On the night of 6 June 2023, Russian occupants blew up the Kakhovskaya hydropower plant. Ukrhydroenerho said that the hydroelectric power plant could not be restored.
The bombing of the Kakhovska hydroelectric power plant by the Russian occupants has caused a large-scale environmental disaster, flooding a number of settlements and carrying out rescue operations there under Russian shelling. In recent days there has been a decrease in water in the flooded areas.
The so-called Kakhovka Sea is rapidly losing water after the Russian terrorist attack on the hydroelectric dam. More than 80% of the water has been lost from the Kakhovka reservoir.
