The Kakhovka Reservoir will cease to exist in two to three days due to receding water levels resulting from the blowing up of the dam at the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) by Ukrainian forces, Vladimir Rogov, chairman of the We Are Together With Russia movement, told TASS
"According to experts’ estimates, today the maximum water level is expected at the Kakhovka Reservoir. From June 10, everything should subside. By June 20, as the water flows into the Black Sea, the Dnieper will naturally form a new riverbed, but one without the Kakhovka Reservoir. It will simply disappear; it will take two or three days for the reservoir to disappear. There will just be the Dnieper River above the Kakhovka HPP," Rogov said.
He pointed out that the new riverbed will be far removed from the city of Energodar and the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant.
Rogov also noted that Ukraine has increased the discharge of water into the Kakhovka Reservoir from the Dnieper HPP located upstream. "In the city of Zaporozhye at the moment the water has gone 30 meters from the shore. The maximum expected water level in the Dnieper River there should reach 7.5 meters," he said.
