Zelensky: Invaders have mined the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station and are planning a terrorist attack

Russian troops have mined the dam and units of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station and are planning a terrorist attack under a “foreign flag”. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky in an address to the European Council.

“If Russian terrorists blow up this dam, more than 80 settlements will be in the zone of rapid flooding, including Kherson… A Russian terrorist attack may leave the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant without water for cooling – water for the ZNPP is taken from the Kakhovka reservoir. Even the operation of the canal built to supply water to the Crimea and which Moscow allegedly “bakes” from time to time will be completely destroyed,” the Ukrainian leader said.

He emphasized that Russia is creating the basis for a large-scale catastrophes in the south of Ukraine. The dam of this hydroelectric power station contains about 18 million cubic meters of water. The President added that hundreds of thousands of people could suffer, and the consequences of this terrorist attack could become a historical catastrophe.

“Russia has already prepared everything to carry out this terrorist attack. Ukrainian workers were ejected from the Kakhovka station – there are only Russian citizens there. They have full control of the station. We must act immediately so that Russia does not have the opportunity to realize this catastrophe», — the president noted.

He stressed that an international observation mission is needed at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. Zelensky added that Ukrainian personnel should be returned there and immediate and professional demining of the units and the dam should be ensured.

  • Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that the occupiers could blow up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, but then the Russian Federation would cut off the water in Crimea.
