Surveillance footage shows the moment a huge explosion occurs at Nova Kakhovka, the dam in the Kherson region. A road and railway run across the dam. When the explosion occurred is unclear.
It was Russian media that released the film on Saturday. During Friday, the American company Maxar stated that their satellite images, after the Russian withdrawal from the city of Kherson, showed that the dam has extensive damage.
Both the Russian and Ukrainian sides have repeatedly accused each other of planning to destroy the dam with explosives. Something that could cause great devastation like floods.
