As we reported earlier, Roman Abramovsky, Ukraine's Minister of Environment and Natural Resources, said that there would be more plastic in the Black Sea than fish by 2050.

According to the official, the bank of the Dnipro river is extremely littered with plastic bottles, bags, and leftovers. Waste is dumped directly on the shore of the country's main waterway.
