The Plan To Blow-Up The Kakhova Dam
By Ukraine (with the support of the United States)
A day after Ukraine's much-heralded counter-offensive appears to have failed, almost before it had even begun, a major dam in the Russian-occupied region of Kherson is suddenly bombed, prompting mass evacuations as floods spread across the region.
Both sides accuse each other of the attack that puts tens of thousands of homes at risk and might even threaten the safety of Europe's largest nuclear power plant.
However, Ukrainian officials previously discussed Kiev's plans to blow up the dam.
