    Russian special operation in Ukraine

    The Ukrainian armed formations were unable to strike at the critical infrastructure of the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP), thanks to the skillful and competent work of the Russian Armed Forces. This is stated in the statement of the Interdepartmental Coordination Headquarters of the Russian Federation for Humanitarian Response.

    “So, on August 5, 2022, Ukrainian nationalists, during a planned shift of employees, launched an artillery strike on the territory of the Zaporozhye NPP. <...> Only thanks to the skillful, competent and effective actions of the units of the Russian Armed Forces to cover the nuclear power facility, the critical infrastructure of the nuclear power plant was not damaged, ”the statement of the Russian defense department says.

    Earlier it was reported that on August 5, Ukrainian nationalists fired twice at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation noted that a major fire and a possible radiation accident at the ZNPP were avoided only by a lucky chance. Due to the shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, some residents of the city of Energodar were left without electricity. The head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, warned of the danger of a catastrophe due to the provocations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The shelling of Zaporozhye is connected with the fact that Russia took control of most of the region during a special operation in Ukraine. The goal is the demilitarization of Ukraine and assistance to Donbass, the president noted.
