The Serbian government has agreed to host Ukrainian families affected by the Russian bombing of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, informs the Kherson City Military Administration.

"As a result of the negotiations, the Government of Serbia has agreed to provide temporary (4-6 months) accommodation for the families affected by the Russians' blowing up of the dam at the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant in new hotel-type refugee centers," the administration informed.

The Military Administration clarifies that those who wish to be accommodated will be placed in the city of Vranje, where about 70 Ukrainian citizens are already staying. There, Ukrainian families will be provided with a fully renovated room with a private bathroom, three meals a day, and emergency medical care.

Explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant

On the night of June 6, Russian occupants blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant. This caused the flooding of several settlements in the Kherson region. The temporarily occupied left bank suffered the most.

Some residents of the region lost their homes as a result of such actions by Russian soldiers.

Notably, Serbia refuses to provide military assistance to Ukraine and continues to cooperate with Russia. At the same time, Belgrade does not recognize the occupation of Ukrainian territories and helps our country with humanitarian aid.

At the end of August, Serbia handed over 15 trucks of humanitarian aid to Ukraine for the victims of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant explosion.
