Mariupol children recorded a video message to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and the Minister of Ecology Ostap Semerak with a request not to allow an ecological catastrophe in the city.
«I live in Mariupol, there are some Metinvest Group plants in my city. They make emissions killing me slowly, — children say in the video. — I cough, I have asthma, I am suffocated but nobody sees it. The plants say that everything is fine. Our President and Minister of Ecology close their eyes to it. Petro Alekseevich, I want to live. Ostap Semerak — I want to breathe. Rinat Akhmetov, stop slowly killing me. I want to live. I want to breathe.»
The problem of the endless emissions of Akhmetov's factories becomes more and more threatening every day.
The city authorities and the management of enterprises do not react and continue to assert that everything is fine.
«The Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine and Minister Semerak cynically continue to issue permits for emissions above the norm,» people note in the comments under the video. While in other countries enterprises operate according to all established environmental standards.
To once again draw the attention of the leadership to the problem of ecology, Mariupol residents on City Day will come to the central square in masks and respirators.
