Russian Spy Service Says HIMARS And Other Weapons Are Being Used At Nuclear Power Stations In Ukraine

Russia’s foreign intelligence service (SVR) said that Ukraine was storing arms from the West at nuclear power plants all over the country.

It didn’t show any proof, so Reuters couldn’t check the claims.

In a statement, the SVR said that the US had sent HIMARS rocket launchers, air defence systems, and artillery ammunition to the nuclear power station in Rivne, which is in the northwest of Ukraine.

It said, “The Ukrainian military stores weapons and ammunition from the West on the grounds of nuclear power plants.” It also said that a shipment of weapons to the Rivne power plant had happened in the last week of December.

Since the conflict started, everyone has been paying attention to the many nuclear power plants in Ukraine.

Russian forces took over the defunct Chornobyl nuclear power plant less than 48 hours after the invasion. They also took over the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, which was the largest in Europe, early in the war.

Both Kiev and Moscow have said that the other has fired shells at Zaporizhzhia, and Ukraine says that Russia is using the area as a weapons depot.

The UN group in charge of keeping an eye on nuclear issues is very worried about the attacks near the plant, which could lead to a nuclear disaster.
