According to Yevgeny Skorobogatov, Senior Researcher with Kharkov National University’s Biology Department, predators and hoofed animals leaving the area of the antiterrorist operation for the Kharkov region are causing rodent populations in their natural habitat to increase.

The environmentalists claim there is no threat of predators’ overpopulation because their number has not yet reached dangerously high levels.
