As a result of the Russian explosion of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, on Tuesday, June 20, 21 people died.
New satellite images of the Kakhovka Reservoir, produced by the War Mapper monitoring group, show it to be almost empty. The corresponding photos on Tuesday, June 20, were published by WM at Twitter.
The photo clearly shows the difference between what the reservoir was before June 6, and what it was after the Russian terrorist attack.
“Only the Dnieper River itself, some tributaries and some small lakes in the area remained,” the statement said.
You will also notice how much the area around the reservoir changes after dumping and meeting the water.
New satellite imagery confirms that, indeed, the Kakhovka Reservoir no longer exists.

It should be noted that the agriculture of the Kherson region, as well as the Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporozhye regions, after the Russians destroyed the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, is under threat due to the lack of water for irrigation. According to analysts, this is 2-3% of the lands of Ukraine. This will affect the yield, GDP and inflation, experts say.
Remember what the Kakhovka reservoir looks like, it was published on June 16.
After the explosion of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, the Russians blocked the rescue of the civilian population from flooding, and also passed the Ukrainian side evacuation personnel as their “job”.
