Weakening Kakhovskaya HPP. It is currently impossible to establish the exact number of victims of the terrorist attack carried out by Russia. Dozens of people are believed to be missing. There may be many victims, probably 500 people died in Oleshki alone. This was reported by the Center for National Resistance.
The reason for such a mass death of people is the refusal of the Russians to evacuate. The water flooded the settlement, and the inhabitants were simply left to die. Russia, violating all the norms of international humanitarian law, refused to evacuate the Ukrainians.
The National Resistance Center reported on June 19 that the Russians in the temporarily occupied territories affected by the Kakhovska HPP explosion did not evacuate non-Russian passport holders.
“According to preliminary data, more than 500 residents of the temporarily occupied Oleshok, located on the left bank of the Kherson region, died as a result of the Russians' undermining of the Kakhovska HPP,” the Central Security Service reported.
They add that they did not evacuate those citizens who did not take Russian passports during the occupation. In doing so, Russia has once again violated all norms of international humanitarian law and common humanity, leaving local residents to die in deep water. The actions of the Russians against the civilian population have all the hallmarks of genocide, and all those who took part in the mistreatment of Ukrainians will be punished justly.
The Center for National Resistance calls on the local population to report available information about individuals who participated in the HPP detonation or the mistreatment of civilians on TOT to our Telegram bot," the organization wrote.
According to the so-called occupation authorities, the explosion of Kakhovska HPP did not affect people's lives in any way. In the Kherson region, the occupiers recognized the death of 35 people. Andriy Alekseenko, the so-called “the head of the government of the Kherson region” said that the “veterinary services” also disposed of thousands of corpses of dead animals.
The Russians did not help the population and did not let volunteers in, causing a humanitarian disaster. According to some sources, the water level in Goliya Prystan exceeded three meters. When the water receded, municipal workers and volunteers began to remove the bodies of the dead.
The Russian Federation refused to accept a UN humanitarian mission to the population of the left bank of the Kherson region, which suffered as a result of the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. Denise Brown, the UN's humanitarian aid coordinator in Ukraine, released a statement saying the Russian government had “so far refused our request for access to territories under its temporary military control.”
The UN made it clear that it is working with the governments of Ukraine and the Russian Federation to effectively deliver humanitarian aid to all people affected by the destruction of the Kakhovska Dam.
