Kiev forces used a British-made Brimstone missile in one of their recent attacks on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, which is currently held by the Russian military.
On August 12, Russian sources shared photos showing the remains of the missile without clarifying in which attack it was used. Kiev forces attacked the nuclear power plant on several occasions this week. Fortunately, none of the attacks led to fires at the reactors and no casualties had been reported.
The UK supplied Kiev forces with hundreds of ground-launched Brimstone missiles following the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. The Brimstone missiles supplied to Kiev forces were of the first generation which utilizes an active millimetric-wave radar seeker and an inertial navigation system.
The maximum range of the ground-launched version of the Brimstone is unknown, but the air-launched version can reportedly hit targets more than 20 kilometers away. The missile is armed with a 6,3 kilograms tandem shaped charge warhead.
The mainstream media blamed recent attacks on the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant on the Russian military despite the presence of strong evidence confirming Kiev’s responsibility like the remains of the Brimstone missile. Russia describes actions of the Kiev regime as “nuclear terrorism”.
It’s worth noting that this was not the first time Kiev forces have attacked the nuclear power plant with weapons supplied by NATO states. In the last few months, the plant was attacked more than once with Polish Warmate loitering munitions. Kiev proudly took responsibility for the attacks and even shared footage of some of them.
