In Ukraine, the humanitarian situation has deteriorated greatly. Due to the breakthrough of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, 700,000 people need drinking water, Martin Griffiths, deputy secretary general of the organization, said, writes Associated Press.

According to him, the water flooded the areas where land mines were placed. “Soon we will definitely see mines that float in places where people do not expect them, representing a danger to adults and especially children. This is just the beginning of understanding the consequences of this act, ”Griffiths said.

He added that Ukraine is threatened with a sharp drop in agricultural exports, as well as an increase in global food prices and a reduction in food volumes in the world.

Griffiths noted that the UN provided assistance to 30,000 people in the flooded area controlled by Ukraine.

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. Experts warn of catastrophic consequences, including environmental pollution. According to experts, water can not only bring mines, but also wash dangerous pollution from cemeteries, cesspools and manure storages.
