KYIV (Worthy News) – Ukrainian forces stepped up attacks against targets in the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula as Moscow threatened to disconnect Europe’s largest nuclear power plant amid fears of an atomic disaster.
Kyiv warned that Russia wants to disconnect power units supplying the Ukrainian electricity grid and is planning a “provocation.”
The statement came as Russian-annexed Crimea appeared to have come under further attack for the third time in ten days.
Explosions were heard overnight near Belbek airbase outside Sebastopol, reportedly used for strikes against Ukraine.
Russian authorities said a Ukrainian drone was shot down and claimed no damage had been done. However, it became clear Friday that Russia’s military on the Crimean peninsula faced ongoing attacks.
Attacks are also continuing in the north-eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, where at least 20 people were killed in strikes in recent days, according to Ukrainian authorities.
