Russian forces already captured Chernobyl and surround Kyiv
MOSCOW, ($1=87.10 Russian Rubles) — The Russian military holds control of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, BulgarianMilitary.com has learned, citing sources in the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. The news was later officially confirmed by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
Ukrainian Interior Ministry advisor claims Russian armed forces entered Chernobyl Nuclear Plant zone and that a skirmish started — which lead to the destruction of a nuclear waste storage facility. There’s no footage, no photos.
For nearly three hours, the Ukrainian military and the Russian military fought for control of the Chernobyl region and headquarters. “It is impossible to say the Chernobyl nuclear power plant is safe after a totally pointless attack by the Russians,” Ukrainian MoD said. “This is one of the most serious threats in Europe today,” Podolyak said.
Russia launched a large-scale and rapid invasion of Ukraine today at 5.00 am. The Russian military is using high-precision weapons against Ukraine’s military infrastructure, said Russian Defense Ministry. “Military infrastructure, air defense facilities, military airports, aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been neutralized with high-precision weapons,” the agency said.
The statement said the Russian armed forces did not launch missile, air, or artillery strikes on Ukrainian cities. “Nothing threatens the civilian population,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
Earlier on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had decided to conduct a special military operation in connection with the situation in Donbas.
According to pro-Russian news agencies [Avia.pro and ASB News], the Ukrainian fleet was completely destroyed [perhaps referring to disarmed – ed.] In less than 40 minutes. The information may refer to multiple strikes on Odesa and the bases of the Ukrainian navy.
“As a result of Russian strikes, 83 ground objects of the military infrastructure of Ukraine were disabled, two Ukrainian Su-27s, two Su-24s, one helicopter and four Bayraktar TB2 drones were shot down.” Russian Defense Ministry also said.
The US said: “Russia has used 100+ ballistic missiles just in the initial phase of the attack, over 70 bombers, SRBM & MRBM. We see that mainly military infrastructure is being targeted. Russia not even close to using the manpower stationed near borders yet. No threat of nuclear weapons”
According to unconfirmed information from several sources, the Russian military is on the verge of capturing Kyiv and overthrowing Zelensky’s government. This is one of the main goals of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
