The Kremlin on Tuesday said an attack on a major dam in Moscow-occupied southern Ukraine was “deliberate sabotage” by Kyiv, which wanted to cut off Russian-occupied Crimea from water.

“We can already unequivocally declare (this was) deliberate sabotage by the Ukrainian side,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “One of the aims was to deprive Crimea of water.”
