The city of Kryvyi Rih, in central Ukraine, is at risk of flooding after a Russian strike damaged water infrastructure and caused a river to overflow, the Ukrainian presidency announced on Wednesday.
“At the point of impact, we observe a water flow of 100 cubic meters per second, which represents a large volume. The water level in the Ingulets (river) changes hour by hour,” said Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Administration Kirill Tymoshenko.
According to him, the center and another district of this city of 600,000 inhabitants are “threatened by floods”.
“It is a challenge for all of us, but the situation is under control. All agencies are making efforts to eliminate the threat as soon as possible,” he added on Telegram.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who hails from Kriviy Rih, had previously announced a Russian strike there targeting “hydraulic infrastructure”, which caused no casualties. It was an “attempt to flood the Creevy Rich”, according to him.
The governor of the region, Valentin Reznichenko, spoke for his part about seven Russian Kh-22 missiles that were launched from a plane and “caused serious damage” to these infrastructures.
