Russia planning attack on nuclear plant
Earlier, the intelligence unit of the Ukrainian army claimed without providing any evidence that Russia was planning an attack on the nuclear plant located in the south of its country, which is currently under its control. A statement released Friday by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s intelligence directorate claimed Russian forces would attack Europe’s largest Zaporizhia nuclear plant and then report radioactive leaks, prompting an international investigation.
respite for russia
It was said by the directorate that Russia would do this to end the war, so that its forces would have the time they needed to regroup before counterattacking. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in an emailed response to the AP news agency that it had no immediate comment on the allegations and that Russian officials have not commented on the Ukrainian claims.
