Ukraine "congratulated" the United Nations with the Day of the Russian Language, featuring a photo of the flooded General Assembly Hall
Ukraine has creatively congratulated the United Nations on Russian Language Day.
It is indicated by a post on Ukraine's official Twitter account.
Interestingly, Ukraine used an illustration of the UN General Assembly hall flooded with water for its "greeting."
On the morning of June 6, following reports of the Russian-engineered explosion at the occupied Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station, the UN published a post about "Russian Language Day."
Around 2:00 PM, the official UN page featured a post stating that civilian populations and infrastructure should not be military targets, but it made no mention of Russian aggression.
"Civilian populations and civilian infrastructure cannot be targets. They must be protected. At all times. Everywhere."
Currently, the United Nations has not been able to attribute responsibility for the attack on the Kakhovska hydroelectric power station. Instead, abstract statements about the impact of the war on people are being published.
According to the Main Intelligence Directorate, the occupiers remotely detonated the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station during the night of June 6.
Uncontrolled water discharge from the Kakhovka Reservoir has begun. According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, approximately 80 settlements are at risk of flooding, putting around 22,000 residents in danger.
The dam has been completely destroyed and is not subject to restoration, according to "Ukrhydroenergo." The dam is located upstream of the Dnieper River, near the mouth of the North Crimean Canal. Its destruction will affect the water supply to Crimea.
Moreover, the decrease in the water level in the Dnieper River due to the breach of the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station dam poses a threat to the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant, as reported by "Energoatom." Currently, the situation is under control, and the level in the cooling pond is sufficient.
At the same time, the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, stated that the destruction of the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station dam has led to a significant decrease in the water level in the reservoir for cooling at the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Ukraine will initiate a meeting of the UN Security Council regarding the destruction of the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station dam.
Russian authorities deny allegations of sabotaging the dam and place full responsibility on the Ukrainian government. The Kremlin refers to the destruction of the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station as a deliberate act of sabotage by Kyiv.
It is worth noting that a week before the explosion at the Kakhovska Hydroelectric Power Station, the Russian government authorized the non-investigation of accidents at hazardous facilities. According to the document, no accidents due to "military actions" and acts of terrorism, including those in occupied territories, will be investigated until January 1, 2028.
