    case question

    hi,
    why is ликвидацию in the accusative and not the dative like жертвам?
    Заранее большое спасибо

    Американская администрация объявила Новый Орлеан зоной бедствия. Конгресс США выделил 62 миллиона долларов на помощь жертвам урагана и ликвидацию последствий «Катрины».

    After what has been said and shown on TV, it's better to put the word Ликвидация in Genitive case.

    Ага, многие жители стали не только жертвами урагана, но и жертвами ликвидации его последствий.
