During the hostilities, 80% of the Holy Mountains National Nature Park in the Donetsk region was destroyed. The press service of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources reported this. According to preliminary estimates, the losses amount to about five and a half million hryvnias. “Today, due to the actions of the Russian occupiers, 80% of this park has been destroyed.

According to their information, 60 to 70 percent of forest plantations, five thousand hectares, were destroyed by military actions in the National Park.
