The Zaporizhia nuclear power plant is bombed with Western made guided missiles

Attacks on the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant are being carried out by Ukrainian troops using Western-made guided missiles, said the spokesman for the administration of the region, Vladimir Rogov.

“Note that the bombing of the nuclear power plant will be carried out by guided missiles made by the Anglo-Saxons themselves. The fact is that they are dangerous because they are guided and go where they are sent,” Rogov told Rossiya 24.

He added that authorities have and will produce evidence that these types of projectiles were used.
In addition, the government spokesman pointed out that the Ukrainian army failed to damage the critical facilities of the nuclear power plant.

“The critical infrastructure of the nuclear power plant was damaged not only thanks to the skillful, competent and effective actions of the Russian soldiers,” he noted.
Earlier, Rogov said that Ukrainian troops shelled the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant and as a result of the attack the power plant could not “change shifts” in time, there were no casualties. According to him, the high-voltage power line of the Kakhovskaya substation was damaged during the bombing of the Zaporizhia NPP from Kyiv.

On August 11, authorities in Zaporizhia province in south-eastern Ukraine reported that anti-aircraft defenses repelled another attack by Ukrainian troops on the nuclear power plant, carried out using drones and rockets.
Another attack later occurred, affecting a high-voltage power line and causing a fire in a field.

Previously, Ukrainian troops had repeatedly bombed the plant. Last week, an attack caused a fire in a hydrogen line, cutting power to some of Reactor 3’s equipment and reducing Reactor 4’s generating capacity.
At a meeting of the UN Security Council convened by Russia on the Zaporizhia power plant, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, assured that there was currently “no immediate threat” to the safety of the power plant, but warned that the situation could change at any time.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 to “protect people who have been victims of ill-treatment and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years”. According to President Vladimir Putin, their goal is to “demilitarize and denazify Ukraine” and bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against the civilian population” in Donbass.

According to a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry, the armed forces are only attacking Ukrainian military infrastructure and troops, and on March 25 they completed the main tasks of the first phase – significantly reducing Ukraine’s combat potential.
