Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of detonating a large dam containing a hydroelectric power station in southern Ukraine’s Kherson region, which is under control of Russian forces.

Zelensky said that if the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant were to be destroyed, it would lead to a “mass catastrophe”.

In a letter to European leaders, he warned that hundreds of thousands of people living around the Dnipro River are at risk of serious flooding if the dam is destroyed.

He also said 80 towns and cities could be flooded, leaving the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, without cooling water.
