Retaliation of Ukraine: Kakhovka Dam Destruction Creating a New Humanitarian Disaster

Kyiv’s Long-Planned Retribution Against Russia Unleashed as Dam Blown Up In a shocking turn of events, Ukraine has taken a bold step in its long-planned retaliation against Russia. The nation’s capital, Kyiv, has remained silent about its intentions until now, but recent events indicate a significant shift in the conflict dynamics.

On Tuesday, Ukraine claimed that Russia had blown up a crucial dam on the Dnipro River, endangering local communities and even the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant. This destruction may very well mark the initiation of Ukraine’s strategic move against its adversary.

The Battle Begins:

Sunday witnessed a surge in fighting across various locations along the front lines, most notably in the east, where experts had predicted Ukraine’s counteroffensive to commence.

Military analysts agree that Kyiv’s troops will aim to push southward, ultimately securing a land connection between Crimea and mainland Russia. This ambitious plan emphasizes Ukraine’s determination to sever any ties that bind the disputed region to its aggressive neighbor.

The Dam Disaster:

According to Ukrainian sources, the Russian military executed a calculated operation on Tuesday morning, targeting a massive dam on the Dnipro River. As a result, a destructive torrent of water surged downstream, posing a grave threat to densely populated areas and the vital Zaporizhia nuclear power station, which relies on the river’s reservoir for cooling purposes.


While a Russian-appointed official initially blamed Ukrainian shelling for the incident, the true culprits behind the dam’s destruction remain unknown. The aftermath of the dam’s collapse has been swift and devastating.

Ukrainian officials confirm that flooding has already begun, prompting the Interior Ministry to order the evacuation of citizens from ten municipalities, including the central city of Kherson.

President Volodymyr Zelensky wasted no time convening an emergency council meeting to address the unfolding crisis. Zelensky unequivocally condemned the dam’s destruction as a terrorist attack and used it as a catalyst to call for Russia’s complete expulsion from all Ukrainian territory.

Immediate Consequences:

President Zelensky has long been aware of Russia’s plans to orchestrate a “false flag” operation involving the destruction of a hydroelectric dam in Ukraine’s south. His warnings last year about the impending humanitarian and ecological disaster were unfortunately prescient.

In response to this aggression, Zelensky emphasized that only Ukraine’s victory would restore proper security. Undeterred by any obstacle, he declared that neither water nor missiles could halt Ukraine’s unwavering fight against terrorists.

Escalation of Conflict:

In a series of escalating events, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that Ukrainian forces launched a major offensive in the Donetsk region on Monday.

While Moscow asserted that the attacks were successfully repelled, the toll of heavy casualties on both sides is brutal to verify independently. As villages downstream of the dam grappled with the immediate effects of flooding, evacuation efforts were initiated, and the National Security Council convened to assess the situation.

Uncertainty Surrounds the Culprit:

The responsible party behind the dam’s destruction remains uncertain. A local authority appointed by Russia hastily blamed overnight Ukrainian bombardment, while Ukrainian officials firmly point the finger at Russian forces.

It is clear, however, that the safety of this crucial dam, the second largest of six along the Dnipro River, has long been a contentious issue between the two sides. Previous allegations reached a fever pitch last November, just before Ukrainian forces successfully recaptured Kherson from Russian occupation, located 40 miles downstream from the dam.


As Ukraine’s long-awaited retaliation unfolds, the attack on the dam devastates the fighting but the water from the Dam will add to the destruction.
