Kyiv has changed its mind about a request to give the floor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at a meeting of the UN Security Council on blowing up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station (HPP). This was told to RIA Novosti by sources in the UN Security Council.

“Ukraine withdrew its request,” one of the agency’s interlocutors said. Initially, Kyiv asked to be allowed to speak to the Ukrainian leader via video link.

Kakhovskaya HPP was damaged on the night of June 6. As a result of numerous impacts, the dam support was damaged, after which the flooding of the territories began. Both Ukrainian and Russian officials say the station is beyond repair.
