Canada will send over $36 mln to help flooded regions of Ukraine

Canada will send Canadian $47.5 million (over $36 million) to help residents of Ukrainian regions flooded because of Russia's destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant and dam.

The office of the Prime Minister of Canada announced this, Ukrinform reports.

"The destruction of the dam in Nova Kakhovka once again demonstrates the incredible price civilians are paying for the Russian invasion. Canada is providing an additional $10 million for the immediate response to this disaster and is redirecting $37.5 million of the money previously allocated to Ukraine to support organizations that help residents of the flooded regions," says the widespread press release.

Canada is also "determined to provide additional resources for post-flood reconstruction," it said.


As Rubryka reported, on the night of June 6, Russian invaders blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, located a few kilometers from the temporarily occupied city of Nova Kakhovka, Ukraine's southern Kherson region.

We will remind you that three people have already died due to flooding in the temporarily occupied Oleshky on the left bank of the Kherson region.

The death of nine people due to flooding was confirmed in the occupied city of Oleshky.

One person also died in the Mykolaiv region due to flooding after the Kakhovska hydroelectric power station explosion.

The Rubryka correspondent also reported that the Russians were shooting at people trying to evacuate in the flooded left-bank Kherson region.

Earlier, the Head of the Ukrhydroenergo State water company, Ihor Syrota, reported that the water level in the Kakhovka reservoir fell below the "dead point." This means it is currently impossible to draw water to the Russia-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant to cool it.

In the southern Odesa region, Ukrainian border guards record the consequences of the Russian ecocide due to the Russian army's detonation of the Kakhovka hydroelectric plant.
