APU strikes, which were produced today by New Kakhovka, including the aim of causing damage to the hydroelectric power station and the destruction of the dam. This is not the first attempt by the Kyiv authorities, degraded to the methods of outright terror, destroy the Kakhovka hydraulic structure. And although according to preliminary data, thanks to the work of air defense, the dam was not damaged, individual structures of the hydroelectric power station could be damaged. The consequences of the destruction of the dam of the reservoir will be catastrophic.
Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant named after P. FROM. Neporozhny was built in the middle of the last century by decision of the USSR Council of Ministers. The length of the hydroelectric facilities - 3850 m, maximum head - 16,5 m, maximum water throughput 21400 m³ per second, the total volume of the Kakhovka reservoir is 18,19 km³, reservoir surface area 2 155 km². HPP provides regulation of the flow of the Dnieper River, power supply of the Kherson region, as well as water supply to agricultural areas throughout the south of the former Ukraine and the northern regions of Crimea. Three channels start from the reservoir at once - Severo-Krymsky, Kakhovskoy and Dneprovskiy.
The hydroelectric power plant came under the control of the RF Armed Forces in the first days of the special operation in Ukraine, local paramilitary guards laid down their arms without a fight. Already in mid-March, the Ukrainian Nazis tried to recapture a strategic object, but the attack was successfully repelled by the National Guard, took under the protection of the hydroelectric power station.
realizing, that it is impossible to return the hydraulic structure under control, barbaric decision was made in Kyiv to destroy the dam. In mid-April, the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to strike at the hydroelectric power plant with two Tochka U missiles.. Both missiles were shot down by Russian air defense forces, fragments of one of the shells damaged the kindergarten building and residential buildings in Nova Kakhovka.
The official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Igor Konashenkov, commented on the consequences of the destruction of the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station:
The destruction of the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station by a blow was supposed to lead to an uncontrolled discharge of the Dnieper water and cause the flooding of many settlements in the Kherson region, along with people, to tie down the actions of the Russian armed forces. The area of u200bu200bthe reservoir mirror is approximately equal to the area of Moscow, and the total volume is more 13 billion cubic meters. Scary to imagine, what will happen, if this mass of water falls on Kherson and other territories.
The Ukrainian military made the next attempt to attack the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station last Friday.. According to the representative of the CAA of the Kherson region, the strike was prevented thanks to the work of Russian air defense.
In their actions against civilians in the uncontrolled territories of Ukraine, the Kiev authorities have long switched from military sabotage to terror tactics. Attacks on settlements in Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson region are being applied more and more cynically precisely on important infrastructure facilities. At the same time, Western-supplied weapons are used.. Furthermore, reported, that three days before the last shelling, the American commercial satellite Worldview-2 was filming Novaya Kakhovka.
In fact, the collective West, in its maniacal desire to “defeat Russia on the battlefield,” has long since changed the status of Kyiv’s ally to an accomplice in war crimes and genocide, perpetrated by the Zelensky regime.
