The Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant could explode at any moment, Ukrainian intelligence chief Indesh said. According to. Kirilo BudanovThe head of Ukrainian military intelligence (HUR) said that the situation has never been worse than in these moments.
Russian military completes preparations to blow up Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.
The intelligence chief said Russian forces would stop the advance by causing a nuclear holocaust if the Ukrainian counteroffensive succeeds. According to Kirilo Butano, the Russians had already developed and approved a plan to blow up the occupied Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, so the risk of a catastrophe had never been greater. The Ukrainian intelligence chief added that an explosion could happen at any time, as Russian forces stationed at the nuclear power plant were only waiting for instructions.
According to Ukrainian intelligence, Russian troops delivered vehicles loaded with explosives to four of the six reactors, and it was not known whether they entered those units during the June 15 visit by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Budanov believes that if the Russian forces on the left bank of the Dnieper are defeated, they can blow up the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, because in this way they prevent further Ukrainian advances, but he does not rule out that possibility either. Russian forces use it as a preemptive strike against nuclear plant sabotage. This is also conceivable after the Kahowka Dam burst.
