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
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.
