Brown, pink snow 'not harmful to residents'

Dzerzhinsk-Russia-Pollution

Dzerzhinsk, Russia

Though additional tests have yet to be done, the Russian state consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has come out and said that the brown and pink snow that has fallen in parts of the Russian south “is not harmful to residents.”

Again, test results are still pending, but apparently it’s just some Africa dirt kicked up by winds and mixed into the clouds that have produced this phenomenon. Or it’s another manifestation of the dire state of Russia’s ecosystem. (Let’s recall that this is a country that turned seas into saltbeds and where the sky can be a repository for all sorts of things, depending on the Stalin-era factory still churning in the area.)

In any case, though, don’t worry about it!
