Russian forces have reportedly started mining the sluice gates and supports of the dam at Nova Kakhovka on the river Dnipro, according to Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, a division of the Defense Ministry. Its claims come in response to President Volodymyr Zelensky's comments, in which he asserted that Russian forces are allegedly mining a significant Dnipro dam in the southern Kherson region, as well as the nearby hydroelectric plant. In a video speech to the Council of Europe, Zelensky stated, "We have information that Russian terrorists have mined the dam and units of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant. Ukraine defense officials confirm Zelensky's claim that Russia mines the Dnipro dam Defense Intelligence claimed that "Russians are preparing a succession of terrorist strikes on this land" because they "foresee a speedy liberation of the west bank sector of Kherson region by the Ukrainian Defense Forces." Particularly vulnerable to demolition are the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant's facilities and dams for the reservoir. It said that "two military tented Kamaz trucks without drivers were positioned atop the dam," adding that "the sluices and supports of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant were additionally mined" during the current week. Boxes of explosives are fully loaded into both cars. Ukraine defense officials confirm Zelensky's claim that Russia mines the Dnipro dam Officials in Kherson who were nominated by Russia have called the allegations "nonsense." About 18 million cubic meters of water are stored in the reservoir below the dam, which provides water for cooling the reactors at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station. Regarding Zelensky's remarks: Zelensky asserted that Russia was laying the groundwork for a major disaster in the south of Ukraine. "More than 80 villages, including Kherson, will be in the area of fast flooding if Russian terrorists blow up this dam. There could be hundreds of thousands of victims. A significant portion of southern Ukraine's water supply might be damaged. Since water for ZNPP is collected from the Kakhovka reservoir, this Russian terrorist strike could prevent the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant from having water for cooling, he said.
