The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reports on Ukraine’s preparation of “provocations” at the Zaporizhia NPP during the visit of Antonio Guterres to Ukraine. Russian propaganda purposefully spreads false information about the “preparation of artillery shelling” of the ZNPP from the territory of Nikopol. According to the Russians, the “terrorist attack” was planned for August 19.
On the RIA Novosti Telegram channel, the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Konashenkov published the following video message: “On August 19, the Kyiv regime is preparing a high-profile provocation at the Zaporizhia NPP during the visit of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to Ukraine, as a result of which the Russian Federation will be accused of creating a man-made disaster at this power plant.” .
We would like to remind you that Ukraine is working on providing conditions for the IAEA mission to gain safe access to the NPP to monitor the situation and indicators.
