We must hold russia accountable for ecocide in Ukraine, — Kira Rudik at the meeting with the Swedish Minister for Climate and Environment

russia must bear responsibility for crimes against the environment in Ukraine, and the partners should recognize the ecocide committed by the aggressor. Ukrainian MP, «Golos» party leader, ALDE Vice President Kira Rudik announced this after the meeting with the Swedish Minister for Climate and Environment Romina Pourmokhtari.  «We emphasized the issue of recognizing ecocide in Ukraine. We are currently working with partners in this direction, so we have also sent a corresponding appeal to the Swedish Ministry of Environment. We also discussed nuclear safety issues and the situation with the occupation of the Zaporizhzhia NPP.
