Stars dedicated to Ukrainian animals on the verge of extinction appeared on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Thus, UAnimals activists reminded the world that the steppe eagle, brown bear, Eurasian lynx, black stork and spotted owl may disappear forever due to the Russian war in Ukraine.
UAnimals activists have temporarily placed stars named after these animals next to the stars of Tom Cruise, Frank Sinatra, Arnold Schwarzenegger and other notable people honored on the Walk of Fame for their contributions to the arts and entertainment industry.
“Due to rocket attacks, explosions, landmines and other barbaric actions of the Russians, animals, both wild and domestic, are dying en masse. In connection with ecocide, additional sanctions should be introduced against the Russian Federation. The terrorist country must answer for violations of ecological security in Ukraine and participate in the restoration of the Ukrainian ecosystem after the war by paying reparations,” says UAnimals founder Oleksandr Todorchuk.
In total, more than 80 species of animals are under threat of extinction, as UAnimals activists reminded in Hollywood on the Walk of Fame.
20% of nature conservation areas of Ukraine suffer from the war, and millions of animals have already died. Therefore, UAnimals launched the international campaign #StopEcocideUkraine, which is designed to hold Russia accountable for environmental crimes committed during the war in Ukraine. As part of the initiative, activists communicate with Ukrainian and foreign politicians, as well as hold rallies in different parts of the world: from Warsaw to New York, from London to Prague.
