Environmental performance at the crash site of a foreign tanker “Delfi” near Odesa is gradually improving. The deputy chief of the State Ecological Inspection of the district Mykola Gavrykov told about it, Radio Svoboda reports.
It is noted that water samples are being taken twice a day.
"On November 22, on the day of the accident, the norms exceeded by 53 times, then by 90 times, then at night it was the highest figure - by 157 times, and then the excess began to subside. As we were told by the administration of sea ports of Ukraine, there was essentially no fuel, only residues. They were washed out because the ship was tilted. On November 24, the excess was 19 times, and as of now, November 25, water is already in a normal state," Gavrykov stated.
Eco-inspection reportedly calculates compensation sums - the spot was large, 100 by 200 meters. Claims for compensation will be lodged to the owner of the ship, who has 30 days to pay.
As we reported earlier, police have opened criminal proceedings regarding the tanker “Delfi” accident, which occurred near Odesa. This was informed by the press service of the National Police of the region.

The sanction of the article provides punishment in the form of correctional labor for a term up to two years, or restraint of liberty for a term up to three years.
