The Ukrainian military fired missiles at a hydroelectric power station in Novaya Kakhovka in the Kherson region, which is now controlled by Russian troops participating in a special military operation. The Kherson military-civilian administration notes that there are victims.
“In the morning, a blow was struck at the hydroelectric power station (by Ukrainian troops). There are victims, we are clarifying,” said Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the Kherson military-civilian administration.
At the same time, the head of the military-civilian administration (MAC) of the Kakhovka district, Vladimir Leontiev, told TASS about the continuation of the work of the hydroelectric power station.
