Russian troops deliver unknown cargo to Zaporizhzhia NPP, sources say power plant is mined (video)​




The Insider's sources at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Energodar, which has been occupied by Russia since March, report suspicious activity of Russian soldiers at the plant. The publication also has video of Russian military trucks pulling onto the plant site and unloading cargoes.

According to a source, a convoy of military trucks arrived at the plant on August 2. The trucks stopped between energy blocks 1 and 2, and after a while part of the convoy started entering the turbine room of energy block 1 through the cargo gate. According to the source, the turbine room has been mined.

According to another source, there are about 500 Russian soldiers and military equipment at the NPP site, including APCs, anti-aircraft guns and radiochemical reconnaissance equipment, and the area around the plant has been mined by Russian troops. According to the source, there are GRAD batteries near the village of Vodyanoye, which is closest to the NPP, and Russian soldiers store mines and ammunition in the immediate vicinity of the energy blocks, under trestles, with some of the ammunition sored inside the energy block. The second source doesn't know whether the energy block has been mined or is simply used for storing explosives.

According to the source, Major General Aleksei Dombrovsky was in charge of the seizure of the plant, whereafter Major General Valery Vasilyev was put in charge of the power plant.

Both sources consider today's shelling of the plant a staged provocation. According to an employee working at one of the energy blocks, as a result of today's shelling, the backup power supply went offline throughout the plant, triggering two safety systems at Energy Block 3 which switched on diesels power generators (which means that the energy block's safety system went offline).

An episode of the battle in Ukraine with the use of the Bumblebee-M rocket-propelled infantry flamethrower has been published. A platoon of flamethrowers was given the task of suppressing strongholds of the Ukrainian army with fire and providing a path for the advancement of armored vehicles of the Russian troops. Flamethrowers moved as close as possible to the strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and entered into battle with the Ukrainian army. After that, they retreated to positions to further cover the advance of Russian units in armored vehicles.

Ukrainian T-72M tanks, delivered earlier from Europe, appeared at the front. According to media reports, the Ukrainian army is gathering a strike force for a counteroffensive, the direction of the strike is still unknown.

How can you believe in the nonsense that Russia is shelling itself, at what age of people is this calculated

Why military aid to Ukraine doesn't always get to the front lines: "Like 30% of it reaches its final destination"​



In a war being fought largely in World War II era trenches, with Soviet ammunition, the vast influx of modern NATO weapons and military supplies from the West into Ukraine has proven to be among the largest determinants of whether territory is lost, or gained, along Ukraine's embattled border region with Russia.

The bulk of these weapons and military supplies make their way to the border of Poland, where U.S. and NATO allies quickly ferry it across the border and into the hands of Ukrainian officials. That's where U.S. oversight ends.


"All of this stuff goes across the border, and then something happens, kind of like 30% of it reaches its final destination," said Jonas Ohman, founder and CEO of Blue-Yellow, a Lithuania-based organization that has been meeting with and supplying frontline units with military aid in Ukraine since the start of the conflict with Russia-backed separatists in 2014.

"30-40%, that's my estimation," he said in April of this year.

The United States has committed over $23 billion in military aid to Ukraine since the start of the war at the end of February, according to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, which has been tracking global commitments of aid to Ukraine. The United Kingdom has committed $3.7 billion, Germany $1.4 billion, and Poland $1.8 billion, with multiple other countries following suit.

A combination of Ukraine's constantly shifting front lines with its largely volunteer and paramilitary forces has made delivery of the military aid difficult for those attempting to navigate the dangerous supply lines to their destination. Some have raised concerns about weapons falling into Ukraine's black market, which has thrived on corruption since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ohman relies largely on unofficial channels to deliver his supplies, which can include anything from night-vision scopes and radios to Kevlar vests, ballistic helmets and modern drones, which have proven to be essential eyes in the sky for breaking through stalemates on the battlefield. His group's status as an NGO does not permit him to deliver "lethal weapons."

"There are like power lords, oligarchs, political players," Ohman said, describing the corruption and bureaucracy he has to work around. "The system itself, it's like, 'We are the armed forces of Ukraine. If security forces want it, well, the Americans gave it to us.' It's kind of like power games all day long, and so eventually people need the stuff, and they go to us."

Andy Millburn is a retired U.S. Marine colonel who served in Iraq and Somalia and recently founded the Mozart Group, a company dedicated to training frontline Ukrainian soldiers. He traveled to Ukraine after the Russian invasion and set up a base in the capital Kyiv.

"If you provide supplies, or a logistics pipeline, there has got to be some organization to it, right? If the ability to which you're willing to be involved in that stops at the Ukrainian border, the surprise isn't that, oh, all this stuff isn't getting to where it needs to go — the surprise is that people actually expected it to," said Millburn.

"If United States' policy is to support Ukraine in the defense of its country against the Russian Federation, you can't go halfway with that. You can't create artificial lines. I understand that means that U.S. troops are not fighting Russians. I understand even U.S. troops are not crossing the border. But why not at least put people in place to supervise the country? They can be civilians to ensure that the right things are happening," he said.

In July, Ambassador Bonnie Denise Jenkins, Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security at the U.S. State Department, said "the potential for illicit diversion of weapons is among a host of political-military and human rights considerations."

But she added, "We are confident in the Ukrainian Government's commitment to appropriately safeguard and account for the U.S.-origin defense equipment."


Ukraine has created a temporary special commission to track the flow of weapons inside the country. But still, weapons experts say they have seen situations like this before.

"Every country and every situation is very different, but certainly if I look back, Iraq is another country where there have been cyclical deliveries. We saw a lot of weapons come in 2003 with the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and then 2014 happened when ISIS took over large parts of the country and took over large stocks of weapons that had been meant for Iraqi forces," said Donatella Rovera, a senior crisis adviser for Amnesty International who has been monitoring human rights violations in Ukraine.

"More recently, we saw the same situation occur in Afghanistan," she said of the U.S. withdrawal and Taliban takeover of the country. "Oversight mechanisms should be in place to avoid that."

"That's one of the reasons we have to win the war," said Ohman. "If we lose the war, if we have this kind of gray zone, semi-failed state scenario or something like that. If you do this — you funnel lots of lethal resources into a place and you lose — then you will have to face the consequences."

Our military friends said that they had not heard that this anti-radiation missile was a land-based version. They also emphasized that marking for pre-mission planning and guidance systems should be done from different platforms. If the US actually used anti-radiation missiles in Ukraine, then NATO was covertly involved in the Ukrainian war (possibly with warplanes).

It is russian mega super duper T -90 tank ..............
All normal people know what it is mean russian junk armor

putin fans are adamant the russian military industry is producing weapons that are vastly superior to NATO's...
Yet somehow the russian industry hasn't managed to come up with anything even remotely as efficient and deadly as the Javelin.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Russian sappers conducting demining in Ukraine collected a large number of mines and grenades. All this was destroyed in one explosion. The explosion in power is equal to the explosion of 3 tons of explosives in TNT equivalent.


Donetsk militia spoke about the difficult assault on the village of Peski. The Ukrainian army created three lines of powerful defense and even dug underground passages between the basements of houses, this is a small part of what they had to face during the battles in the village. Details of the assault in the video. (Subtitles)
