Environmental impacts of the Russia-Ukraine conflict
On February 22nd, Vladimir Putin declared two separatist Ukrainian regions Donetsk and Luhansk as independent, after years of conflict. The 1,50,000 troops that are lined along the Ukrainian border could result in the greatest war that Europe has seen in the past couple of decades. It could lead to thousands of civilian deaths, a potential refugee crisis and global economic downfall. And this could also create irreversible damage to the regional as well as the global environment.
