The Russian army has lost its best-trained units and a huge amount of military equipment during its unprovoked war against Ukraine. It has become obvious that Putin will not be able to achieve his original goals. This is prompting him to commit terror: nuclear, chemical environmental terror to inflict the maximum possible damage to Ukraine, Dispatches, IFBG.
Nuclear terror has become a characteristic feature accompanying the Russian Federation’s war against Ukraine. Russian troops are systematically shelling and mining the territory and vicinity of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, which was captured last March. Russia traditionally blames Ukraine for this deliberate nuclear provocation. The failed attempt to blow up the ZNPP has not stopped the Kremlin: it is now creating the appearance of a nuclear disaster on its own territory.
On 14 July, a drone crash was recorded in the town of Kurchatov, a few kilometres from the Kursk NPP. Shortly afterwards, leading Russian media resources and propaganda telegram channels began simultaneously accusing Ukraine of this provocation. The style and manner of such publications indicated that this was a pre-planned communications operation. If a drone or missile hits the nuclear power plant – no matter on whose territory it is located – the consequences of a terrorist attack could become uncontrollable.
Russia has become a threat to the entire civilised world. The nuclear blackmail is being intensified in order to pressure the civilised world to stop supporting Ukraine. The Kremlin is not guided by common sense and does not consider civilian casualties. The shelling of ZNPP, the bombing of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, the mining of the Titan chemical plant in Crimea – these are just a few of Putin’s most telling recent crimes. Russia’s actions in Ukraine are crimes against humanity and a threat to the entire world.
