Moscow, June 10 – Ukraine’s “Ukrhydroenergo” reported in its telegram channel that more than a third of the water has been lost from the Kakhovka reservoir. As of Saturday morning, hydroelectric power stations are operating at reduced capacity.
“More than a third of the water has been lost from the Kakhovka Reservoir, which has accumulated due to the spring flood. As of the morning of June 10, the level of the Kakhovka Reservoir in the Nikopol region is 10.55 meters, which is almost 1.2 meters lower than the day before.”
It should be noted that the hydroelectric power plants operate at a reduced capacity in order to reduce the consequences of the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.
In turn, the head of the Kherson regional military department, Alexander Prokudin, appointed by Kiev, said in the Telegram channel that the average flood level in the region at the moment is 4.72 meters. According to him, since yesterday evening, the water has receded by 31 centimeters. He explained that since the beginning of the accident at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, the water level has decreased by 6.25 meters there.
On the night of June 6, Ukrainian forces launched a series of attacks on the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, as a result of which the upper part of the station was destroyed, and the reservoir dam itself was not damaged. There is an unregulated drainage of water. The head of the administration of the Novokakhovka metropolitan area, Vladimir Leontiev, laid responsibility for the destruction of the Kiev hydroelectric power station. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that one of the goals of the Kiev regime’s bombing of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station was to deprive Crimea of water. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Kiev regime blew up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station in order to transfer troops to its area of offensive operations from the direction of Kherson, which weakened its positions there. According to the minister, Kiev committed a terrorist act by blowing up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, as a result of which large areas were flooded.
The Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Station is the sixth (lower and last) stage of the Dnieper chain of hydroelectric power stations, located five kilometers from the city of Novaya Kakhovka, Kherson Region, which became part of Russia on September 30, 2022 after a referendum. .
