Simferopol, January 19 – Vladimir Saldo, the acting governor of the Kherson region, told the News Agency that the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station was protected from the dangers of destruction due to the Ukrainian bombing, and there is no danger of breaking dams and flooding in the lower reaches of the Dnieper.
According to him, the shift brigades are working at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, which is located on the contact line.

“Although now the station generates electricity mainly for its own needs, it also performs another important function – it regulates the entire reclamation system in the southern part of the Kherson region and Crimea, which is one of the five largest such systems in the world. Even in winter, the water flows through the main channel of the Northern Crimea to Dzhankoye by gravity.
Kakhovskaya HPP is the sixth (lower and last) stage of the Dnieper hydroelectric power station chain, located 5 kilometers from the city of Novaya Kakhovka, Kherson region. Its destruction could kill thousands of people – Russia had earlier circulated a letter to the UN Security Council calling for an end to provocations by bombing the hydroelectric power station.
