On July 20, Kiev forces carried out another attack on the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) which is controlled by the Russian military.
Local authorities in Zaporizhia said that none of the power plant’s reactors were damages as a result of the attack, which was carried out with Polish-made Warmate loitering munition. The authorities and RIA Novosti shared photos showing the remains of the munitions.
The Warmate, which was developed by WB Electronics, has a range of 40 kilometers and an endurance of up to 50 minutes. The loitering munition relies on a GPS-aided inertial navigation system. For target detection and terminal guidance, the munition is equipped with a fixed electro-optical seeker. It can be equipped with several different payloads, including fragmentation, high-explosive anti-tank and thermobaric warheads.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine purchased an unknown number of Warmate loitering munitions from Poland a few years ago. After the start of the Russian special military operation, several reports revealed Polish plans to supply Kiev with more loitering munitions of this type.
This was not the first such attack on the Zaporizhia NPP. On April 27, Kiev forces launched two Warmate loitering munitions at the plant. However, they were both shot down by the Russian military. Later on July 12, Kiev forces carried out a larger attack on the plant, targeting it with several Warmate munitions and artillery fire at the same time.
The Zaporizhia NPP is the largest nuclear plant in all of Europe. The repeated Ukrainian attacks on the plant threatens the safety of the entire country and all of its neighbors. Despite this, the international community is yet to condemn these attacks. Kiev appears to be ready to take this huge risk just to score a meaningless victory.
and in france the version is “russia is bombing the nuclear power plant to accuse ukraine” lol what an asshole like every day
Yes, it is totally crazy what’s going on in the western press. According to those cowardly scumbag reporters, all the Ukrainians are saints who haven’t bombed anything, or harmed anybody, whereas the Russians basically are bombing the Ukraine 24/7 and killing everything that moves. All lies of course. To be able to read western news papers and web sites and get to the truth, you just need to change the word Ukrainian to Russian and vice versa. Suddenly it all makes much more sense.
If the UN had been the organisation is claims to be, or should have been, Putin could have asked them for help in keeping the nuclear plants of Ukraine safe from harm. But as we all know, the U in UN doesn’t stand for United but Useless. Yes, it is a totally useless organisation, which can’t be trusted as they usually side with the US and their allies, no matter how many civilians the Americans kill in their wars. So its therefore up to the Russians to prevent the Kiev junta from destroying their own nuclear power plants. It is really quite bizarre.
Try and access BBC iPlayer, there is a good documentary there about the rampant corruption in the UN. It really is quite astounding.
Nice tip, Dan. I’ll check it out. Thanks.
Again, Russian whining. The answers to your dilemma are in the report, PUSH the Ukrainians OUT OF FUCKING RANGE!!!!!!!!!!!
Attacking Nuclear Power Facilities is a Mass Extinction Risk
If you fail to understand this you don’t know shit about nuclear power, nuclear weapons and nuclear waste.
If you have any questions about the risks, make comments below and I will answer them. My background includes 30 years of investigating national security secrets. I doubt anyone has the courage to ask the tough questions.
wait, they deleted my comment and the comment of the person who replied to me when we were totally on the good side but the shitty comments and bots are not deleted? hey what the hell is deleting comments from people who support you wtf
Hey, Erina, it was my reply to you that was removed and another one posted just before that one. Something is seriously wrong here at SF. Some of the people commenting here believe SF has been hacked. Yesterday I had half a dozen pro-Russian comments removed, for no apparent reason and so far today at least 2, possibly 3 have disappeared. Why, SF? Why???
hacked or a traitor in the SF team? but thank you, my support for you from France no matter in which country you are
You are also in my thoughts, dear Erina. Bless you.
Do what you have to do, you demon. Hell will soon be your final destination.
You disqust me you Pro Putin Bit**h, none of you Putin Cocroaches will be allowed to post on here anymore!
Me posting comments here or anywhere else is of no consequence to anybody. The outcome of the war has already been decided on the spiritual plane. And guess what, you pathetic scumbag, Russia won! Ukraine will soon be liberated from you devils.
Its time for Russian Nukes, real time !
mix polish tech with ukiue know how–the result-danish failure
If Ukraine won’t own it, then they’ll wreck it out of spite. They really are a deplorable nation.
I would LOVE to be in the war room discussing strategies and targets.
They want to make a new chernobyl and i guarantee you no one in the world will talk about the drone that hit it. The news will say nuclear powerblant blown up cause of russian agression… The europeans and true ukrainians should slowly realise that the goal of the us is scorched earth before they have to give up europe. Like the romans poisened the water wells.
amerikan incompetency has lost everything —now ukies take rowboat to Boston
The Polish military presented the drones almost as superweapon but for any case as high-tech. As we can see in the last photo, the telemetry receiver is a cheap, not jamming-proof FRSky one, unit cost on Chinese sites is around 30 euro. The taoglas antenna antenna, visible in the same photo is a cheap consumer market one. So the brave Poles put together an hobbyst system and use it as “weapon”. Just like some entry-level terrorist group would proceed.
Easy to produce, cheap and high damage guaranteed…. would not want hundred of them to your brigade so you can blast your enemy from a safe positition on the battlefield…
Saturation bombing of Kiev should help sort out this problem. Its now time to cut the head off this monster
Tardy. VERY tardy.
