After the destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP), trash, furniture and household appliances are being washed up on the shores of the Black Sea. 

Residents of Odesa are posting photos and videos of their findings on the coastline.

Serhii Bratchuk, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Volunteer Army Pivden (South), posted a video taken from local social networks.


The video shows a windowpane, a refrigerator and a gas tank floating on the waves.

Suspilne reports that small animals and tree branches are also being washed ashore. Despite this, people still continue to swim in the sea. 

"I am shocked. A bunch of trash floating in the sea. We were here recently, and the beach was open, but now everything is closed. A tree, a t-shirt, reeds and a bunch of branches," says a local resident.
