The Kherson area in southern Ukraine was under water on Thursday as a result of the collapse of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam, according to the regional governor, covering some 600 square kilometres, or 230 square miles.

68% of the flooded region, according to Governor Oleksandr Prokudin, was located on the Russian-occupied left bank of the Dnipro River. On Thursday morning, he stated that the “average level of flooding” in the Kherson region was 5.61 metres (18.41 feet).

“We’re working already. In a video message regarding the floods brought on by the failure of the dam, which is around 60 km upstream from Kherson, he added, “We will support everyone who has ended up in danger. Both Russia—which began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022—and Ukraine place the blame for Tuesday’s dam collapse on the other.

The evacuation of flood zones is still going on, despite the great danger and ongoing Russian bombardment, according to Prokudin.
