Russian occupying forces heavily mined the site of a solar power plant in the Bilozerka region in Kherson Oblast, which was a critical power generation facility prior to the full-scale war, local law enforcement reported on Facebook on Nov. 17.
The power plant was looted and damaged while it was occupied by Russian troops. The residents it supplied with power were left without.
"After de-occupation, the workers still can't do their job to generate much-needed power because the site is heavily mined,” the report reads.
“In near future specialists will come to check and demine the territory.”
Retreating Russian forces in Kherson Oblast mined a great deal of the liberated city and oblast, including the main Kherson police station – which was mined so heavily it could only be blown up.
By time of publication, Ukrainian demining units have inspected over 400 hectares of the liberated portion of Kherson Oblast, and removed over 4,000 explosive devices.
