Russia strikes at Dnipro hydroelectric power plant

On Friday, March 22, Russian occupants launched 12 missiles at Zaporizhzhia, hitting the Dnipro hydroelectric power plant, in particular. During the attack, an enemy missile also hit a trolleybus moving along the dam. This blocked traffic.

There is no threat of water leakage, the situation at the plant is under control. This was reported by Ukrhydroenergo and the Patrol Police of the region.

"Unfortunately, the largest hydroelectric power plant in Ukraine, Dnipro HPP in Zaporizhzhia, was also hit. The inhumans did not calm down after destroying Kakhovka HPP and are now trying to create a new environmental disaster by cynically hitting the Dnipro HPP and the dam," the hydroelectric company said.
