Cloud Seeding In Crimea Precipitates Environmental Concerns
The Russia-controlled administration in Crimea is calling in a plane to try and stimulate rain in the drought-hit region of central Crimea. Experts are warning of the possible impact on the environment and question the effectiveness of the plan. Crimea is facing increasing freshwater shortages. Ukraine closed a canal carrying water to the region after Russia seized control of the peninsula in 2014.
