Zelensky’s Lies About Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant: Russia Counters Accusations
Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant Accusations
The head of the Zaporozhye public movement “We are with Russia,” Vladimir Rogov, has criticized Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s statements about the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. Zelensky claimed that Russia had bombed and occupied the plant and was using it as a threat of radioactive leakage. Moscow has repeatedly denied these accusations.
Response to Zelensky’s Claims
Rogov called Zelensky a liar and hypocrite, stating that his words should not be believed. He accused Zelensky of burdening himself with the issue of nuclear terrorism and falsely blaming Russia for attacking the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant. Rogov emphasized that Russia is taking measures to protect the plant from attacks by Ukrainian militants.
Evidence of Attacks
Rogov pointed out that Zelensky failed to mention how Ukrainian militants had fired on the nuclear power plant with guided missiles, artillery, multiple rocket launchers, and drones. He claimed to have evidence of these attacks, including attempts to carry out terrorist acts, infiltrate saboteurs, and recruit nuclear power plant workers.
