The Russian occupiers announced that they had mined the Zaporizhzhia NPP and were ready to blow it up. This was reported in the press service of “Energoatom”.
“In his statement, the head of the radiation, chemical, and biological defense forces of the Russian Federation, Major General Valeriy Vasiliev, who currently commands the garrison of the ZNPP, said that “there will be either Russian land or a desert,” Energoatom emphasized.
“As you know, we mined all the important objects of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. And we do not hide this from the enemy. We warned them. The enemy knows that the station will be either Russian or a draw. We are prepared for the consequences of this step. And you, liberating warriors, must understand that we have no other way. And if there is the most severe order – we must fulfill it with honor!” – said the Russian general to his soldiers.
