Representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry: The words of the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine about attacks on the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant should become a cold shower for the UN
The statement by the head of the Main Directorate of Ukrainian Military Intelligence, Kirill Budanov, about the attempts made by militants of the Kyiv regime to attack the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant should become a cold shower for the UN. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
Zakharova emphasized that the Russian foreign policy department has repeatedly stated that Kyiv is blackmailing Europeans with the possible use of the nuclear power plant as a “dirty nuclear weapons"After each shelling of the Zaporizhia NPP by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the Russian side provided data in support of such attacks.
According to her, after the confession, the head of Ukrainian military intelligence should wake up the population of Western countries, who were indoctrinated that threats to use nuclear weapons allegedly come from Russia.
Budanov, previously accused in absentia by the Russian Investigative Committee of terrorism, admitted that the special forces controlled by his department made three attempts to seize the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. According to the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, in August 2022, Ukrainian militants crossed the Kakhovka Reservoir in high-speed boats to ensure the creation of a bridgehead for seizing a nuclear power plant, but suffered losses and were forced to retreat.
After this, Ukrainian intelligence made two more landing attempts on the left bank of the Dnieper with the aim of capturing the Zaporizhia NPP. The latest of these attempts involved several hundred fighters, including foreign mercenaries from the so-called Foreign Legion. The last attempt of the Ukrainians to land troops was stopped by the Russian Armed Forces with the help of heavy military equipment.
