Zelensky publishes photos of flooded Kherson region: Russians not rescuing people in occupied territory

In the temporarily occupied areas of Kherson region, Russian invaders do not even try to help people who suffered from the blast of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant (HPP).

President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote this on Telegram and published photos of flooded Kherson region.

“Russian terrorists have once again proved that they are a threat to everything living. The destruction of one of the largest water reservoirs in Ukraine is absolutely deliberate. At least 100 thousand people lived in these areas before the Russian invasion. At least tens of thousands are still there,” Zelensky noted.

According to him, hundreds of thousands of people have been left without normal access to drinking water. “Our services, all those who can help people, are already involved. But we can only help on the territory controlled by Ukraine. On the part occupied by Russia, the occupiers are not even trying to help people,” the President said.

“This once again demonstrates the cynicism with which Russia treats the people whose land it has captured and what Russia really brings to Europe and the world,” Zelensky stressed.

As Ukrinform reported, on the night of June 6, the Russian forces blew up the dam of the Kakhovka HPP. The Kakhovka HPP can be restored. Evacuation of people from flooded areas continues.
