Russian emergency teams arrive in flooded parts of Kherson

Moscow, Jun 8 (Prensa Latina) A working group of Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations, reportedly headed by Deputy Minister Anatoly Suprunovsky on Thursday arrived in flooded parts of Kherson.

“Complying with the order of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, a main group of the domestic Ministry of Emergency Situations led by Suprunovsky is working on the emergency zone,” detailed the Ministry’s press release.

“Under his leadership, a visiting meeting of the governmental commission for defusing the floods’ consequences on the Kherson region was held, in which was present the Deputy Governor Alexander Yakimenko,” the report pointed.

In the early morning of June 6, Ukrainian troops attacked the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station with missiles. Consequently, the gate valves were destroyed, which triggered uncontrolled water spillage.

There are 35 settlements and territories in the flooded area. Residents of nearby villages are being evacuated. According to authorities, there have been five deaths and over 40 have been admitted to hospitals.
