Russian emergency teams arrive to flooded areas in Kherson

Moscow, Jun 8 (Prensa Latina) A working group of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, headed by Deputy Minister Anatoly Suprunovsky, arrived at the site of the floods in Kherson, the press service of that Ministry reported.

“In accordance with the order of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a group of the central apparatus of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations headed by Suprunovsky is working in the emergency zone,” the state agency’s press release detailed.

Under his leadership, a visiting meeting of the governmental commission to evaluate the consequences of floods on the territory of the Kherson region was held with the participation of the deputy governor Alexander Yakimenko,” the report said.

In the early morning of June 6, Ukrainian troops attacked the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station with missiles. As a result, the gate valves were destroyed, which led to uncontrolled water spillage.

In the flooded area there are 35 settlements and territories. Residents of nearby settlements are being evacuated. According to authorities, five people have died and more than 40 have been hospitalized.
