"At these moments, Armyansk and its outskirts have been covered with sulfuric acid. People are writing it is like they are in a gas chamber. The panic has broken out since the occupiers will bring children to this 'gas chamber' soon [the children from the previously affected areas were evacuated to health resorts for two weeks and are returning soon]," a blogger whose nickname is Crimean Banderovets wrote on Twitter.

As UNIAN reported, in the early hours of August 24, an unknown chemical substance leaked into the air in the north of Russian-occupied Crimea.

It has been established that the emission took place at the local Crimean Titan plant.

The de-facto authorities did not announce an emergency situation, although children were evacuated from the area. The plant ceased its work for two weeks, the "authorities" alleged.

However, Chairman of Kherson Regional State Administration Andriy Gordeev said the Crimean Titan plant whose chemical emissions had recently caused a sharp deterioration in the health of people in the nearby settlements was still working.
