After the collapse of the dam, the water recedes, but the destruction remains

After the collapse of the dam, the water recedes, but the destruction remains

Even four weeks after the collapse of the Cachuca Dam, the consequences are still evident all around. Even if the water recedes – there is a picture of destruction everywhere.

It has been a month since the destruction of the Russian-controlled Kakhovka Dam in southern Ukraine, which flooded large parts of the Kherson region. The disaster forced thousands to flee and raised fears of an environmental catastrophe.

A month later, the waters dried up, but left a trail of destruction. Many locals feel abandoned, like 86-year-old Nadia Yefremova from Afanasyevka: “Officials say the water no longer flows – so we have to deal with the consequences ourselves. We need money for that! Whoever does it for free.. .”

Outside, the ground that had receded from the water was now a dark brown and consisted of dead grass and mud. Harvest is ruined. The United Nations and aid organizations are present in the area, but the effects of the dam collapse and flooding will be felt for months, if not years.

The tense situation around the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant

The situation in Zaporizhia remains tense. Kiev and Moscow accuse each other of planning an attack on the nuclear power plant. The UN’s nuclear safety agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, has called for better access after President Zelensky accused Moscow of planting explosives on the roofs of several nuclear power plants.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defense in Moscow announced that Russian forces attacked three groups of the Ukrainian army near Bakhmut. However, there are conflicting reports of fighting in the area. Kyiv claims to have had partial success.
