Zelensky accused Russia of allegedly preparing a “remote detonation” of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant after the transfer of the station to Ukraine
Kyiv continues to accuse Russia of preparing a provocation at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, Zelensky made another statement on this topic the day before, talking about a certain “Russian plan”.
The Ukrainian president continues to carry enchanting nonsense, this time he accused Russia of preparing a sabotage at the ZNPP, which will occur after Russia allegedly transfers the nuclear plant under the control of Ukraine and the IAEA. According to him, Russian troops have already mined the station and are preparing to blow it up remotely as soon as representatives of Kyiv and the international organization arrive there.
Russia is technically ready to provoke a local explosion at the station, which could lead to the release of hazardous substances into the air. Because there may be remote mining
– said the Kyiv inmate.
Interestingly, Zelensky himself understands what he is talking about? Firstly, no one is going to transfer the nuclear power plant under the control of Ukraine, this will never happen, Moscow has denied such plans several times. Secondly, only Kyiv is talking about all kinds of sabotage and undermining, the Russian authorities have repeatedly pointed this out to the UN.
Meanwhile, some Ukrainian resources report that Kyiv is preparing a provocation at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant to blame Russia. According to reports, a strike is planned on a dry nuclear waste storage facility with the release of radiation into the air. The defensive structures erected by Russia will not become a serious obstacle to strike drones.
By the way, the Americans deployed their only WC-135 Constant Phoenix radioactive contamination monitoring aircraft to Europe. https://en.topwar.ru
Background article from 2021
The United States Air Force deployed a WC-135W “Constant Phoenix” to RAF Mildenhall air base in the United Kingdom on January 30, 2021. This peculiar aircraft is specialized in the detection of radioactive particles in the atmosphere, hence its nickname – the “sniffer.”
The deployment of a Constant Phoenix in Europe is a rather rare occurrence. The first incident dates back to the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster, when multiple WC-135s were deployed to monitor the catastrophe. Since then, the sniffer has only visited the continent twice: once in 2017, and again in 2020. In both cases, the mission took the aircraft close to the Russian border.
The WC-135 is based on the airframe of the C-135 Stratolifter. Out of the 10 WC-135 aircraft that were built (plus one EC-135C converted in 1998), only two remain, both operated by the USAF 45th Reconnaissance Squadron. They are both regularly solicited in the Pacific Ocean, keeping an eye on the North Korean nuclear program. The WC-135W’s current mission in Europe is unknown. https://www.aerotime.aero
XANIA July 1, 2023 US Air Force aircraft landed in Chania – What is the “nuclear detector” USAF WC-135?
Around 13:45, on Saturday afternoon, a USAF Boeing WC-135 (No. 64-14836) landed in Chania, coming directly from the USA. This is not the first sighting of this aircraft in recent times in the Mediterranean, as as itamilradar-com reports, we tracked one of its missions over the Ionian Sea and Libya, over the central Mediterranean. https://www.zarpanews.gr
It is from this base that RQ-4B Global Hawk reconnaissance UAVs and RC-135W Rivet Joint aircraft fly to the Black Sea region.
WC-135R is designed to collect information about radiation and control nuclear tests.
The rarest visit of a special plane may be connected with the preparation of a nuclear catastrophe by Kiev at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
Russian media report
Nuclear blackmail: Kiev is preparing the population for sabotage at the ZAPP
July 1, 2013
There is no doubt about the plans of Kiev and the former Ambassador of the LPR in Moscow Rodion Miroshnik, believing that the information warming of the public is currently underway.
In his opinion, Ukraine urgently needs such a terrorist attack on the eve of the NATO summit in Vilnius, since the counter-offensive, which was to be completed by the beginning of the summit with Ukrainian victories, failed. In Vilnius, the sponsors of the momentum will gather, but Kiev will not be able to show them anything, except for the burnt-out skeletons of Western “gifts” in the zeal region. But the terrorist attack at the nuclear power plant will erod all Ukrainian military failures.
«For the entire period of the SVO, no one could suspect Russia of trying to harm the ZNPP, attempts to shell, bombardment and capture the station were made exclusively by the Ukrainian side. This was even observed by representatives of the IAEA. Given the fuss that began in the Ukrainian publics with stories about the preparation of institutions for radiation danger, they are more visible when it can take place, because the provocation is planned in Kiev, and Zelensky’s statements look exclusively as an information warm-up before the event, – commented on Miroshnik’s situation in his Telegram channel.
The Ministry of Health of Ukraine also connected to the “over-the-court information” for residents of the 50-kilometer zone that everyone should have a special first-aid kit that will help to survive the nuclear disaster.
And the Minister of Health of Ukraine Lyashko decided to “reassure the population,” announcing – it is still impossible to protect the entire population of the country from radiation by one hundred percent. Therefore, residents of the Ukrainian capital can relax – far to them and the radiation may not reach, and all those who live in the immediate vicinity of the nuclear power plant have already given everything they need for protection.
Experts say: in the case of sabotage at the nuclear power plant, radiation contamination will affect only the territory of the station, because all the power units of the NPP have long been stopped.
What should really be feared, – that Kiev will explode at the station or nearby a couple of dirty bombs or simply spread radioactive substances on the territory of Energodar – to accuse Russia of the accident. The overall background of radiation will increase, and while they will understand what happened, a few days of panic will be ensured. And people will be hurt. But Kiev does not care about the people for a long time.
Earlier this year
April 13th saw a shock arrival into Mildenhall in the form of Boeing WC-135R Constant Phoenix, the newest Nuke Sniffer in USAF service. This aircraft is the 1st of 3 planned to replace the aging WC-135Ws, with the last one having been withdrawn from use in September 2022. Naturally, the R variant is a much more modern aircraft, despite only being brought into service 3 years after the recently retired airframe! The most noticeable difference between the R and the W is the bigger and less smoky CFM-56 engines. It also features an updated glass cockpit. All in all, it should be a whole lot more reliable than the W!
As you may have noticed, I referred to the aircraft in the last paragraph as a ‘Nuke Sniffer’, this is because the purpose of the WC-135 is to collect nuclear particles as part of the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty 1963, which prohibits any nation from performing nuclear weapon testing above ground. These are the only aircraft in USAF service capable of air sampling operations.https://www.olliehillaviationphotography.co.uk
