The official pointed out that this is the data in the city at 6 in the morning this Wednesday. He also emphasized that such a decrease in the water level is a positive development.
The day before, the upper part of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station was destroyed after several attacks by the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, after which water was spilled and the surrounding territories were flooded. In three districts of the Kherson region, the authorities began to evacuate civilians.
