The Black Sea has witnessed the heartbreaking demise of more than 5,000 dolphins, with experts pointing fingers at the sonar devices utilized by Vladimir Putin’s naval forces.
The renowned marine biologist, Ivan Rusev, has shed light on the heart-wrenching plight of these intelligent creatures. The sonar emitted from naval vessels is believed to be the primary cause of the dolphins losing their crucial ‘echolocation’ abilities.

As a result of this tragic loss of their natural guidance system, these once free-spirited creatures are now tragically crashing into rocks and mines, leading to their untimely deaths. Moreover, the dolphins are also facing starvation due to the inability to locate food sources efficiently.
The impact of this ecological tragedy is evident as dolphin corpses are washing ashore, bearing burn marks that only further reinforce the dire circumstances they have endured. This alarming discovery has left the world in shock and concern for the fragile marine ecosystem in the Black Sea.
As we come to terms with this heartbreaking news, it serves as a stark reminder of the far-reaching consequences of human conflicts on innocent creatures. Our hearts go out to these magnificent dolphins, and it is crucial for the international community to unite in efforts to protect and preserve marine life in times of crisis.
