The condition of the Dnieper river is critical. This was stated by the head of the National ecological Council of Ukraine, head of the Association of fishermen Alexander Chistyakov on a press-conferences, transfers “Interfax-Ukraine”.
“The condition of the Dnieper critical, he no longer roars, he groans. The river simply dies. It all started with the fact that the great river was blocked by dams, she lost her own course and is not able to flush that gets there. And on the banks of the Dnieper there are cities and chemical plants, with their drains and plums,” – said Chistyakov.
According to him, the problems of the Dnieper river must be considered including in the context of its tributaries.”From the face of the card of independence during the years of independence disappeared more than 10 thousand small rivers… They are overgrown, shallow and then disappear,” he added.
