The Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, said that Ukraineʼs ecology suffered losses of $35.3 billion due to Russiaʼs attack.

"Millions of hectares of nature reserves are under threat. Article 55 of the First Protocol prohibits waging war against the natural environment through repression, but Russia does not care about that," the minister said.
