The Korsun Convent, founded in the 18th century, is completely submerged. Two palaces of the 19th century and a house located on the territory of the Novaya Kakhovka urban district were also flooded.
At the same time, after Ukrainian troops launched a series of attacks on the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station on the night of June 6, and the upper part of the power station was destroyed, unregulated water discharge began and continues. The evacuation of civilians from three districts began: Novokakhovsky, Golopristansky and Aleshkinsky.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the kyiv regime blew up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric plant. Russia’s Investigative Committee opened a criminal case over the attack.
