The Russians Blew Up a Dam in the Donetsk Region

On June 11, Russian recidivists destroyed the dam on the Mokri Yalar river and flooded the settlements on both banks of the water flow

It is obvious that the drowning of settlements due to dam explosions is not a mistake or engineering miscalculations of Russian terrorists but a planned tactic. In order to slow down (there is no question of stopping) the Ukrainian counteroffensive, the Russian army methodically destroyed 4 dams and drowned everything around with waters from the released reservoirs.

"First, the occupiers blew up the Karliv reservoir, then the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, then they blew up other hydraulic structures in the occupied part of the Zaporizhzhia region. In the Zaporizhzhia region, they expected a breakthrough of the Defense Forces, so in order to slow down our advance, they resorted to this tactic when they again blew up the hydraulic structure on the Mokri Yela river. But this does not affect the advancement of the Defense Forces," said Valery Shershen, spokesman for the Defense Forces of the Tavrya route of Ukraine.

Just a few days after blowing up the Kakhovka dam, the Russians destroyed the dam on the Mokri Yala in the Donetsk region. However, this crime by the Russians did not bring the desired results and did not affect the advancement of the Ukrainian counteroffensive. Although it caused damage to the ecosystem of Ukraine and the lives of Ukrainians. Moreover, despite the flooding, the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Tavria direction freed 3 settlements from Russian occupation.
