After the detonation, the water washed away the enemy’s first line of defense on the left bank, Bratchuk said.
After the explosion of Kakhovskaya HPP, Odesa beaches became deadly dangerous, in particular due to the great threat of mines and explosive objects.
This was announced by Serhii Bratchuk, the head of the Civic Council at Odesa OVA, on the air of the telethon.
“Literally immediately, the head of the regional military administration, Oleg Kiper, appealed to Odessans and residents of the Odesa region not to go to the coast. There is a huge threat that mine-explosive objects will hit us. The great Dnieper water is real washed away the first line of enemy defense on the left bank. There were a lot of mined areas. All these mines went here. Just a few hours after the tragedy, one of the mines was destroyed by our Defense Forces. There was a controlled detonation, it was an anti-landing mine that was thrown ashore,” he said.
According to Bratchuk, the further scenario of the development of events assumes that such mines could end up on any beach and on any part of the coast.
“We are also talking about ammunition, for example, shots from a grenade launcher or grenades. Therefore, there is no need to go to the sea. This is simply prohibited – this is an effective order from last year of the regional military administration and military command,” the OVA reminded.
The situation is complicated with regard to the garbage that has flowed into the Black Sea. Bratchuk thanked the people of Odessa for the initiative to join his congregation, but he stressed that they should not take such actions because of the great threat to their own lives.
“I want to remind you that today there is a great danger from explosive objects that may end up among the garbage. Therefore first, the military will deal with mine danger, then the utility workers will join in the big cleanup. Appropriate equipment at sea will also be used. If ammunition is found in the sea, they will simply be destroyed. For now, we ask people not to go out, not to take these actions, although we are very grateful for such an initiative,” he concluded.
We will remind you that the consequences of ecocide are recorded in Odesa. Garbage, animal corpses and dangerous ammunition are floating in the Black Sea. As the mayor of Odesa, Trukhanov, said, the mines, which are carried by the current to the beaches, will be destroyed immediately in the city. Their transportation to the landfill is not possible.
