As reported, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has attacked Ukrhydroenergo facilities more than 50 times. In addition, on the night of June 6, Russians blew up the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, causing flooding in Kherson region and depriving a number of southern regions of Ukraine of a source of fresh water.
