KHARKIV — There’s a critical situation in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, and it doesn't involve human rights. If the city zoo doesn’t get more money by Monday, officials say the animals there will begin to die of starvation.
Zoo director Aleksey Yakovlev says that there is a pregnant elephant named Tandy who is on the verge of exhaustion and the staff fear that she is on the verge of a miscarriage and death.
The money for the zoo is allocated by the city, buhe last payment from the Treasury was in January for 1 million Ukrainian hryvnia ($106,000), reports Komsomolskaya Pravda. It takes about 20,000 hryvnia ($2,100) every day to feed the animals.
The zoo has set up a bank account and is pleading for donations from animal lovers. The account details can be found here.

However, the company has announced plans to fly the machine faster than 300 mph (480 km/h) before the year is out, and also to sell similar propulsion systems to companies developing electrical air taxis or small commuter planes.
