During three days of fires 6,000 hectares of forest and 39 houses in Zhytomyr region have been destroyed. We went to the villages that suffered the most: Magdin and Lichman. And provided people with sleeping bags, fresh water, food.
I appeal to the State Emergency Service. I suggest the creation of volunteer units to stop forest fires. These units will be consisted of veterans, volunteers and youth. If this is not stopped now, hundreds of people may be without a roof over their heads, and Ukraine may be left without forests.
The worst thing is that the cause of these fires is not the burning of dry grass, but total corruption and the attempt the cover of deforestation, which today has gone out of control.
