Ukraine is a beautiful location having over 16 percent of its land covered in forest. In Ukraine, there are still ancient forests that have not been interfered with by people. Ukraine is also very renowned in terms of agriculture.
Ukraine’s forests are divided into four different regions:
1) Carpathian mountain forests
2) The northern forests (Polesia)
3) The forest-steppe
4) The steppe zone
Ukraine’s forests are home to many generations of trees. Pine, oak, hornbeam, European aspen, black alder, and hornbeam are the most common trees. Finding such trees and forests in today’s world is very beneficial for us. It is very important for us to have such forests in all aspects of human welfare. Whether it protects us from environmental pollution either beneficial to human health.
The war, which began in 2014 and escalated after a Russian invasion in February 2020, is expected to wreak havoc across Ukraine. More than fourteen hundred people have died as a result of this war. This war has not only cost the lives of civilians, but it has also wreaked havoc on Ukraine’s territory, the degree to which is still unknown.
There are still deadly attacks by Russia inside Ukraine. The president outlined the Russian attack that happened last Tuesday in a video statement. He claimed that the Russian strike killed 87 people. This attack in the Desna area is the deadliest yet.
This war has become a catastrophe for Ukraine’s forests that will have a devastating effect on our global environment in the years to come. According to a report, more than 10,000 acres of forest have been damaged in the Chornobyl. The flames generated by the Russian assaults and the woodland devastation are exceedingly hazardous to our climate. The fire is being worsened by the wind and dry conditions. Because of the fire, the dangerous and harmful wind is blowing all over this area. It might be terribly poisonous to human health.
Because of the Russian dominance of this area, it is hard to handle the fire. Now if this fire is not quenched and it is allowed to burn like this, then it has will become insanely risky to our meteorological conditions. The radiation from the explosion and the noxious particles that are still present in the environment of Chornobyl and adjacent regions will affect humans in both physiological and pathological ways.
The Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings, and the repercussions that are still present inside their genetics, are proof that explosive radiations continue to affect human health for years. Doctors and environmentalists claim Chornobyl and its environs are now in danger. First and foremost, war is incredibly destructive to humans, but now there are radiations in today’s explosions that are much more life-threatening. And damage human health in a very serious way, not only making people sick but also passing genetic abnormalities down through generations.
Deforestation causes harm to humans while also playing a major part in the disturbance of our ecosystem. It devastates the habitat of numerous animals, birds, and aquatic creatures. More than 100,000 birds come to the shores of Ukraine in winter to live here. Many rare species of birds are also found in them. Many important and rare creatures are depleted due to this war.
CNN News also sheds light on the fact that the Russian-Ukrainian war has been highly damaging to Ukraine’s woods.
In short, man is destroying his own environment. It is our own deeds that have brought us today to the point where the air is no longer able to breathe and the ground is no longer fertile enough to grow plants of the quality that were once produced.
One of the most hazardous repercussions of war is the influence on the climate. Just as the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki continue to teach us a lesson, similarly this teaches us that battle has resulted in the loss of humans, always.
We destroy our environment by utilizing the power of money, human technology, and everything else at our disposal.
Now the question that arises in every mind is how long will this war take which has so far claimed the lives of more than fifteen hundred people.
