With the Russian troops now withdrawn to the East bank, it makes more sense for the Russian troops to blow up the dam. That way, when the big push comes, Ukraine no longer has the option to do it to sweep away Russian pontoon bridges.
Wouldn't it make sense to wait until the Ukies tried to cross the river before blowing the dam? It would make for some good social media videos, I'm sure.

I guess they want to make sure they do it while they have control.

The Russians have blown up the bridges. There is no way for the Ukies to cross the Dnieper other than by inflatables. I don't think they have access to pontoon bridges, but I could be wrong. If they try to cross the river, the Russians will wreck them.

Isn't ISW a shill neocon website? Why not post Southfront maps and assessments instead?
Yes, ISW is one of the most egregious propaganda outlets in existence. Their articles are often so shameless, they're simply unreadable. They cannot refrain from trying to denigrate Russians with practically every sentence they write, often with the same narratives that have painfully obviously been false since early March yet get repeated with ritual consistency. The lion's share of the citations in their articles are literally just the Ukrainian General Staff. Furthermore, their leadership are practically all top-level US national security functionaries, with careers made in the Iraq War era.
I am not telling you not to post ISW, because there can be merit in seeing what the US narrative is saying, and there's nothing wrong with trying to get multiple sides of a story, and they could even be right occasionally, but just do know who you are dealing with with ISW. This source is practically the official mouthpiece of the US military-intelligence complex.

It is worth posting an ISW map every week or so to see what USGov is thinking.

The detonation of the dam was done just enough to make it impossible for the enemy to advance. If they want to keep their side of the city from being totally flooded, Ukraine needs to repair it within a week or so? Not going to happen especially if the power grid is on the brink.

The Dniper river serves as a natural barrier in this war, I doubt anyone will try to cross it outside of winter. I've read many guesses that eventually Ukraine is partitioned along the river.

If the river serves as a natural barrier then Russia still needs to conquer the whole north east of of the country.
Basically everything between Kiev and Kharkov.
Maybe that's the plan for 2023.

Here on these 2 maps you can see how the entire river clearly as it cuts through the whole of Ukraine from north to south.

This doesn't correspond to the parts of the country with a high percentage of Russians in the population. Maps of that show that part of the area east of Kyiv is anti-Russian. On the other hand, the Russian sector crosses the river in the south going to Odessa and beyond. I don't think the river will end up being the boundary, convenient though it might from a defensive standpoint.
