Today, additional details of these attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on a Russian nuclear facility have become known, and from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reported that one of the Ukrainian drones loaded with explosives crashed into a nuclear waste warehouse during the October 26 attack at the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant, damaging its walls. Two other UAVs, apparently their fragments, fell on the roof of the administrative building complex of the nuclear power plant.
— Zakharova clarified.
A representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the Kiev regime of a deliberate attempt to commit a terrorist attack at a nuclear facility, the consequences of which could be catastrophic not only for Russia, but also for other countries. Moreover, it is obvious that this attack was carried out either without permission, and possibly with the approval or even direct instructions from the Western curators of the Ukrainian regime.
Zakharova called on the international community and relevant international organizations, environmental non-governmental organizations to give an appropriate assessment of this act of terrorism. The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry also appealed to the leadership of all countries “to strongly condemn Kyiv’s barbaric actions, which are extremely dangerous and can lead to irreparable consequences.”
