The State Border Guard Service and Emergency Service held the analysis for the presence of the toxic substances in Kherson region after the chemical emission from the Crimean plant “Tytan”. Vadym Chernysh, the Minister of of Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.

‘The State Border Guard Service along with the Emergency Service held the quick analysis; the gas analyzers show the presence of the pollutants, including one of the hazardous – sulfur dioxide that can make the sulfuric acid when it contacts with water. One of these factors we relatively easily monitor at the controlled territory. And this gap in the information field allowed by the occupation authorities during the week shows that they tried to hide the real situation as the wind was coming from the territory controlled by Ukraine to the uncontrolled territory,” he said.
