A huge dam in the Russian-controlled area of southern Ukraine was destroyed on Tuesday, leading to flash flooding in adjoining areas. Ukraine and Nato have blamed Russia for the Nova Kakhovka Dam blow-up, but Russian authorities have denied the claim and instead said Ukrainians are behind the explosion.

According to a Twitter handle named War in Ukraine that gives out news regarding the Russia-Ukraine War, the CCTV video is an old one.
