Crimean highway near Feodosiya covered with sand piles. First consequences of destruction of Red Book plants on local beaches observed.
In the annexed Crimea, the route near the village of Beregove, not far from Feodosiya, is covered with sand carried by wind from the beach, the Crimean activist Aleksandr Talipov informed on Facebook.
According to him, the reason for the growing sand piles is that last year the grass on the local beaches was considered ruderal and destroyed with further leveling of sand.
No one has ever touched the grass here since the times of the USSR and not because of the lack of money, but because these plants hold beaches with their root system and do not allow sand to be carried away. In addition, these plants are unique and listed in the Red Book, which was correspondingly confirmed. A statement has been filed with the “police” and “prosecutor’s office,” we hope for an immediate response from law enforcement agencies, Talipov said.
On the video filmed yesterday, on April 7, Talipov recorded destroyed plants and provided an examination of scientists from the Karadag Nature Reserve that Red Book plants were growing on local beaches.
“And before the start of the holiday season, the beerhouse owners became active on the beaches in Berehove, permits were received for installing wooden houses, restaurants, and clearing the beaches of the Red Book plants. We are looking back to 5 years ago, it was 5 years ago that we first demolished beerhouses in Berehove and now they are coming back, more powerful, juicy,” the activist wrote.
Earlier it was reported that teachers from the village Mazanka in the Simferopol region were persuaded to sign documents on the transfer of their land plots for the construction of the Tavrida highway. Each gave 20 acres – under the promise of compensation. However, they no longer had any money or land.
