Environmentalists Krasnodar region sent a RPN for the Southern Federal District and the prosecutor Temryuk District requesting to inspect the oil spill in the Kuban River and take steps to eliminate it, told RIA Novosti on Friday EkoVahty activist in the North Caucasus, Dmitry Shevchenko.
"There is waterlogged boat, which is obviously leaking. Sturgeon plant workers were told that there are constantly coming to pump water, but for some reason the last few days it is not pumped out, causing the ship heeled over more and settled in the water. Obviously, that water has flooded the engine compartment and washes out diesel fuel and oil ", — said the ecologist.
RIA Novosti does not yet have confirmation that received a request from the state authorities and ecologists.
Residents Temryuk district of the Krasnodar Territory on January 30 asked the EkoVahtu, saying that a few days before, on one of the boats began leaking diesel fuel into the water. Activists of the environmental organization claimed a significant damage to the environment.
