Artillery bombing of Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant: Who Exactly have Lost Their Minds? With NATO munitions?

from – August 10, 2022 and, summarised by thefreeonline

It’s worth noting that this was not the first time Kiev forces have attacked the nuclear power plant with weapons supplied by NATO states. In the last few months, the plant was attacked more than once with Polish Warmate loitering munitions. Kiev proudly took responsibility for the attacks and even shared footage of some of them. As with the Bucha tragedy (which triggered mega weapons gifts to Ukraine) absolute proof cannot compete with the endlessly repeating MSM lies.

Nuclear Target> ZNPP spent nuclear fuel storage facility

Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) did not start being targeted last Friday, if we remember. Back on June 18, the Ukrainian Armed Forces deliberately hit the checkpoint of the ZNPP, knowing the shift schedule perfectly well, hoping for a large number of people waiting for buses to the satellite city of Energodar. 

The terrorist attack was not a success, but the second goal was partially achieved, the nuclear power plant workers began to refuse to go to work in such a dangerous place.

Thanks to the efforts of the military-civil administration, the tension was lifted, and the producers of “Quarter 95” [Zelensky – SZ] reported to the curators: look how clever we are, we managed to break through the air defence of a strategic object, give us a more serious weapon, we’ll do it in an adult way next time. 

Washington is not hot or cold about a nuclear catastrophe among European natives, so HIMARS MLRS appeared in Ukraine. And Europe shrugged its shoulders, continued to talk nonsense “the Russians are firing at themselves”

Kiev forces apparently used a British-made Brimstone missile in one of their recent attacks on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, which is currently held by the Russian military.The UK supplied Kiev forces with hundreds of ground-launched Brimstone missiles following the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. The Brimstone missiles supplied to Kiev forces were of the first generation which utilizes an active millimetric-wave radar seeker and an inertial navigation system.

So, if something happens to the reactors of the ZNPP according to the “Chernobyl scenario”, 70% of the radioactive fallout will go to “European partners”, such is the prevailing wind. According to the head of the National Defence Management Center of the Russian Federation, General Mikhail Mizintsev:

“In the event of an accident at the ZNPP, a global man-made catastrophe will occur that in terms of the scale of radioactive contamination will significantly exceed the consequences of accidents at the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear power plants.

The population of the Kiev, Zaporozhye, Kharkov, Poltava, Kherson, Odessa, Nikolaev, Kirovograd, Vinnytsia regions, Donbass, the border regions of Russia and Belarus, as well as Moldova, Bulgaria and Romania will be in the zone of radiation contamination.”

The issue of creating a “dirty bomb” was on the junta’s agenda.

It’s not for nothing that the very first moves of the Special Military Operation took place precisely at the Chernobyl and Zaporozhye nuclear power plants. There must have been something there that the Russians feared.

And the first attacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were aimed precisely at the site of the ground storage of dry spent fuel. There, in the open air, there are 174 special containers, each containing 24 assemblies of radioactive materials. 

If the storage is torn to shreds, nothing terrible will happen to the whole planet, it would end in terrible self uinflicted local Ukraine contamination, but the information howl could shake the foundations of the universe. 

Or hide Kiev’s machinations from the IAEA reports.

Now, about the nonsense that the producers of “Quarter 95” made up about the attacks on the ZNPP. 

How the infernal Russians brought hundreds of tons of weapons and ammunition to the station, uses the production sites as a logistics hub and an artillery position. 

And the malevolent employees of ROSATOM are ‘doing something chemical with the reactors, preparing a second Chernobyl disaster’ in order to accuse the white and furry Ukrainian neo-nazis of nuclear terrorism.

Pan Zelensky, against this background of the choicest clinical nonsense, “calls on the international community to achieve the creation of a demilitarised zone around the nuclear power plant and introduce peacekeepers” 

And sanctions against the Russian nuclear industry. Of course, this is echoed by the USA, “Western experts” and politicians, arguing that Putin is using the ZNPP to play on the West’s fears of a nuclear catastrophe, force it to abandon arms supplies and “weaken the will of NATO”. Rich…

No one is interested in documentary evidence and facts that attacks are conducted from Ukrainian territory, 155-mm shells of NATO standard arrive, and one of the attacks was carried out by a Polish-made “WARMATE” strike aircraft complex…

Who is the “nuclear terrorist” here? Useless, deaf as a post and Russia is to blame. White House press secretary) said:

“The United States calls on Russia to cease all military operations at or near Ukrainian nuclear facilities and return control of them to Ukraine.”

