Kherson’s huge Nova Kakhovka dam has been damaged in the shelling of the Ukrainian army and water has started leaking from it. This information has been given by Russian media. At present, this dam is in the possession of the Russian army and it is supplying water to the Russian-occupied Crimea. The Kherson province had been occupied by Russian forces since March but was recaptured by Ukrainian forces in September. At present, the Ukrainian army has recaptured most of the countryside except for the city of Kherson. By the way, Russia had announced the inclusion of this province in October itself.
Dam damaged in rocket attack
According to Russia’s state news agency Tass, the dam was damaged in a rocket attack by the Ukrainian army. Water has started leaking from the dam. Emergency services have been activated to prevent damage. The agency has not given any picture or other information related to the information. The 30-metre-high Nova Kakhovka Dam on the upstream of the Dnipro River supplies electricity to many cities in Ukraine. It is also a major source of water supply in the area. If there is less water in it, then there will be a big problem of electricity and water for Ukraine.
Russia evacuated the city of Kherson
Since October, both Russia and Ukraine have been accusing each other of conspiring to damage the dam. This could cause heavy damage to the Russian-occupied city of Kherson and its surrounding areas. Due to this apprehension, Russia has also evacuated the city of Kherson and many areas. On Friday night, the Russian army imposed a curfew in Kherson.
The world did not come under the threat of Russia, the crisis averted: Zelenskyy
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that Russian threats to break the food deal did not work because of global solidarity and that it had to withdraw from the deal. The world did not come under the blackmailing of Russia regarding the agreement and due to this the world was saved from being a victim of food crisis. Zelensky said that 28 ships carrying food grains left for different countries last week. Among them, a cargo ship has also gone to Ethiopia carrying 30,000 tonnes of wheat under the United Nations Food Program.
