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN.

Footage of the attack begins with an aerial view of the large Azovstal plant, when suddenly a Russian missile detonates in mid-air, unleashing a barrage of fire on the already badly damaged factory buildings.

The ‘sparks’, which are actually a group of incendiary munitions, fall to the ground and ignite. From a distance, the explosions look almost like firecrackers, but are actually a series of countless detonations.

As the camera pans, more bursts of munitions are seen erupting over the plant, raining down burning explosives from above.

The attack is relentless, with hundreds of sparks landing on the roofs and floors of the steelworks and setting them on fire.

The Ukrainians claimed the video showed Vladimir Putin’s forces dropping 9M22S phosphorous and incendiary bombs on Azovstal, which an official said burn at temperatures above 2,000 degrees Celsius.

Ukraine’s State Inspectorate for Nuclear Regulation warned that the latest bombing risked a major environmental disaster: “The continuation of its bombing may have serious radiation consequences with the contamination of nearby territories.”

Ukraine’s First Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzheppar said: ‘The Russian aggressor fired “Grad” rocket systems on the territory of the Kharkiv Institute, where the “Neutron Source” nuclear facility is located, in the active zone of which they loaded 37 nuclear fuel cells.

‘The destruction of a nuclear facility and storage facilities for nuclear material could lead to a major environmental disaster. Ukraine continues to collect evidence of (Russian) war crimes in The Hague’.
