The collapse of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric station in the Kherson region of Ukraine has become one of the most serious damage to critical infrastructures in February 2022, when the war between Ukraine and the Russian Federation began. This was reported on the page of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Twitter.
