The operational command "Pivden" ["South"] reported that the Russian occupation forces blew up the Kakhovka HPP, later the regional military administration confirmed this information.
The Kherson RMA reported that units of the National Police and the State Emergency Service of the Kherson region were alerted to alert and evacuate the civilian population from potential flooding zones on the right bank of the Dnipro River, namely: the villages of Mykolaivka, Olhivka, Lyovo, Tyaginka, Ponyativka, Ivanivka, Tokarivka, Poniativka, Prydniprovske, Sadov, and partly the city of Kherson - Korabel Island.
The blowing up of the Kakhovka HPP by the Russians may deprive the residents of the Kherson region and occupied Crimea of drinking water, and also poses a threat to the Zaporizhzhia NPP.
This was stated by the head of the OP Andriy Yermak.
"Kakhovka HPP. Another war crime by Russian terrorists. The president is gathering the National Security and Defense Council. This is ecocide," according to the statement of the head of the OP.
