Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed on Tuesday that Russia planted explosives on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant to simulate an attack.
Zelensky said in a recorded video, “Now we have information from our intelligence that the Russian military has placed objects resembling explosives on the roof of several power units of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant,”
It is worth noting that there are three nuclear power plants on territory that Ukraine controls — Rivno, Khmelnytskyi and South Ukraine, and the Russian troops seized the Zaporizhzhia power plant, Europe’s largest nuclear facility, in February 2022.
This raises an important question: with the failure of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, are Washington and London planning for a big security event (a false flag attack?) to justify direct intervention to save their ally in Kyiv?
