Ukraine power plant shelled again, Zelenskiy rails at Russian ‘nuclear terror’



Ukraine claimed that Russian bombardment continued on Sunday (7 Aug) and had damaged three radiation sensors as well as injured a worker at Zaporizhzhia’s power plant. This attack was the second on Europe’s largest nuclear facility.

Volodymyr Zelenskiy (the Ukrainian president) called Saturday’s bombardment “Russian nuclear terror”. Additional international sanctions were imposed on Moscow’s nuclear industry as a result. Kyiv claimed on Friday that Russia had struck a powerline at the plant.

According to the Russian-inserted authority, Ukraine attacked the site using multiple rocket launchers. This caused damage to administrative buildings as well as an area near a storage facility.

The Zaporizhzhia events have alarmed the world.

Rafael Mariano Grossi was the head of International Atomic Energy Agency. He warned Saturday that it “underlines the very real risk of a nuclear disaster.”

As four ships from Ukraine Black Sea ports left, the first cargo ship docked since the Russian invasion of February 24, while a deal was being made to allow Ukraine to export food to the rest of the world.

The four ships that left carried nearly 170,000 tonnes corn and other food. Under a deal to lower food prices around the world, the four ships left for Turkey and the United Nations.

Russia and Ukraine together accounted for nearly a third global grain exports prior to the February 24th invasion of Moscow by Russian President Vladimir Putin. This was a “special military operation” that Russian President Vladimir Putin called. As a result, famine has threatened some parts of the globe.

Putin’s troops are determined to seize control of Donbas in east Ukraine, where pro-Moscow separatists seized territory after the Kremlin annexed Crimea to its south in 2014.

According to the Ukrainian military on Sunday, Russian forces intensified their attack in north and northwest Donetsk (Donbas). According to it, the Russians attacked Ukrainian positions near the fortified settlements Piski & Avdiivka and also shelled other areas in Donetsk.

Kyiv asserts that Russia has started to build up troops in the South of Ukraine in order to stop any counter-offensive by Kherson.

According to the chief war crimes prosecutor for Ukraine, almost 26,000 war crime cases were being investigated since the invasion. One hundred and fifty-five people were indicted, while 15 others were detained. Russia denies targeting civilians.

At the International Chess Federation, a proxy battle was fought. Arkady Davorkovich, former Russian Vice Prime Minister, won a second term and defeated Andrii Baryshpolets.

Amnesty International has apologized after days of controversy over a report that claimed Ukraine was endangering civilians. Zelenskiy was angered by this report and he asked Amnesty International’s Ukraine head to resign.
