Who Do Russians Blame for the Kakhovka Dam's Destruction?

Ukraine's Kakhovka dam was destroyed in the early hours of June 6, sparking an environmental and humanitarian crisis in the partially-occupied Kherson region. Russia and Ukraine have blamed each other for causing the collapse of the dam.

But who do Russians believe is responsible for the catastrophe? We asked people on the streets of Moscow what they think.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
