From the Kakhovka reservoir, as of Saturday morning, more than a third of the water was lost, the Ukrainian company Ukrhydroenergo reports in its Telegram channel.
“As of the morning of June 10, the level of the Kakhovka reservoir in the Nikopol area is 10.55 meters, which is almost 1.2 meters lower than the previous day,” the report says.
It is also reported that hydroelectric power plants are operating 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 administration, Alexander Prokudin, appointed by Kiev, said that at present the average level of flooding in the region is 4.72 meters. According to him, since yesterday evening the water has receded by 31 centimeters. Prokudin said that since the beginning of the accident at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, the water level has dropped by 6.25 meters there.
Recall that the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station collapsed on June 6. A number of cities and towns were almost completely flooded. An emergency regime has been introduced in the Kherson region.
Moscow and Kyiv accuse each other of breaking the hydroelectric dam. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a case on the terrorist act, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine – under articles on ecocide.
