Georgia's PM calls destruction of Kakhovka dam as result of Russian-unleased war

    WORLD  06 June 2023 - 18:06

    Irakli Garibashvilithe Prime Minister of Georgia, has called the destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant a consequence of the war unleashed by the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

    "This is a consequence of the brutal and destructive war that Russia is waging in Ukraine. This is not new. You are surprised by the explosion at the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, but today 20 per cent of the territory of Ukraine has been destroyed, with cities and villages razed to the ground," Garibashvili said, European Pravda reports with reference to Georgia Online.

    The Georgian Prime Minister believes that "the parties should sit down and discuss the end of the war".

    "I believe that everyone should make efforts to sit them down at the negotiating table and start a peaceful negotiation process. There is no alternative to this. The killing of people must be stopped, this is our position," insisted Garibashvili.

    On the morning of 6 June, Ukraine’s Operational Command Pivden (South) reported that the Russian occupation forces had blown up the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP), with the Kherson Oblast Military Administration confirming this information. The Head of the Kherson Oblast Military Administration, Oleksandr Prokudin, said the evacuation of the local population from dangerous areas had begun.

    Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called Russia’s blowing up of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant a heinous war crime and probably the biggest man-made disaster in Europe in recent decades.

    On the morning of June 6, Operational Command "South" reported that Russian forces had blown up the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant; later, the regional military administration confirmed this information. Aleksandr Prokudin, head of the Kherson OVA, reported that the evacuation of the local population from the dangerous areas had begun.

    Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called Russia's bombing of the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant a terrible war crime and probably the largest man-made disaster in Europe in decades.
