Reports about the destruction of the bridge of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station turned out to be fake
Advisor to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Anton Gerashchenko, spread information that the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired at the bridge near the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, after which it fell into disrepair. “360” found out that after an attempted attack by the Ukrainian military, the design is quite suitable for use.
Gerashchenko wrote in his Telegram channel that the Armed Forces allegedly hit the bridge located near the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. According to the adviser to the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, the bridge “is currently unusable.” The publication was accompanied by a photo of the object and the hashtag “officially”. Gerashchenko added that he received information from the operational command “South” of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU).
In fact, everything turned out to be completely different. Information from Gerashchenko denied on the website kherson-news.ru. According to the publication, Russian investigators left for the scene. They looked at the bridge video appeared on the web. The video shows that the roadway is damaged in some places, but in general the structure is usable.
According to eyewitnesses, Ukrainian troops really tried to attack the dam near the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. The plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were violated by Russian air defense systems, which shot down the fired missiles. Local residents said that they did not hear the sounds of explosions. In addition, the Ukrainian side did not provide any evidence of the destruction of the bridge, which confirms that the adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Anton Gerashchenko, spread another fake.
