According to the Director of the Russian Institute of nature, honored ecologist of Russia Andrei Peshkov, spills fuel in Russia will continue and, if the situation does not change, the country could become a “cesspool”. He stated to the TV channel “360”.
“Rambler” wrote that on may 29 on-site combined heat and power (CHP-3) a subsidiary of “Norilsk Nickel”, Norilsk-Taimyr energy company spilled more than 20 thousand tons of diesel fuel, which fell into the water.
According to Peshkov, the incident with the spill of fuel will increase, as what was built in the years of the Soviet Union, has already exhausted itself. And all this without doubt will have an impact on the environment.
“Russia as a global reservoir of residues of nature, such a role may be his to lose and become garbage. Not the focus of clean natural ecosystems, and the focus areas of catastrophic pollution”, – he stressed.
Director of the Russian Institute of nature also said that you should think about establishment of the presidential Council for the environment, and “to seriously” problem.
