Since the plans to build the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Station 2 in the Kherson region became public, the confrontation between the developers and activists, scientists and other engaged citizens has been incessant. They have risen up to defend the environment, historic heritage, and their right to health. Which environmental risks does the construction and use of the Kakhovka HEPS 2 carry? Can one argue that the power station’s construction is reasonable? And what are the public’s chances of defending their right to health and a clean environment?
