Air pollution and related amounts of death are very important topics worldwide. Mortality from air pollution in Ukraine is relatively high. According to a WHO, study 54,507 people died from air pollution in 2012 in Ukraine. Statistics show 120 deaths per 100,000 population. Air pollution in Ukraine causes 4 times more deaths than in the 5 “cleanest countries” in the world. It is worth noting that according to two studies during 2020, high levels of air pollution increased the death risk from COVID-19. Ukraine has developed and adopted a National Emissions Reduction Plan which was aimed, in particular, for environmental modernization to reduce dust emissions.
