The Russian Defense Ministry reported that Ukrainian forces bombed the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
The statement of the Ministry of Defense states: “Ukrainian armed formations carried out three artillery attacks on the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and the city of Energodar on August 5, 2022 from 16:20 to 17:24”152. mm”.
She noted that the shelling was carried out by one of the units of the 45th artillery brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from firing positions near the village of Marzhanets, which is controlled by the people of Kiev.
And the Russian defense warned that artillery shelling by the Ukrainian army of the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant could lead to a major fire and a radiation accident.
Luckily, Ukrainian rockets missed the nearby oil depot and oxygen plant, preventing a major fire and possible radiological accident at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.
She noted that a special mockery of the provocation of the Kyiv regime is due to the fact that it took place during the international conference on the implementation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in New York under the auspices of the UN.
“We call on international organizations to condemn the criminal actions of the Zelensky regime, which is carrying out nuclear terrorist attacks. In the event of further provocations at the nuclear power plant, the entire responsibility for the failure of its operation lies with the Kiev regime,” she added.
