NATO calls for ‘urgent’ inspection of Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky calls on residents of occupied territories to stay away from Russian bases

NATO considers it “urgent” that the UN nuclear watchdog conduct an inspection of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya plant, which is under Russian military control, Atlantic Alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday.

“It is urgent to authorize an inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and to ensure the withdrawal of all Russian troops,” Stoltenberg said at a news conference in Brussels.

For his part, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday asked civilians living in the “occupied territories” of Russian troops to stay away from military installations controlled by Moscow. He did so just one day after another attack on Kremlin military targets in the Crimean peninsula was recorded, the third in a month.

“Please don’t go near the military facilities of the Russian army and all those places where they store ammunition and equipment, where they have their headquarters,” Zelensky asked during his daily speech. “Be very careful,” he demanded of the Ukrainian residents of Crimea, Donbas and Kharkov.

Forces in Kiev have recently sharpened their target, launching attacks on Russian military installations that until now seemed out of reach. This is the case on the Crimean peninsula. Three attacks in the past month have prompted warnings in Moscow that it sees its rear end exposed to the Himars missile launch system, which stands for “High Mobility Artillery Rocket System.”

The radius can reach up to 300 kilometers and the novelty is that they are very accurate. American-made Washington is equipping Kiev with this powerful weapon that allowed Ukrainian forces to reach an air base on August 9 and destroy at least 17 enemy aircraft. The attack has not been officially claimed, but Ukrainian military sources quoted by “The New York Times” attribute the attack to an elite unit.

A Russian army ammunition stockpile was also hit on Tuesday in Maiskoye, Crimea. Moscow attributes it to sabotage, but everything points to a paradigm shift in war. In this regard, Zelensky’s request suggests that this type of attack on the Russian rearguard will continue in the coming weeks.

On the other hand, Kiev in Kherson, a strategic region in the south linked to Crimea, has launched a fierce counter-offensive in recent weeks to regain lost ground. Just yesterday, the Ukrainian General Staff reported through its Telegram channel about a bombing raid on a Russian base. The attack resulted in the destruction of facilities and vehicles. According to Kiev, twelve Russian soldiers were killed in the attack.
