“We assess the actions of the Ministry of Emergency Situations as disinterested. The president is keeping the situation under control,” Peskov told reporters.
According to a Kremlin spokesman, all the work is carried out under shelling by the Ukrainian armed forces. “These attacks do not stop, there are deaths, there was even a pregnant woman,” he added.
Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the flash flood was caused by sabotage on the Ukrainian side, which undermined the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.
Earlier, the upper part of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station was destroyed after several attacks by Ukrainian militants. After that, the flow of water began. In three districts of the Kherson region, the process of evacuation of civilians began.
