Attack on the giant dam in Ukraine – Russia escalates the war – NRK Urix – Foreign news and documentaries

Images from the so-called Dnipro Hydroelectric Power Station in Zaporizhia show that the Russian attack on the station was very large-scale.

There is a fire in the power station located below the dam itself, and there are also fires on the road that passes above the giant station.

The trolleybus caught fire, and it is not clear whether those inside the bus got out in time.

There must be no immediate danger of the dam itself bursting.

Fear of nuclear power plants

Power supplies to the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant will also be affected. One of the two electricity cables leading to the power station was cut.

The power plant is located a little in Russian-occupied territory southwest of the city of Zaporizhia.

– The situation is very serious, and we risk that it may lead to an emergency, says the Ukrainian nuclear energy company Energoatom.

If the last power line is cut, and electricity is cut off from the power plant, the company fears for the safety of the power plant.

– The enemy is now carrying out the largest attack against Ukrainian energy supplies in recent times, according to Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Haloshenko, according to Agence France-Presse.

Kremlin – We are at war

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Friday morning that Russia is now fighting a war in Ukraine.

Previously, Russian authorities described the large-scale attack that began on February 24, 2022, as a special operation.

The reason may be that Ukraine has recently increasingly attacked targets inside Russia.

Russian volunteers who fought on the side of Ukraine also entered Belgorod and Kursk Oblast in southwestern Russia.

Zelensky – targeted attack

The Ukrainian air force says it has shot down 92 of 151 missiles and drones launched in Russia's intensified offensive on Ukraine.

According to Reuters, at least two people were killed and 14 others were injured in the attack.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky described the bombing that occurred on Friday night as targeted.

The world sees the targets of Russian terrorists clearly and distinctly: power plants, power lines, dams, ordinary residential buildings, and even an electric bus, he writes on the messaging service “Telegram.”

According to a letter from the president's office, more than a million Ukrainians were without electricity after the attack that occurred on Friday evening, Reuters reported.
