Zelensky on the consequences of the explosion of the Kakhovka HPP: hundreds of thousands of people were left without normal access to drinking water
President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the bombing of a strategic dam in Nova Kakhovka by the Russian military hasled to a shortage of drinking water for people living in southern Ukraine. The occupiers completely deliberately destroyed one of the largest reservoirs in our country.
The words of the guarantor are reported by the press service of his office. He stressed that Russia is a threat not only to Ukrainians, but also to all life.
"Hundreds of thousands of people were left without normal access to drinking water. Our services, all those who can save people, are already involved in the work. But we can help only in the territories under our control," the president stressed.
In the Russian-occupied part, the occupiers do not even try to help people. This once again shows Moscow's goals in this war: not to help, not to denacify, but to banally destroy everything.
"Right now everyone can observe with what cynicism Russia treats those whose homes it has seized. What it brings to the people, to Europe, to the whole world," Zelensky summarized.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that members of the UN Security Council expressed solidarity with Ukraine and agreed that the flooding in the Kherson region would never have happened if Russia had not invaded Ukraine. They pointed out that Moscow pledged in international agreements not to attack dams and other infrastructure of this type. However, this did not stop the invaders from blowing up the Kakhovskaya HPP.
