Kamikaze drones hit Russian tent city near a nuclear power plant
KYIV ($1=36.78 Ukrainian Hryvnias) — The Ukrainian army has announced that it has deployed combat drones at the Enerhodar nuclear power plant, which is occupied by the Russian army. “An attack against a tent city and enemy equipment was carried out with kamikaze drones,” reported military intelligence in Kyiv. The nuclear power plant in the Zaporizhzhia region is the largest in Europe.
The Grad anti-aircraft defenses and the rocket salvo fire system were said to have been destroyed. According to the intelligence service, three Russians were killed and twelve wounded. A video circulated shows tents and people running from an explosion.
The Russian occupation administration for the Zaporizhzhia region reported the attack earlier. Accordingly, eleven employees of the power plant are said to have been injured, four of them seriously. The information provided by either party cannot be independently verified.
2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine
On 21 February 2022, the Russian government claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility on the Russia Ukraine border, and claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers who tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.
On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR as independent states, according to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole, and Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.
On 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country, as well as tanks entering via the Belarus border.
Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, in which Russia has its permanent representation, for military action to be defined as a “special military operation”, it must have a resolution issued by the UN. There is no such resolution, which automatically defines the military actions of the Russians as an invasion and war against the citizens of Ukraine.
