According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a large number of citizens in Ukraine are currently facing difficulty in accessing clean drinking water due to the destruction of the Kakhovka dam. The situation has affected hundreds of thousands of people in the region.

According to him, there are still many people in southern Ukraine who are facing the problem of flooding. He blamed Russia for not providing any assistance to those who are stranded in the areas controlled by them.

Concerns exist that the levels of water may increase more.

On Tuesday, both Ukraine and Russia alleged that the dam was destroyed by the other party. However, the BBC cannot confirm the validity of these allegations.

According to a statement from the Kremlin, during a phone conversation, Russian President Vladimir Putin informed Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the breach was considered a "barbaric act."

According to Mr. Zelensky, he has communicated with President Erdogan and highlighted the negative impacts on both the environment and human lives caused by the disaster.

On Wednesday, a large number of people were being evacuated from Ukraine’s Kherson region due to ongoing unrest, while satellite images revealed that the area had suffered significant damage

A picture was taken of an industrial area and port in the regional center Kherson, which is currently under the control of Ukraine, and it appears to be flooded.

The officials in Ukraine have stated that the water levels are anticipated to reach their highest point by the conclusion of Wednesday.

According to the United Nations, the damage caused by the dam would have severe and significant effects. Martin Griffiths, the UN aid chief, stated that it will take some time to determine the extent of the disaster.

Mr. Zelensky announced on his Telegram channel that a large number of individuals are currently facing inadequate access to clean drinking water.

The speaker stated that they can only provide assistance within the boundaries controlled by Ukraine. Unfortunately, the individuals occupying the area controlled by Russia are not making any efforts to aid the people in need.

Ukraine and Russia have both confirmed that they have successfully removed over 1,000 individuals from the affected area.

According to Ukrainian authorities, a total of 40,000 people need to evacuate from the conflict zone. Of these, 17,000 are in the western part of the territory held by Ukraine, while 25,000 are in the eastern part under Russian occupation.

According to Ukrainian TV, as of Wednesday morning, there were still 23 communities that were experiencing

According to certain accounts, the town of Nova Kakhovka, which is situated near the dam, could be experiencing a decrease in water levels as the large reservoir behind it is being drained.

According to the governor of Kherson, Oleksandr Prokudin, Russian military has launched attacks on different areas of the region, including the city of Kherson, on multiple occasions. As a result, one individual has been killed and another has been injured.

The mayor of Nova Kakhovka, who was appointed by the Russian government, Vladimir Leontyev, reported that the village of Korsunka has been submerged in water and three other villages have experienced flooding up to the rooftops.

The Kakhovka reservoir is a large body of water that serves multiple purposes. It supplies water to both farmers and residents in the area, as well as to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Additionally, it plays a crucial role in transporting water to the occupied region of Crimea in Russia.

The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, which is the biggest in Europe, is causing worries because it utilizes reservoir water to regulate its temperature.

As per the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the condition at the plant is being handled and there is currently no danger to the nuclear safety of the area.

Another issue that is causing worry is the erosion of agricultural land due to water runoff

According to the agriculture ministry of Ukraine, a total of 10,000 hectares of farmland located on the side of the Dnipro river under Ukrainian control have been submerged, while the amount of flooded farmland on the side occupied by others is several times greater.

Viktoriia Yeremenko, a 57-year-old resident of Kherson, had to leave her house in February as it was destroyed. She then shifted to her son’s apartment, but now it is flooded and causing even more trouble.

She informed the BBC that she is uncertain about her course of action and will wait to see how things unfold.

The Kremlin-appointed officials in the small town of Oleshky reported that there was flooding in the area. According to the residents, some houses are almost submerged in water, and some elderly people are stranded on their roofs, waiting to be rescued.

Valery Melnik, who is 53 years old, made a statement that the authorities are not taking any

According to Reuters, he stated that they would wait for the water to recede and then proceed to dry out the area.

The cause of the breach is still unknown, but Ukraine’s military intelligence has put forward the claim that Russia intentionally caused the dam to explode in order to stop a potential counter-attack by Ukraine.

According to Russia, the recent attack on a dam was carried out by Ukraine in order to divert attention from their own failures in their counter-offensive efforts. Russia also alleges that Ukraine’s motive was to cut off the supply of fresh water to Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014 and is located in the southern region of Ukraine
