Ammonia leakage caused by Russian missile fragment localized in Ternopil Region

The contamination of water, which occurred after Russia’s downed missile fragment hit fertilizer tanks in Ternopil Region, has been localized.

The relevant statement was made by Ternopil Regional Military Administration Head Volodymyr Trush on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The contamination of water has been localized in Kremenets District. Now all the settlements, except the village of Sapaniv, can use water for domestic needs,” the report states.

According to Trush, the regional laboratory center collects water and soil samples several times a day. In the village of Sapaniv, which is situated near the Ikva, the situation has not changed. The harmful substance levels are still above normal limits there.

The leadership of the district and community met with Sapaniv residents, explained the effects of the missile strike and provided recommendations on the use of water and soil. Drinking water was delivered to the village.

A reminder that, on April 5, 2022, Russia’s missile was downed by the Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense units over Ternopil Region. The missile fragments hit six mineral fertilizer tanks, causing the leakage of ammonia into soil and water.