I won’t even waste any space on selected nonsense performed by the head of European diplomacy Borrell and US Secretary of State Blinken, complete clinical cases in my opinion. 

Anything but this is deemed ‘Disinformation’-: “The Russians have placed artillery systems on the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and are treating the UAF with impunity in the hope that there will be no return fire from peace-loving Banderist fighters at the nuclear facility”. 

And UN Secretary-General Guterres calls for an end to the shelling. At the same time, without naming the culprit of provocations, not wanting to send experts to investigate on the spot.

And Biden, having conquered his jacket and once again greeted the void after quarantine, immediately signed a new $1 billion military aid package for Ukraine, generously pouring on Kiev ammunition for HIMARS.

 If there are tactical missiles “ATACMS Block IA” with a high-explosive warhead … it’s necessary to raise the alarm. 

Their inertial control system with GPS guidance is capable of delivering supplies to stationary targets with a spread of five meters, and the final section of the flight path is vertical, a very difficult target for air defence systems. The range of such an ATACMS missile is about 90 kilometres.

So, there is no hopefully real threat of destruction of the reactors of the ZNPP with the weapons that Kiev has at its disposal today. 

This does not mean that they will not appear, but even several ATACMS Block IA missiles must consistently break through the two concrete floors of the reactor hall and the protection domes in order to open the way for the next high-precision ammunition to the “rods and glasses” of the reactors. 

Theb stations are able to withstand the fall of an airliner or a front-line bomber with a full load. In engineering theory, although no one has ever tested it.

If we talk about certain technological sections that provide cooling of the reactor and water circulation (the accident at Fukushima), then the effective impact of tactical missiles is completely excluded, vital nodes and pipelines of the primary circuit with radiation water are located deep underground and covered with “heavy concrete” of the foundation and base of the reactor.

The only thing I see that can cause the catastrophe is an unpredictable chain of damage to service systems, which would end in a major design accident. 

The protection should be activated and the fuel rods are automatically reset. The point here is also the qualification of personnel, their professionalism, the ability to act correctly in an emergency. But the probability of such scenarios is low. (fingers crossed).

Find out who benefits from it…

Now about the reasons that prompted the Kiev junta to engage in dangerous nuclear games. It is impossible to look into the heads of war criminals and terrorists, but it is quite possible to build guesses. 

ROSATOM employees have been working at the ZNPP for two weeks, they are busy integrating the plant into the unified energy system of Russia through the Kakhovskaya power line. 

Curator of the restoration of Donbass and the liberated territories of Ukraine, Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin ordered that all work be completed before the autumn, uninterrupted power as far as Crimea is needed.

And the remnants of Zelensky’s Ukraine would have to pay more for electricity from then on, because the ZNPP could be disconnected from the Ukrainian energy system, any supplies … please, in rubles, which is an unthinkable humiliation. 

This might be part of Ukrainian motivation for their suicidal bombing campaign against Europe’s biggest Nuclear Station.

Of course, the terrorists seek to cause panic among the personnel of the nuclear power plant, cut off electricity in the Zaporozhye region, and disrupt the holding of a referendum on joining Russia.

They must also prevent the appearance of IAEA experts by regular shelling.

Since I have the opportunity to look at the pipes of another nuclear power plant from the veranda of my own dacha and have a chance to exchange a couple of phrases (over the fence) with the nuclear engineer about the current situation, I will risk this advice: you need to act quickly and decisively.

First of all, if the ZNPP is stopped, it will take just three days. 

The bombardment will not stop (unless criminals get their hands on it from Washington), the reactors will not be damaged, but there are a lot of other vulnerabilities at such a facility that can cause an unpredictable cascade of accidents with the sad result of an automatic protection system being triggered.

It would be calmer if the reactors cool down as planned. If the primary circuit equipment is working, maintaining pressure and temperature, it significantly reducing the risks of emergency situations.

 Loss of power generation? There is still time to move the front line at least 80-90 kilometers away from the nuclear power plant, thereby eliminating the threat of HIMARS with ATACMS Block IA missiles, which I am sure will soon appear. But what about the adjacent Ukrainian cities.

Will they try “Tochka-U” or attack drones? No big deal, Russian air defence systems can handle these demons without any problems. Moreover, the first munition has a cluster warhead, and drones with small bombs can only rattle the nerves of personnel and security.

 But it would not hurt to set a strict Ultimatum condition: Just one more shell …and the territory still controlled by Kiev will be disconnected from the power supply.

Rack one’s brains over how to reconnect them to the Rovno and Khmelnitsky nuclear power plants, pull the wires. Just don’t negotiate …
