The microdistrict of Ostriv is shelled daily, but now another danger has appeared – the water element.
On Tuesday, June 6, the occupiers fired artillery at the Ostriv neighborhood of Kherson during evacuation due to flooding. Two law enforcement officers who helped residents leave the dangerous area were injured.
About this informs Oleksandr Prokudin, head of Kherson OVA.
Despite the shelling, about 1,300 local residents were evacuated.
“The island. This micro-district of Kherson is under daily shelling by the Russian occupiers. Due to the explosion of the Kakhovskaya HPP dam, another danger has been added – the water element. During the day, the island is rapidly going under water. The flooding is so colossal that in some places it is no longer possible to leave there by motor vehicle,” the message says .
Even in such a difficult time, the Russians decided to attack the city.
We will remind you that the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, addressed the world against the backdrop of the explosion of the Kakhovskaya HPP. He emphasized that such ecocide could not have happened because of shelling.
