Translated by Kristina Rus

The very young-looking Deputy Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, Svetlana Kolomiets said on the Ukrainian channel 112: 

These are non-toxic materials, non-toxic emissions, combustion products are organic, oil products are organic, it’s CO2. According to expert estimates yesterday –  it is equal to emissions from just 100 thousand vehicles a day. If there was anything dangerous in the atmosphere to health, it would be recorded, and we would feel it on ourselves”.

KR: I think this video shows the effects are already evident. But at least she speaks very good Ukrainian!
