The resistance movement constantly monitors the situation around the Kakhovskaya HPP. As already announced by President Volodymyr Zelenskyi, “equipment and dam of the Kakhovskaya HPP were mined by Russian terrorists.”
Also, the occupiers installed remote-controlled explosive devices in the drainage and sewage systems along the access roads to the Antonivsky Bridge. It is not excluded that their detonation can be carried out at the moment of accumulation of the civilian population there, which will try to move to the left bank of the Dnieper.
The enemy once again resorts to scorched earth tactics, and in this case adheres to the saying ” flood will come after us.” Such intentions indicate that the occupiers have decided to leave the right bank of the Dnieper, but at the same time inflict maximum damage on Ukraine and hinder further progress towards Crimea.
The dam holds 18 million cubic meters of water! A decrease in the water level of the Kakhovsky Reservoir will disrupt the functioning of the cooling infrastructure of the Zaporizhia NPP reactors, which could lead to a nuclear disaster. Undermining the dam or destroying the locks will flood 80 settlements downstream. Hundreds of thousands of people could be affected. and will make the operation of the North Crimean Canal impossible. And the Russians are already preparing a plan to blame Ukraine for this.
The devastating environmental, humanitarian, man-made consequences of this single Russian terrorist attack may become such that it will be called a historical disaster.
