Occupiers damaged the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant

Russian war criminals have undermined the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, a few kilometers from the temporarily occupied town of Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region. As a result of the destruction of the dam, the water in the Kakhovka reservoir began to drop rapidly, threatening to flood. Officials announced the urgent evacuation of the population of the dangerous areas.

Kherson journalist Konstantin Ryzhenko reported about the terrorist act on the part of the occupants in the morning of June 6, having published images of the consequences in his Telegram channel. Later, information about the explosion of the waterworks was confirmed by the military, officials and the Interior Ministry (to view the footage, scroll to the end of the news).

Data on the explosion of the hydroelectric power plant

Note: On Tuesday night, Russian propaganda subpublics massively accused the Ukrainian army of blowing up the hydropower plant. According to official data, the Ukrainian Defense Forces did not conduct any military operations in this quadrant.

Around 06:00, the speaker of the operational command "South" Colonel Vladislav Nazarov confirmed that the Russian occupation troops undermined the HPP.

"Now the scale of destruction, the speed and volume of water, the likely areas of flooding are being clarified. All services are working. The situation is being monitored," he assured.



According to the propaganda of the occupants, there was allegedly an arrival at the hydroelectric facility at 02:45 - "one sash was destroyed and a cascading destruction began under the pressure of water. And already at 03:10 in the imagination of propagandists " Kakhovka hydroelectric power station ceased to exist". Moreover, the Russians even began to publish maps of the possible flooding.


"So, no kidding. The damage on the HPP is there. It's not destroyed, but it's still there. Looking for information. No tsunami," his first reports said.

Later he stated that the damage data was confirmed, so he appealed to residents of the left bank of the Kherson region to evacuate immediately.


From his analysis of the video, Ryzhenko suggested that the hydroelectric plant was blown up by the occupants from within.

"No missile or arta could have done such damage," he expressed his conviction.


According to some media reports, Russian terrorists blew up the lock of the Kakhovka HPP, most likely "using explosives planted as early as last fall."

"The occupants are very afraid that the Defense Forces might find themselves on the left bank. After all, they would have had to retreat 15-20 km in depth due to the peculiarities of the terrain. Therefore, they decided to commit an act of terrorism and acted in a preventive manner," the authors noted.


Some stressed that, given the situation, the residents of the coastal zone on the left bank of the Kherson region should have evacuated as soon as possible. They say, given that there will be no access to the sluice structures in the near future, it is not known how quickly the water level will decrease.

Still, people are asked to remain calm and keep an eye on further developments around the Kakhovka HPP.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, in April, the mayor of Kakhovka Vladimir Kovalenko said that the occupants additionally opened the floodgates near the engine room of Kakhovka HPP, because of this the local residents had water in the wells dropped, and in some places there was no water at all. At that time he spoke about the danger of flooding.
