"The destruction of the Kakhovka dam represents a new dimension of Russian atrocities," High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Joseph Borrell wrote on his Twitter, APA reports.

He noted that destruction of the dam is putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians at risk.

He added that attacks on civilian infrastructure qualify as war crimes.

"Russia’s attacks against Ukrainian civilian critical infrastructure reached an unprecedented level today with the destruction of the dam at Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant," Borrell noted.
