“The generators provided by our partners will be immediately delivered to hromadas (units of administrative division in Ukraine) for prompt restoration of essential services to residents. I thank the partners from the UN Development Programme and the Japanese government for their critically necessary and quick assistance,” said a Deputy Ministry of Communities and Territories Development, Anna Yurchenko.

According to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, on 1 July, 18 settlements in Kherson Oblast remained flooded due to the dam destruction.
