The military actions of the Russian Federation not only lead to the destruction of Ukrainian cities and villages, but also contribute to the destruction of the ecosystem in general and its components in particular. Therefore, there is an urgent need to assess the damage caused to the environment and convert it into a monetary equivalent in order to further take this damage into account for the aggressor to pay reparations. Such an assessment is also necessary to build a plan for landscape restoration and land reclamation, as well as to take preventive measures to preserve the life and health of the population. Watch Ukraine in flames #600 to find out more about the methodology and results of distance assessment, and we will also talk about recommendations to Ukrainian farmers based on this information.
