Details of the situation in the settlements affected by the Russian bombing of the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant were provided by the Kherson Regional Military and Civil Administration and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

The Kherson regional military administration stated that the water is gradually receding from Kherson. So far, the area of flooded areas has almost halved: from 139 to 77.78 square kilometers.

"During yesterday the water receded from three villages of Berislavsky district - Nikolayevka, Lvovo and Olgovka. On the right bank 32 settlements remain flooded, in which 3,821 houses were submerged. In the temporarily occupied territories 14 settlements are flooded. The roads between the villages are being drained little by little, but not all of them can still be used", the regional military administration said.


According to the Interior Ministry, as of 1 p.m., 3,821 houses were flooded in the region's Ukrainian-controlled territory.

"2,718 people were evacuated, including 190 children. Five people were killed. 35 people are considered missing, including 7 children," the Interior Ministry said.

In the Nikolayev region, which was also seriously affected by the consequences of the ecocide committed by the Russians, 31 settlements were flooded. They evacuated 982 people, including 167 children. One person died in the region.

"In Dnipropetrovsk region there is no water supply to almost 162 thousand subscribers in 34 settlements. The supply of drinking and technical water continues. Together with the local authorities we are looking for opportunities to return a stable water supply to citizens", - the message says.

The Interior Ministry said that the Headquarters for the elimination of the consequences of the explosion of the Kakhovska hydroelectric power plant by Russian terrorists continues its work.
