Kremlin urges global response over Ukrainian shelling of Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant

The Ukrainians are shelling the nuclear power plant. Clearly.


Ukrainian Territorials Are Wearing Down Russian Defenses In Zaporizhzhia. Are They Preparing For A Counteroffensive?

Analysts anticipate a possible Ukrainian counteroffensive in Zaporizhzhia Oblast. So it should come as no surprise that the 110th Territorial Brigade is working over the Russian battalions in the sector. There was a noticeable increase in photos and videos from the 110th starting in August, around the same time Ukraine’s twin counteroffensives around Kharkiv and Kherson were about to kick off.

By October, the 110th again was working the Zaporizhzhia front. Brigade air-defenders reportedly shot down a Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter. The 110th’s artillery pummeled a Russian staging area around a warehouse. And this month, the brigade’s quadcopters dropped mortar bombs to knock out a Russian T-80 tank and several BTR fighting vehicles.


MOSCOW, Nov 21 (Reuters) – The Kremlin said on Monday it was concerned by what it said was repeated Ukrainian shelling of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and called on global powers to ensure that Kyiv ceased attacks on Europe’s largest nuclear power station.

Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, which is under Russian control, was rocked by shelling on Sunday, drawing condemnation from the U.N. nuclear watchdog which said such attacks risked a major disaster.

“This cannot but cause our concern,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. “We call on all countries of the world to use their influence so that the Ukrainian armed forces stop doing this.”

Reuters was unable to independently verify which side was responsible.

Reuters is unable to verify because this is Ukraine’s doing. If Russia was bombing the plant they already control, Reuters would easily be able to verify

Russia’s Rosatom says it discussed Zaporizhzhia shelling with IAEA

The head of Russia’s state-run nuclear energy agency, Rosatom, said on Monday it had discussed Sunday’s shelling of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant with the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

“The news from our team yesterday and this morning is extremely disturbing,” said IAEA head Rafael Grossi. “Explosions occurred at the site of this major nuclear power plant, which is completely unacceptable. Whoever is behind this, it must stop immediately. As I have said many times before, you’re playing with fire!”

So, Ukraine has been warned repeatedly ?

It’s obvious Ukraine wants this power station back under their control. Hence the ongoing counter offensive (see very first Forbes report) Which makes it quite obvious which party has and is continuing to attack the plant. It is Ukraine.

Ukraine’s missile fire on Poland shows they are willing to engage in very high risk, manipulative behaviour to achieve their political/military goals.

Hi Penny:

This could be the crisis that I’m expecting this week. JFT is due to testify at the EA inquiry on Friday and I suspect “something” will happen to negate his testifying. It could be a melt down of this nuclear facility and open declaration of war. IMO this is one of the most important weeks in recent history. Hope we make it through.

I’ve been having similar thoughts, Greencrow. Tried to think up excuses Schwab’s little lickspittle might use to avoid the inquiry. (If only it were an actual inquisition rather than an ever so polite questioning led by his appointed commissioner.) I thought he would not be able to get away with covid again but it could be an urgent international meeting he would have to fly off to immediately. Why is it I always feel like I’m holding my breath? I’d just like to breathe free like before THEY started creating the chaos THEY want to turn into THEIR satanical vision of order.
