As Igor Sikorsky, the so-called “scientist” of the “Opuksky Reserve” controlled by the Russian invaders, stated, there is an unusual set of species of migratory waterfowl for such a period in the bays and reservoirs of the occupied Crimea in December, 2022.

Among other things, he explains this anomaly by the “turbulent situation in the Kherson region”, where there are Ukraine’s traditional large-scale wetlands located, protected by the Ramsar Convention, the territory of which has been massively shelled by the Russians troops in the last month.

In fact, even invaders-controlled structures are forced to recognize the impact of large-scale Russian aggression and related hostilities on the ways and forms of bird migration, which can have unpredictable and significant environmental consequences.
