Russia’s Defense Ministry on Thursday accused Ukraine of planning a “provocation” at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant on August 19, during UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ visit to the country, Russia’s state-run RIA news agency reported.
However, the Russian ministry did not provide evidence of these accusations.
In its statement, the Russian Defense Ministry also notes that there are no Russian heavy weapons at the nuclear plant, which is under the control of Russian forces, or in nearby areas.
The Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest, has come under repeated fire in recent weeks, raising fears of a nuclear accident, with Kyiv and Moscow blaming each other for the bombings.
Ukraine accuses Russia of deploying artillery units in and around the nuclear plant facilities.
