The Ukrainian project of building a navigable canal on one of Danube's branches might have "serious and irreversible effects" on the ecosystem, said Leo Platvoet, the rapporteur of the General Assembly of the Council of Europe (APCE), in a press release published on the APCE website.
Platvoet, who made a visit to the Danube Delta between October 27 and 31, said organizations such as the European Commission and the International Commission for Protecting the Danube have asked Ukraine to stop the works in the Bastroe canal until a study on their impact on the environment will be carried out.
The attempts to convince Ukraine of the importance of such a study was unsuccessful, said Platvoet.
The Danube Delta, which spreads on the Romanian and Ukrainian territories, is "one of the most beautiful natural places in Europe," said Platvoet.
The APCE president, Peter Schieder has said in the past that his country, Austria, is one of the seven states through which the Danube passes and made a commitment to obtain clarifications from the Ukrainian part.
Platvoet will present a final report on the protection of the European deltas by 2005.
