Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin, having given the order to blow up the Kakhovka hydroelectric station, literally "spit" on Crimea.

This was told to Channel 24 by a Russian politician in Washington, Andrei Piontkovsky.

Piontkovsky expressed the opinion that such a desperate step as blowing up the Kakhovka hydroelectric station on Putin's orders indicates that the Russian leader realized his insignificance in trying to keep Crimea.

"The decision to blow up the hydroelectric power station was made without taking into account the interests of Crimeans. In no case has he abandoned Crimea yet, because it is to recognize that Crimea was lost by Russia, that is, to commit political suicide," Andriy Piontkovsky said.

At the same time, the blowing up of the Kakhovka HPP, according to the expert, will not have as effective impact on the situation in the Crimea as the destruction of the Crimean bridge.

"This will lead to the destabilization of the entire Russian military machine in Crimea when they begin to flee from there," Piontkovsky said.

Recall that due to the blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric station by the Russians, Oleshky, temporarily captured by the invaders, were 90% under water. Mayor Yevhen Ryshchuk said that due to the terrorist attack of the enemy and the lack of evacuation, people died.

Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian servicemen rescued a family with two children from the occupied Oleshok in the Kherson region. They were delivered water using a drone Now the mother and her two children are in Kherson.
