RUSSIA: On Saturday, the Russian defence ministry claimed that its forces had attacked Ukrainian sites across the country and that Kyiv had been firing around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
The ministry said that the soldiers carried out attacks in the Kherson, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, and Donetsk regions. It also stated that Ukrainian forces had launched a fruitless offensive close to Pravdyne in Kherson.
According to the government, radiation readings at Zaporizhzhia, Europe’s largest nuclear power station, are still within normal range. According to the report, two instances of Ukrainian shelling were seen close to the factory on Saturday.
The foreign ministry of Ukraine’s spokeswoman refuted claims that its forces had shelled the area around the plant in the south of the nation.
According to repeated accusations from Russia and Ukraine, the Zaporizhzhia facility has been shelled. On Thursday, the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency adopted a resolution requesting that the Putin led nation end its facility occupancy.
The mayor of the pro-Russian separatist-controlled city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, Alexey Kulemzin, announced on Telegram that four persons had been killed by shelling in the city’s center.
Kulemzin noted that shell fragments from French-made Caesar howitzers had been discovered.
