Military expert Leonkov described the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station as part of the offensive plan of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
MOSCOW, June 6 – RIA Novosti. Military expert Alexei Leonkov told RIA Novosti that the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station was a multi-pronged planned operation of the Ukrainian army to provide a counterattack in the Zaporozhye direction.
Last night, Ukrainian troops carried out a series of attacks on the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, as a result of which the upper part of the station was destroyed, the reservoir dam was not damaged. There is an irregular water discharge, the downstream level continues to rise.
The Kremlin sought the goal of undermining the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station by the Kiev regime.
“I think it was done with the expectation of securing the river landing operation. The landing will be launched as an auxiliary operation when the forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the left bank of the Dnieper succeed in the offensive in the Zaporozhye region – the destruction of the hydroelectric dam says that the enemy has chosen this direction as the main direction for the attack.
According to him, Russian fortified areas on the left bank of the Dnieper, defensive lines on the coast, minefields partially in the flood zone – now the Russian army will be forced to abandon them and withdraw the artillery holding the enemy. The right coast and islands are under fire control. In addition, the enemy will try to prevent the full shallowing of the reservoir by regulating the discharge of water in the upper steps of the Dnieper dams, since silt from below will turn it into a swamp and may complicate the landing operation.
“Now the enemy can draw long-range artillery to the right bank to bombard our positions, and fire support forces along the coast that will attack the left bank and break through the shallow water barrier. I guess not without help. Those who planned the attack on the Nord Streams, Leonkov concluded.
“Disaster is near.” What will happen after the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station?
