Russian soldiers have raised the Russian flag on Thursday over the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant in southern Ukraine, according to video footage shared on social media.

The Kakhovka Hydroelectric Station is a run-of-river power plant on the Dnieper River. Kakhovka is a port city located on the reservoir’s southern bank. The primary purpose of the dam is hydroelectric power generation, irrigation and navigation. It is the 6th and the last dam in the Dnieper cascade.

Russian forces have launched a massive military attack against Ukraine.

Russian troops are reported to be moving towards the town of Nova Kakhovka in Kherson Oblast.

A resident of the town of Chaplynka in the region told the Kyiv Independent that the mobilized Russian troops moving through from the Russian-annexed Crimea include tanks, armored personnel carriers, and multiple rocket launchers as terrified families seek cover.

Russia has also launched a massive air assault on the Antonov International Airport in Hostomel, just outside the capital city of Kyiv, Ukraine on Thursday at noon.

Video footage shows dozens of Russian Mi-8 helicopters operating in the airport area of Ukraine’s capital.
