The invaders destroyed the National Gene Bank of Plants of Ukraine
One of the world’s largest the National Gene Bank of named after V.Ya. Yuriev National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine, located in Kharkiv, was destroyed during the war.
This was announced by the leading researcher of the institute Sergey Avramenko on his YouTube channel.
Preservation and effective use of plant genetic diversity to ensure food, economic, environmental, social security and development is one of the most pressing problems of mankind. In Ukraine, these activities were initiated in the early 1900th by such prominent scientists as A.Ye. Zaikevych, P.V. Budrin, V.Ya. Yuriev, B.K. Yenken, M.I. Vavilov, M.M. Kuleshov, L.M. Delone and others.
With the proclamation of Ukraine’s independence in 1992, on the initiative of the Ukrainian Academy of Agrarian Sciences, the scientific and technical program “Plant Genetic Resources” was launched. The program is aimed at creating the National Gene Bank of Plants of Ukraine. It is performed by 28 leading breeding and research institutions that form the System of Plant Genetic Resources of Ukraine. For coordination and scientific and methodological guidance of the System on the basis of the Plant Production Institute named after VYa Yuriev, the National Center for Genetic Resources of Plants of Ukraine (NCPGRU) was founded. A powerful base for working with plant genetic resources was created by including several research units of the Plant Production Institute named after VYa Yuriev as well as of Ustymivka Experimental Station of Plant Production (which was previously part of the system of the MI Vavilov All-Union Institute of Plant Production) in the NCPGRU.
The bank kept more than 160 thousand varieties of plant seeds, and hybrids of agricultural crops worldwide.
These seeds were stored in special storage facilities so that future generations could restore themSergey Avramenko
He also stressed that seed samples were ordered by specialists from different countries, including Russia, to carry out selection work on a particular crop that would be adapted to a specific area.
The specialist added that there are those that no longer exist in Europe and the world among the destroyed samples.
On May 2, 2022, an online meeting was held with the leadership of the National Center for Genetic Resources of Plants of Ukraine, the V.Ya. Yuriev NAAS, National Coordinators of Plant Genetic Resources (PGR) of European countries: Frank Begemann (Germany), Jens Weibull (Sweden), Wieslaw Podima (Poland) and the leaders of the European Cooperative Program on Plant Genetic Resources – Lorenzo Maggioni and Imke Thormann. They praised the global importance of Ukraine’s genetic resources and the contribution of the Gene Bank of Ukraine to the European fund, expressed concern over the state of scientists and exploration and willingness to seek ways to provide technical and humanitarian support to the National Gene Bank of Plants of Ukraine.
Dear Sir,firstly in both country made wrongly,I want only peace no war.please don’t rely on NATO,0ranother. ,country’s help.They only want to sell their war tools
If it were up to me, Putin would die from 1 million tiny paper cuts
Don’t you dare try to “both sides” this. Russia just committed a crime against humanity, for reason except cruelty. *Another* crime against humanity.
This is just wanton widescale killing, rape, and cultural, economic and scientific vandalism by a barbaric and uncivilized invading horde. They should be pushed into the sea, every last one of them. Their country should face punishment, isolation and sanctions until they are reduced to a harmless agrarian backwater and their borders sealed for the next 100 years.
De plantenjager uit Leningrad van Louise o.Fresco laat zien hoe de Russische communisten aan de macht een dodelijke mix van ideologie,fraude en pseudowetenschap uitoefenen. Stalin of Poetin zijn mannen met te veel macht en te weinig inzicht
Fuck off pajeet and go to your designated shitting street
Death to Russia, war criminals and rapists need to go. Slava Ukraini, we are rooting for free and democratic Ukraine without Russian imperialism and control.
Destroying seedbanks is no different than burning books, a favorite pastime of the Nazis – both are destroying knowledge. And Putin claims he is fighting Nazis – he should look in the mirror.
This is an half truth, the main collection is still safe elsewhere, unscathed: https://www.newsweek.com/fact-check-ukraine-national-seed-bank-destroyed-russia-1707864
