Russian pipeline disaster spills oil into the Black Sea

estimates that the spill has already polluted over 9 miles of the Black Sea shoreline, which could be devastating to local flora and fauna if a thorough cleanup is not carried out. The organization further claims that slow responses by Rosneft and Transneft contributed to the extent of the damage, since the spill was not reported to authorities for many hours after it was discovered by the oil companies. WWF believes that the surface area and characteristics of the spill indicate that there could be as much as 500 to 700 tons of oil in the Black Sea, which would be approximately 100 times as much as originally reported.
