The motive behind the explosion was still being assessed, but the collapse appears likely to make it more difficult for Ukrainian forces to conduct a river crossing and also presents a difficult humanitarian challenge, the Western official said.

In the early hours of June 6, Russian troops blew up the dam of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant. The plant cannot be restored. Work is underway to evacuate people from flooded towns and villages.
