Ukraine Dam Collapse Wreaks Havoc Along Dnipro River as Thousands Forced to Evacuate

HeadlineJun 07, 2023

Evacuations continue in southern Ukraine as some 42,000 people are at risk of flooding along the Dnipro River after the Nova Kakhovka dam collapsed on Tuesday. Russia and Ukraine have traded blame for its destruction. The U.N. has warned of “grave and far-reaching” humanitarian consequences. This is a resident affected by the flooding.

Oleksandr Reva: “The situation is literally critical. If the water rises another meter, we will lose our house. We are moving our stuff to neighbors now who live on higher ground. … The Russians want to destroy a Ukrainian nation and Ukraine itself, and they don’t care by what means, because nothing is sacred for them.”
