In 2023, Ukraine paid more than UAH 200 million in financial assistance to those affected by flooding caused by the Russian terror attack that destroyed the Kakhovka HPP

Ukraine's Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories reported this.

Last year, over 23,000 residents of Kherson and Mykolaiv regions received financial support from the state in the amount of UAH 5,000 (about USD 130 - ed.) per person, totaling more than UAH 115 million.

In addition, international organizations provided assistance to the affected residents of these regions, totaling over UAH 88 million. In particular, almost 13,400 residents of Mykolaiv and Kherson regions received UAH 6,600 each.

The Ministry of Reintegration emphasized that this financial assistance was paid to people who, at the time of the hydroelectric power plant explosion, lived (were registered/declared) in the flooded settlements of Mykolaiv and Kherson regions.

Explosion at Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant dam

The Kakhovka HPP has been occupied by Russian forces since February 24 last year.

On October 20, 2022, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that Russia was preparing to stage a new large-scale terrorist attack - to blow up the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant in the Kherson region. At the same time, he listed other consequences of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant explosion. Later, the head of the Kherson City Military Administration, Halyna Luhova, addressed residents in connection with Russia's preparation of a terrorist attack on the Kakhovka HPP. She published an algorithm of actions to be taken in the event of a dam blowing up.

On June 6, invading Russian troops blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, completely destroying it. As a result of the tragedy, settlements in the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions were flooded. For a detailed coverage of the events click here.

The United States is carefully studying the evidence in the case of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant explosion.

The explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam caused almost USD 14 billion in damages to Ukraine.
