Russian Rivers Suffer from Pollution
Some Russian rivers

Russian scientists beat the alarm Russian rivers receive over 11 million tons of pollutants each year.
      
      Pollution makes about 40% of Russians to use water of poor quality for drinking and cooking. About one fifth of all illnesses in our country are caused by water.
      
      Agriculture is the main source of water pollution, since no one filters water before releasing it to nature, researchers say. Same happens in large cities, like Moscow and St. Petersburg.
      
      We desperately need to cut water pollution by combining ecological and legal mechanisms.
