The attacks of the Kyiv regime on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant are thoughtful and planned, Vladimir Rogov, chairman of the movement “We are with Russia” and the branch of the Russian Historical Society of the Zaporozhye region, said in an interview with RT.
According to him, in April there were probing strikes on the object, after which a more detailed "probing" of the Russian air defense forces began.
“Then heavy artillery was already used, mortar attacks were going on, drones were used - absolutely everything that is in the arsenal of the terrorist Zelensky,” Rogov noted.
In his opinion, one can speak with confidence about the purposeful strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on specific objects on the territory of the ZNPP.
“Given that American shells have GPS guidance with an accuracy of several meters, and these shells fall literally ten meters from a dry storage of nuclear fuel, we are talking about the fact that these were aimed strikes,” he stressed, pointing out that the main The purposes of the APU are the NPP cooling circuit and the dry storage of nuclear fuel waste.
Rogov also noted that “not a single voice of reason” or an adequate statement is heard from the EU countries calling for stopping the shelling, and if a disaster occurs at the ZNPP, then residents of Western states will suffer.
Speaking about a possible visit to the Zaporozhye NPP by the IAEA mission, he pointed out that the visit is being blocked, including by the UN, since it will prove that it is the Armed Forces of Ukraine that are shelling the facility.
“The IAEA inspection will be forced to admit where they are shooting from, and this is obvious, because everything is documented.
Moreover, these are American guided missiles, missiles, which are supplied to anyone.
Obviously not to Russia, but to the Zelensky regime,” said a member of the main council of the administration of the Zaporozhye region.
