Damage to the environment
“Today, the damage caused to atmospheric air, water and land is already almost 2 trillion hryvnias. Subsoil damage is already about 6 trillion hryvnias. However, the work continues, we all understand that the main goal is to receive reparations for these losses. But, of course, we want to unify all approaches at the international level,” he said.
According to him, seven methods developed by the State Environmental Inspection and the State Geology and Subsoil Service are used for the calculation.
To improve these methods, the Ministry of Natural Resources collects information and analyzes all the developments of international experts, works on EU directives.
“I believe that these methods, which are now in place, will be partially changed after development. But now our main task is to collect cases. It will not be a big problem to recalculate later. However, it is important that we have a sufficient evidence base, which will be used in the future in order to receive all these compensations in court,” added Stavniychuk.
