Russian media post videos of Kakhovka HPP road bridge explosion. According to ISW, Russian troops blew up the nearby dam while retreating

Russian media have posted videos of the road bridge explosion at the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP). The footage was shared by Russian TV channel 5TV and newspaper Izvestia.

Yesterday, 11 November, American company Maxar posted satellite images of the destroyed dam near the Kakhovka HPP, which had been blown up during the Russian troops’ retreat, as well as images of the destroyed Antonivka road bridge and Darivka bridge.

CNN reports that, according to the satellite images of the Kakhovka HPP, it was the dam that spans the Dnipro River that was damaged. The last explosions on the dam occurred on 10 November, after the Russian forces’ retreat, according to CNN’s information.

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) claims that the satellite images confirm declarations from both Ukrainian and Russian sources about Russia’s troops destroying the Antonivka road bridge, a railways bridge across the Dnipro River in the Kherson city area, a bridge across the Dnipro River in the area of the Kakhovka HPP, and the Darivka bridge that crosses the Inhulets River.

According to ISW’s experts, Russian forces plan to thus block the advance of Ukraine’s troops into the central part of the Kherson region.
