The Deputy chief of GU of EMERCOM of Russia in the Republic of Crimea Alexey Friedman reported that all work associated with the elimination of emergency situations carried out in full.

Monitoring in the region continues.

The situation with kislotoustoichivam chemical plant «Crimean Titan» has become aggravated in the end of August, when, due to emission of the pollutant on the roofs of houses and the leaves of the trees of the city of Armyansk and the surrounding villages formed the oily coating with yellow tinge. At the beginning of September has recorded the maximum allowable concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air. Chemical plant «Crimean Titan» is completely stopped. The government decided to evacuate children from the city of Armyansk and several villages to health institutions for three weeks in the region was introduced emergency mode.

Kislotostabilen is an open reservoir, built in the Soviet era. In recent years, the sump is considerably shallow, which led to the increase in the concentration of the remaining acid and evaporation of various chemicals into the atmosphere. The sump was filled with water coming through the North-Crimean channel, but after the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia, Ukraine has blocked the supply of the Dnieper water.
