Thousands of Ukrainians flee after Russian forces blew up the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant on June 6.

This Kakhovka dam is one of the largest energy facilities and contains about 18 million cubic meters of water. The dam supplies fresh water for most of southeastern Ukraine and the Crimean Peninsula. The flooding disaster will unfold over the next 11 hours. 

  • This falls into genocide: 16,000 people from 80 settlements are at risk of flooding and are to be evacuated.
  • All the animals in the “Kazkova Dibrova” zoo in Kherson region have died due to flooding already. Millions of creatures of wild nature are doomed.
  • Ecocide: this terrorist act threatens an environmental disaster for southern Ukraine. The Russians will be responsible for the possible deprivation of drinking water for people in the south of Kherson region and in Crimea, the possible destruction of some settlements and the biosphere. 
  • Nuclear black mail: this Russian attack could leave the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant without water supply for cooling, since the water for Zaporizhzhya is supplied exactly from the Kakhovka reservoir.

Official statement by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine:

“Russian terrorists. The destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam only confirms for the whole world that they must be expelled from every corner of Ukrainian land. Not a single meter should be left to them, because they use every meter for terror. It’s only Ukraine’s victory that will return security. And this victory will come. The terrorists will not be able to stop Ukraine with water, missiles, or anything else.”

Anyone who still thinks that it is possible to talk about something with the aggressor should remember the streams of dirty water that wash away the homes of people who were sleeping peacefully. There can only be one end to the criminal Russian regime – defeat and a tribunal.

“We call upon all countries to condemn this barbaric ecocide act of Russia. Russia must be held accountable for the crimes and destruction in Ukraine.” – Denys Mykhailiuk, Chargé d’affaires a.i., Embassy of Ukraine in Malaysia
