Also the dataset includes some data on the fauna of birds, amphibians and reptiles for 2020 - 2021, which were not included in the main databases for these groups of animals within the Kharkiv region. Personal comment of Oleksii Marushchak - programmer of UNCG: "This dataset was published during artillery shelling of civilians by the army of the Russian Federation during the inhumane and spontaneous invasion to Ukraine. Death to the occupiers! Putin, go to hell!"
