"The ecological disaster is observed in the village of Koktebel in occupied Crimea. According to the results of seawater studies, the content of ammonium ion exceeds the norm by 168 times.

The blogger writes that ammonium ion is a product of ammonia decomposition. "Essentially, these are phosphate-ion sewage drains – the maximum permissible amount is exceeded by 39 times! Anionic surfactants exceed the maximum permissible amount by 20 times! This is caused by detergents, etc.," the blogger explains.
