Greta Thunberg Demands Russia Be Punished For Ecocide In Ukraine

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg has demanded that Russia be held accountable for the destruction of the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, which she described as an ecocide.

She reported this on her twitter account, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"This ecocide as a continuation of Russia's unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine is yet another atrocity which leaves the world lost for words. Our eyes are once again on Russia who must be held accountable for their crimes," Thunberg wrote.
