The number of dead animals has reached the highest level in the last ten years.
In Russia, on the coast of the Caspian Sea, about 2,500 bodies of dead seals were washed ashore in a few days. This was stated by the authorities of Dagestan, reports the Russian service BBC NEWS.
It is reported that on December 3, conservationists counted about 700 dead Caspian seals, but by December 4, their number increased and reached the largest scale in the last ten years – 2500.
The Ministry of Nature of Dagestan said that a mass the death of seals is due to natural causes and will not affect the population of animals. The department claims that during the autopsy of the bodies they collected a large amount of samples, conducted a detailed bacterial analysis, virological studies, including the study of tissues for the presence of the COVID-19 virus.
However, earlier information appeared in the Russian media that the seals probably died due to the release of natural gas. This is due to the fact that the Caspian Sea basin is characterized by various oil and gas manifestations.
Note that it is from the Caspian Sea region that Russia regularly launches missile strikes against Ukraine. From there, the invaders launch Caliber cruise missiles from ships, as well as Kh-101 and Kh-555 with the help of Tu-95 and Tu-160 bombers.
