"We need green corridors, we need to deliver food and diesel, help who can....we need green corridors for the delivery of rubber aid and for the evacuation of transportable animals."
The zoo reported that the animals were dying of hunger and cold.
Earlier, Pinchuk said that frost-resistant animals in outdoor enclosures die of hunger, and exotic animals in need of heat die of hunger and cold. According to him, there is no electricity or gas in the park, the diesel has run out.
"We need green corridors to bring in diesel, heat and feed them. We can't take out rhinos and giraffes, big animals, we don't even have medicine to put them to sleep. We need to negotiate green corridors," he said.
