And over to Ukraine, where fish stocking has begun at the artificially created Kyiv Sea. This is just the first stage of regeneration after the death of hundreds of tons of fish in the reservoir. Our correspondent takes us there.
Grass carp separately, pike separately. At this sorting table, fish are being prepared to enter the deep waters.
In Tolokunsky Fish Farm, individuals that will join the fauna of the Kyiv Sea are grown and selected.

"I think 80 percent of the fish will get accustomed. It does not happen in the war without loss."
Fish stocking occurs annually. This year the number of fish to restore has been increased by 30%.
This is because more fish died this spring after draining the water in the reservoir.
Hundreds of tons of fish were killed under the ice.
More than one year’s usual fish population is required to restore the former variety.
[Victor Dronik,Head, Committee for Fisheries]: (male, Ukrainian)
"As of today and within a week ,we'll be releasing into the Kyiv reservoir about 600 thousand fish. But the work does not stop here."
Mainly herbivorous species have been released so far. Silver carp and grass carp were released on Monday.

"Fish stocking is the first step in restoring the former ecosystem of the Kyiv Sea. This will take place
here almost every day, until frost."
