Russia investigates versions of Ukraine’s attack on the Kakhovka dam

Moscow, Jun 7 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that investigators are considering all versions of Ukraine's attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant, since it is difficult to analyze the situation due to the collapse of the structure.

The Department of Military Investigation opened a criminal investigation into the terrorist attack due to the collapse of the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant and the flooding of the area, the official website of the Ministry of Defense highlighted.

Experts continue to inspect the site, but the significant collapse of the structure makes it difficult to analyze it.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a missile attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station early on Tuesday, resulting in the destruction of the gates that led to the uncontrolled release of water.

The water level reached 12 meters in Novaya Kakhovka, and 14 settlements are flooded at the moment. It is estimated that some 80 settlements may end up underwater.

The collapse of the dam has caused severe environmental damage, farmland along the Dnieper has been washed away, and there is a risk that the North Crimean canal will lose its flow.

The press secretary of the Russian presidency, Dmitri Peskov, described the attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station as deliberate sabotage by Ukraine. He added that the Kiev regime must bear full responsibility for the consequences.
