German Foreign Minister blames Russian invasion of Ukraine for dam breach

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock blamed Russia's invasion of Ukraine for the destruction of the Kakhovka dam on Tuesday, saying Germany was working intensively to get an exact picture of the situation there.

"A dam near a nuclear power plant is misused as a weapon of war and human lives are put in grave danger. There is only one thing responsible for this environmental catastrophe: Russia's criminal war of aggression on Ukraine," tweeted Baerbock.
