Quote: “The 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 have recently been constantly at the plant, have urgently left the territory of the facility.”
Details: The intelligence service drew attention to the fact that Russia’s Defence Ministry has claimed that a “terrorist attack” is being prepared by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Russians say that preparations are underway for a high-profile provocation during the visit of UN Secretary-General António Guterres to Ukraine in order that the Russian Federation can be accused of causing a man-made disaster. The Russians are expected to accuse the Ukrainian authorities of preparing the terrorist attack.
Ukrainian intelligence officers believe that following their extensive shelling of the ZNPP, the invaders could “raise the stakes” and stage a real terrorist attack on Europe’s largest nuclear facility.
