"It could be nuclear weapon." The famous Ukrainian champion commented on the bombing of the Kakhovka HPP
The famous Ukrainian high jumper Yulia Levchenko believes that because of the war the next generations of Ukrainians will not be able to please their fans with successes in international sports arenas. Given the recent events in the Kherson region, the vice world champion did not rule out the use of even more deadly weapons by the Russian occupiers.
"If you see Ukrainian athletes on the field...Just know, we may be the last...If this does not stop, our future is in big question. The other question is, if today it's a dam, tomorrow it could be a nuclear weapon. It wouldn't come as a surprise to me. People have nothing sacred." Levchenko wrote on her Instagram, adding a photo of the stadium in Nova Kakhovka before and after the blowing up of the hydroelectric plant.
Previously, Levchenko admitted in an interview that the world continues to support Ukraine in its opposition to the Russian occupiers. At the World Athletics Championships, held in Eugene, USA, Yulia had an incredible experience.
Recall that on the morning of June 6, it became known that Russian occupants had blown up the Kakhovka HPP.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called Russia's terrorist attack the largest man-made eco-catastrophe in Europe in decades, while Western leaders one after another held Russia responsible for blowing up the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant and noted that "terrorists do not stop if they are not stopped."
Evacuation was announced in the settlements of Kherson, which are in the flood zone. According to the UN, by the evening of June 6, 16,000 people had lost their homes.
