Three people have died due to flooding in the temporarily occupied town of Oleshky in Kherson Oblast after the Russians blew up the Kakhovka HPP.

Yevhen Ryshchuk, the mayor of Oleshky, reports this.

Unfortunately, there are first reports about casualties caused by the flooding, 

Later, Ryshchuk specified to Suspline that three people had died. In the evening, the Russian troops started evacuating people from the roofs of their houses.

The mayor also reported that 90% of the town had been flooded, and in some areas, the water level reaches three meters.

Tetiana Hasanenko, head of the Oleshky Military Administration, reported that, for now, it is impossible to evacuate by one's own means as the occupiers do not allow it. Instead, they only suggest people evacuate to the Krasnodar region in Russia.
