According to the interim governor of Kherson, Vladimir Saldo, at least 77 wounded have been transferred to hospitals and 1,500 people have been transferred to temporary shelters.

Offering the most recent assessment of the situation in the region due to the flooding caused by the destruction of the Kajovka hydroelectric power station, Vladimir Saldo pointed out that the work of pumping water, cleaning streets and restoring power lines are still ongoing.

The governor announced that according to specialists, the section of the Dnieper river downstream of the Kajovka hydroelectric plant will return to its normal course on June 16.

Russia accused Ukraine of launching a missile attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station on June 6, causing an uncontrolled release of water, which has killed at least eight people and affected 35 settlements and areas in Russia's Kherson region.

The destruction of the dam caused severe damage to the environment, leveling farmland along the Dnieper and increasing the risk of the North Crimean Canal drying up.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the attack on the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station a deliberate act of sabotage by Ukraine and said the Kiev regime should be held responsible for the consequences.
