After the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant was blown up, the occupiers banned evacuation from the flooded areas and kicked civilians out of two-story houses
Russian occupants continue to commit atrocious crimes on Ukrainian soil. After the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant, they not only prohibited evacuation from the flooded areas, but also kicked civilians out of two-story houses to escape the flooding themselves.
This is what is stated in the operational report of the General Staff as of the evening of June 7. From the crimes of the invaders suffer, in particular, the residents of Gola Pristan in the Kherson region.
"The Russian Federation is not concerned with the problems of the local population in the occupied territories and is capable of all kinds of crimes and large-scale destruction," the report reads.
For example, in the town of Gola Pristan, the occupants are kicking the owners of two-story houses out of the premises and are settling in them themselves.
Moreover, the invaders set up firing positions on the roofs of these buildings.
But that is not all the atrocious acts the occupiers are capable of. According to the General Staff, residents of the village of Cossack Camps, who found themselves in the waterlogged zone, did not wait for help from the occupying authorities and tried to leave the partially waterlogged village on their own.
But Russian servicemen drunkenly blocked all possible ways of leaving the town and prohibited the evacuation.
We would like to point out that the occupants blew up the Kakhovka HPP on the night of 6 June, at 2:50 a.m. The president of Ukraine convened an urgent meeting of the National Security and Defence Council after that. Volodymyr Zelensky called the terrorist attack by Russia the largest man-made ecological disaster in Europe in decades.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, as of 14:00 on Wednesday, the Interior Ministry of Ukraine reported that 29 settlements were affected by the flooding, of which 19 are in Ukrainian-controlled territory, 10 are under temporary occupation.
The Maxar company also published satellite images of the consequences of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant explosion. According to the company's estimates, more than 2,500 square kilometers of the south of Ukraine were affected by the floods.
