Provocation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the Zaporozhye NPP
A single Russian recon and strike drone «Orion» was used by the Russian forces to destroy a command and observation post of the «Aidar» battalion in Donbass — the Russian Ministry of Defense reported. The footage was published as: «The command and observation post of the ’’Aidar’’ battalion on the territory of the DPR was destroyed by a Russian drone ’’Inohodets». «Inohodets» is the name of the «Orion» type drones, adopted by the Russian military. The published footage showed the first combat use of this type of Russian drones during the special military operation in Donbas.
The DPR forces conduct a successful military operation in the town of Volnovakha. The military reporters reported about the entry of troops into the town. The positions of the Ukrainian troops were suppressed during the liberation of Volnovakha — the «Donbass Today» reported with a reference to the People’s Militia of the DPR. “The people’s militia of the DPR found and captured 7 «T-64BV» tanks at the positions of the 54th Ukrainian separate mechanized brigade during the successful offensive operations on Volnovakha” — the Donetsk military reported.
The Russian forces captured the city of Energodar, the Zaporojskaya nuclear power plant, and the nearby territories — Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the Russian ministry of defense, stated during a briefing. The Ukrainian National Guards, who were guarding the power plant, left the facility and disappeared before the Russian forces showed up. Last night, the Ukrainian military tried to make a provocation. A patrol of the Russian Guard at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant was attacked. The Ukrainian firefighters who arrived at the fire site extinguished the fire. Currently the staff of Zaporozhye nuclear power plant are working as usual. The radiation level in the station is normal.
Nikolaev and Odessa regions are surrounded by the Russian forces. Important bridgeheads are captured by now. Spetsnaz took positions on the right bank of the Southern Bug. Pinpoint air strikes were carried out on the ammo depots, military bases, and other objects of strategic importance located on the Black Sea coast. Russian warships with troops are approaching the city of Odessa.
The Russian troops are methodically clearing the city of Mariupol. The situation is being complicated by the Azov nationalists who are planting bombs inside local buildings, such as the factory, the university, schools and hospitals. They captured and delivered hostages in there — namely the local women, old people, and children. The Russian military organized a humanitarian corridor at the Mariupol-Shirokino highway. If civilian cars manage to escape the city — the Ukrainian troops open fire on them. There is information that the first residents began to leave the city of Mariupol.
Most of the Russian forces near Kharkov are staying outside the city. The cleansing of the city by assault groups of the special forces is in a full swing. The situation is similar with the city of Mariupol. The Ukrainian nationalists are still resisting. They move in mobile groups along the perimeter of the city, using the so-called «nomadic guns». They place their firing positions only in the residential areas. Snipers, machine gunners, and ATGM troops took positions on the roofs of houses and administrative buildings. Booby traps are being placed in crowded areas. IEDs are being installed on roads and rooftops. A group of Chinese students tried to escape the city. The Ukrainian nationalists opened fire on them with small arms. 2 young men were seriously injured. Constantine Reztsov, specially for the ANNA NEWS
