The Russians controlled the Kakhova Dam but who benefits most from it being breached?
One argument for Ukraine is gradual draining of the reservoir is better than a sudden flood during their offensive. Stalin once breached a dam in Ukraine (at a tremendous loss of Ukrainian lives) to thwart the Nazi advance. Better for Ukraine to do this now than to let the Russians do this to them later. Alternatively, the Russians did it now in an attempt to stop the Ukraine counter-offensive.
Powerline: Breakthrough near in Ukraine?
