"A concrete catastrophe": volunteers rescue people in flooded Kherson under Russian fire. Video.
The Ukrainian authorities and volunteers continue to evacuate civilians in the Kherson region, which is suffering from flooding provoked by Russia after the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. It is not enough for the occupiers to have caused irreparable material damage to ordinary people, they also need to inflict physical harm.
A number of Ukrainian media outlets published footage of the risky rescue work on boats. Volunteers are rowing through the deserted streets of towns and villages that have overflowed into rivers (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page).
Shelling is heard from all sides. It would seem that things are getting much worse, but the Russian army keeps on "breaking the bottom" of its own cynicism.
We remind you that Kakhovka HPP was completely destroyed by Russia and cannot be restored. Due to the uncontrolled decrease in the level of the Kakhovka reservoir, there is a potential danger to the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia NPP.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that President Zelenskyy made an urgent address to the participants of the Bucharest Nine summit. He stressed that the explosion by the Russian occupiers was the largest man-made environmental disaster in Europe in decades.
"It is physically impossible to blow up the dam somehow from the outside - by shelling. It was mined. It was mined by the Russian occupiers and blown up by them," Zelenskyy said, clearly indicating who was responsible for the natural disaster in the region.
