Turkey’s Erdogan tells Zelenskiy commission could look into dam collapse


ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a phone call on Wednesday that an international commission could be formed to investigate the destruction of a vast dam on the front line between Russian and Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine and Russia blame each other for the destruction of the dam, which has sent floodwaters across a war zone and forced thousands to flee.

Erdogan told Zelenskiy that a negotiation method, similar to that regarding the Black Sea grain corridor, could be pursued to address the dam issue, a statement from Erdogan’s office said.
