Ukrainian dam, which was vital for the production of food has been demolished

In Ukraine It appears there is evidence that Russian army has destroyed an underground dam during the middle of June, between 5 and 6.

Based on EastFruit experts, the detonation of the dam that is part of Kakhovska hydroelectric power station Kakhovska hydroelectric power plant is not only a natural and humanitarian catastrophe, which will cause flooding across vast regions and towns however, it could also impact the security of food.

The irrigation system has allowed to cultivate up to 80 percent of the vegetables grown in Ukraine and also a large percentage of grapes and fruits. Nearly all the fruits of warmer climate are from Ukraine including peaches grapes, cherries, apricots and more. were harvested using irrigation of the Kakhovka reservoir. A majority of the greenhouses for summer were able to supply the people of Ukraine as well as Moldova with cheap tomato, eggplants, cucumbers and peppers were situated in the tributaries from the Kakhovka irrigation system.

Without irrigation today the region is unable to cultivate almost every agricultural products in the area including vegetables and fruits. In reality, the area only receives about 400 millimeters of rainfall each year, with the vast majority of them fall during the winter months, i.e. in the absence of the growth season.

It could take 5 to 10 years to repair the dam and irrigation system. This is only possible when the land isn’t contested anymore. In the meantime five years seems like a realistic scenario that can be extremely challenging to achieve in reality.
