President Zelensky Accuses Russia Of Plot To Blow Up Dam

Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, has accused Russia of preparing to blow up a dam at a hydroelectric plant in southern Ukraine, which would lead to a “large-scale disaster”.

According to Ukrainian information in his overnight address President Zelensky said the Kakhovka dam on the Dnieper River had been mined by Russian forces.

The dam is under Russian occupation, but Ukrainian forces are closing in.

Russia has already accused Ukraine of firing missiles at the Kakhovka dam.

The dam also provides Russia with one of the few remaining routes across the Dnieper river in the partially occupied Kherson region.
