A street in the city of Kherson flooded after the Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam was damaged, on June 6, 2023.
Russia again strongly denied attacking the Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam that led to widespread destruction in southern Ukraine, as it came under scrutiny following the major incident.
Ukraine and Russia traded accusations on Tuesday as a massive volume of water breached the dam in the partially Russian-occupied region of Kherson, causing widespread flooding downstream.
Both sides denied involvement in attacking the dam, with both accusing each other of blowing it up.
For example, they noted that Russian-occupied Crimea relies on water supplies from the reservoir and the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant also relies on supplies for cooling.
