"My whole life was in this house. Now I have nothing," said Tetiana Pivneva, after returning to her flooded home in the Ukraine city of Kherson following the catastrophic destruction of a dam.
The June 6 breach of the Russia-controlled Kakhovka dam inundated huge swathes of the Kherson region, forcing thousands to flee and sparking fears of an environmental disaster.
Russian forces launched a major drone assault on Kiev overnight as well as attacking other regions, Ukrainian officials said early Tuesday, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.
"New massive air attack on the capital," wrote the Kiev City Military Administration, adding that it was the first attack on the city in 18 days to use Iranian-made Shahed explosive drones.
According to a post on that social network, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was visiting the Kherson region, which was hit by a flood wave after the Kakhovka dam was blown up yesterday, June 8.
A video of his visits to that region, from which thousands of people were evacuated, was also published.
