In reality, the water emptied into the Black Sea, whose water level rose by 100 meters. This flood is a relatively recent event. It was a time when the first Greek and Scythian legends appeared. Those nations lived close to the coastline of the Black and Marmora Seas. The Black Sea flooded about 100-200 km of maritime coastline. This is how the Sea of Azov was formed, while many ancient settlements were buried under the sea. 28 HARMONY, HISTORY AND REHABILITATION Eschatological descriptions in the legends of many cultures contain amazingly similar details.
Economic activity in the Dnipro basin has developed without adequate economic or environmental considerations for many decades. It resulted in the formation of a sectoral and territorial economy with a dominant fuel-energy sector and metallurgical, defence, and machine-building industries, each of which is a heavy polluter with high energy consumption rates and large irrigated areas. We have every reason to believe that the most aggressive pollutants of the Dnipro and its reservoir are municipal utilities, ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, coking and chemical industries, the machine-building, transport, and energy sectors, and agriculture.
29 PRESERVING THE DNIPRO RIVER In ancient times, the Dnipro was known as a transportation route connecting the peoples of the Baltic, Black, and the Mediterranean Seas. The famous route from the Varangians to the Greeks played an important role in the history of Kyivan Rus. Another not so well-known route was from Bulgar to Kyiv, which went down the Dnipro and further by land to foreign lands. Some one thousand years ago this route connected the peoples in the Volga area (the Volga Bulgaria) with those living in the Dnipro basin.
