On June 6, the Russians blew up a dam on the Dnieper River in Nova Kakhovka in occupied Ukraine. Almost a month later, photos were posted online showing what the dam destroyed by the Russians looks like now.
The latest photos from the vicinity of the dam on the Dnieper River in Nova Kakhovka have appeared on the web.
According to Flash on Twitter, the photos are supposed to come from the left bank of the Dnieper, which is under Russian control in the occupied territory of Ukraine. The photos posted online show the damaged fragments of the dam, which is also a hydroelectric power plant.
In the background, you can also see a drained reservoir in which water from the Dnieper River was once collected.
Earlier photos from Nova Kakhovka were published by the MAXAR company. “The picture from June 16, which Schema has, shows the damaged dam in detail,” journalists write.
The company also published a photo of the Nibulon river terminal in the village of Kozacke, not far from the dam. “Previously (after the dam was destroyed), it was underwater. The new photo shows that the water has receded” – it was noted.
The dam in Nova Kakhovka was blown up on June 6. In total, dozens of towns were flooded.
It is almost inevitable that we will witness huge problems with harvesting and sowing for the next harvest. So we're going to see a massive impact on global food security – that's what's going to happen,” said Martin Griffiths, Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator.
The most difficult humanitarian situation is currently in Oleszki and Hola Prystani, occupied by the Russians and flooded by the flood, located on the left (eastern) bank of the Dnieper near Kherson.
