The Russian-occupied city of Nova Kakhivka in southern Ukraine – home to a dam that Moscow and Kyiv have accused each other of targeting – is “flooding”, officials told Russian media on Tuesday.
“The city is flooded,” Vladimir Leontiev, head of the Russian-installed city administration, told Russian media.
The dam Kakhovka hydroelectric power station Southern Ukraine has become the latest casualty of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with both countries accusing the other of aggression. The burst dam flooded the war zone.
Ukrainian authorities said that the water level will reach a critical level in the next five hours. “The water will reach a critical level in five hours,” regional governor Oleksandr Prokudin said in a video on his Telegram channel.
