On 7 June, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of Türkiye, held a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Erdoğan offered Zelenskyy to set up a commission involving “experts from the warring parties, the UN, and the international community, including Türkiye” to conduct a “detailed investigation” into the explosion at the Kakhovka dam.
After the Russians destroyed the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant on the night of 5-6 June, a number of countries in the EU and the United States have provided Ukraine with humanitarian aid. Moldova offered to send its emergency workers to Kherson Oblast.
