Both Russians and Ukrainians fear that as the days go by and the water level drops, the number of deaths will increase.
Four dead, thirteen missing, more than 2,400 evacuees and a single culprit: the Kremlin.
That is the provisional balance made by Ukraine of the rupture, last Tuesday, of the New Kakhovka hydroelectric dam. Rescue work continues in Kherson and Nikolaev, where dozens of towns are under water.
The War Institute affirms that the seismic data confirm that yes there was an explosion just before the dam burst. kyiv, for its part, has made public the recording of an alleged conversation between the Russian military that would confirm its authorship.
Moscow has also made public its data on what happened: the official figure for Russia is eight deaths, although many rescue volunteers speak of dozens.
And it is that both Russians and Ukrainians are clear that as the days go by and the water level goes down, the number of fatalities goes up.
The war, meanwhile, continues, inside and outside the flooded areas, and also outside Ukraine’s borders. This Friday, a drone reached a residential building in the Russian city of Voronezhsome 300 kilometers from the border, leaving at least three people injured.
