“Russian invaders have announced an unexpected day off at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. On 19 August, only operational personnel will be stationed at the ZNPP. No other employees will be allowed to enter. It is also known that representatives of Rosatom [Russia’s State Nuclear Energy Corporation], who has been constantly at the plant, have urgently left the territory of the facility.”
Intelligence drew attention to the fact that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced the alleged preparation of a “terrorist attack” by the Ukrainian army.
Ukrainian intelligence officers believe that following their extensive shelling of the ZNPP, Russian invaders could “raise the stakes” and stage a real terrorist attack on Europe’s largest nuclear facility.
