“At the site of the impact, we observe a water flow of 100 m3 per second, which represents a large volume. The water level of the Inkulets (river) changes every hour,” said Kyrillo Tymoshenko, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration.
According to him, the center of the city of 600,000 people and another district are “at risk of flooding”.
“This is a challenge for all of us, but the situation is under control. All services are engaged to eliminate the threat as soon as possible,” he added in a telegram.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, originally from Krivy Rik, announced earlier that the Russian strike had targeted “hydraulic infrastructure” there and caused no casualties. According to him, it was “an attempt to flood the grivy rig”.
The governor of the region, Valentin Reznitchenko, for his part, noted that seven Russian Kh-22 missiles were launched from one plane, which “seriously damaged” this infrastructure.
