For the third day, the Russian occupiers have been dumping water downstream of the Dnieper from the Kakhovsky Reservoir.

This was stated by Volodymyr Leontiev, the Gauleiter of Nova Kakhovka, Kherson Oblast, transmits BBC.

According to him, this is done in order to reduce the scale of damages in the event of the destruction of the dam at the Kakhovskaya HPP. BBC sources have confirmed that water has been released from the reservoir for the third day.

Currently, the hydroelectric power plant continues to operate, while three units are out of order.

«The hydroelectric power plant continues to operate, although three units are out of order. She has not stopped work for a single day since February 24. In the last week, the discharge of water has been increased so that in the event of a negative development, the amount of water gushing downstream would be less“, said the Gauleiter.

We will remind you that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed that the occupiers mined the dam and units of the Kakhovskaya HPP, which is one of the largest energy facilities in Ukraine. According to the Institute for the Study of War, the Russians may use the attack on the Kakhovskaya HPP to cover their retreat from Kherson.

Ukrainian intelligence officers claim that the Russian occupiers mined the Kakhovskaya HPP back in April, and this week they conducted additional mining of locks and supports.
