Russia Accused of ‘Planning’ Nuclear Accident in Ukraine

Of all of the terrible ways in which Russia has attempted to wage their war in Ukraine, (the war itself being inhumane and unjust to begin with), perhaps nothing can top the news of out the region this week.

That’s because the Kremlin now stands accused of attempting to “plan” a disaster at one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants.

Russia has allegedly told workers at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant not to show up to work Friday, Ukrainian military intelligence has exclusively confirmed to NBC News.

This comes amid allegations and speculation from both Russia and Ukraine that an incident is being planned Friday at the plant.

On Thursday, Russia threatened to shut down the plant, warning that there was a risk of a human-made disaster due to alleged continued shelling by Ukraine.

This is not correct, according to Ukrainian intelligence.

But Ukraine has a completely different story, according to Andriy Yusov, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate.

“There is new information, it arrived about half an hour ago, that for tomorrow, August 19, there is an order for the majority of the staff not to go to work,” Yusov told NBC News.

“This is what the Russians told their people, primarily the employees of Rosatom,” he said, referring to the Russian nuclear agency.

A conjured catastrophe at this particular site could lead to nation’s outside of Ukraine being affected – something that could bring a number of western and NATO-allied parties to the table.
