Swedish ecoactivist Greta Thunberg called the undermining of the Kakhovskaya HPP an ecocide.
Russia must be held accountable for its crimes, she wrote on Twitter.
"This ecocide as a continuation of Russia's unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine is another atrocity that leaves the world speechless. Our eyes are once again on Russia, which must be held accountable for its crimes," Greta Thunberg emphasized.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi thanked the eco-activist on Twitter for her position and defense of the truth.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that the European Environmental Bureau published a statement regarding the blowing up of the Kakhovskaya HPP, in which it deeply condemned Russia for its aggression, which led to extraordinary environmental and humanitarian consequences.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, the Committee on Environmental Policy and Nature Management stated that the explosion of the dam at the Kakhovskaya HPP led to a man-made disaster and an extraordinary environmental situation that brings destruction with deep and irreversible changes in nature and environmental losses.
