The situation with the emission of the unknown chemical substance in Crimea is now beyond normal. Sergei Aksenov, the pro-Kremlin 'leader' of the Cabinet of the Russian-annexed Crimea posted that on Facebook.
'According to the preliminary data of Rospotrebnadzor, the said incident is not a threat to the public health. From the point of view of visual signs, the situation is beyond normal', Aksenov wrote.
He added that the necessary samples were collected; so far, the given substance's origins are unknown.
According to Aksenov, the emission of the substance occurred at 'Titan', the factory owned by Groop DF, which, in turn, belongs to Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash.
“An unknown substance was discharged in Armyansk. A greasy mud with a yellow shade appeared on metallic objects, roofs and leaves on the trees,” Mikhaylichenko told the journalists.
According to him, an expert team of Ministry of Ecology and natural resources of Crimea, of the interregional directorate of Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Oversight of Russia, and the representatives of the Prosecutor’s Office arrived at the site.
