Bisons, Flamingos, Zebras and Zrada

Zrada means “betrayal”…

Hanebna zrada (“a shameful betrayal”) has been committed by Usborne Publishing, a British publisher of books for children. They have published a cute atlas which says Crimea is a disputed territory instead of being occupied by Russia.

The bisons, zebras and flamingos look rather odd but they actually mark a very interesting place, the Askania-nova nature reserve, which features these animals grazing in an open steppe of the Kherson region. The atlas features an interesting selection of heritage sites, and seems like a very good book for kids.
