Ukraine Claims Dubious Russian Attack on Nuclear Plant in Bid to Lobby For NATO No Fly Zone

IAEA fact checks false claim about radiation leak.

The Ukrainian government said they had detected “elevated levels of radiation” after claiming Russia deliberately attacked a nuclear plant, calling for NATO to impose a no fly zone, but IAEA officials later clarified that no leak had been detected.

The entire incident appears to possibly have been yet another contrived story given claims that the attack took place at a nearby location, along with assertions that the Ukrainians fired first.

During an “emotional” speech on Thursday night, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky claimed that Russian forces had deliberately attacked the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in the city of Energodar in an attempt to cause a Chernobyl-style “global catastrophe.”

“Right now, Russian tanks are firing upon nuclear units,” Zelensky said. “These are tanks equipped with thermal imagers. That is, they know where they are shooting, they have been preparing for this!”

“I appeal to all Ukrainians, to all Europeans. To all people who know the word ‘Chernobyl.’ Who know how many grief and casualties the explosion at the nuclear power plant caused. It was a global catastrophe. Hundreds of thousands of people struggled with its consequences. Tens of thousands of people were evacuated. Russia wants to do it again. And already repeats. But six times more!”

“Europeans! Wake up, please! Speak to your politicians! Russian troops are firing upon the nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the city of Energodar. There are six power units. Six! One power unit exploded in Chernobyl,” Zelensky said.

“The Russian military must be stopped immediately! Shout to your politicians. Ukraine has 15 nuclear units. If there is an explosion, it is the end of everything. The end of Europe. This is the evacuation of Europe. Only immediate European action can stop Russian troops. Do not allow the death of Europe from the catastrophe at the nuclear power plant!”

The Ukrainian government then claimed they had detected “elevated levels of radiation” around the plant and demanded a NATO no fly zone be imposed, something that would almost certainly cause World War III.

However, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the White House later confirmed that no nuclear leak had taken place.

In addition, according to Ukraine’s emergency service, the fire at the plant “was outside the station perimeter and one of the blocks at the station had been switched off.”

A video from the scene also appears to show that a Ukrainian soldier actually shot “what appears to be an RPG,” according to Clint Ehrlich.

He also pointed out that it was be pretty ludicrous for Russia to attack a nuclear plant when they are providing energy for the areas they occupy.

“Zelensky is a serial liar and a con man who is doing everything in his power to drag this war on and get as many Ukrainian civilians killed for propaganda purposes to try justify Western intervention,” remarked Chris Menahan.

The Ukrainian President doesn’t exactly have good form, having lied about what happened on Snake Island, as well as the ‘attack’ on a Holocaust memorial that never happened.

As we highlight in the video below, with there being so many massive war outrages that turn out to be completely false, it’s no longer possible to trust anyone.

You’d think this would be a time where ‘fact checkers’ would be needed more than ever, but they seem to have gone AWOL.

Video: Belarusian Tennis Star Calls Out Sports Reporters For “Dragging Players Into” Ukraine Conflict Talk

“I don’t know what’s the goal here that it’s continuously brought up.”

Belarusian tennis star Victoria Azarenka has called out sports reporters for continually asking players questions about the Russia/Ukraine conflict, noting “I don’t know what you guys want us to do about it.”

Azarenka was speaking during a press conference after a recent match at the Australian open, when she lost patience with journalists asking question after question about pro-Russia protests by some at the event, and accused the reporters of continuously “dragging players into” political issues.

“I don’t know what you guys want us to do about it,” Azarenka asserted, adding “Like talk about it? I don’t know what’s the goal here that it’s continuously brought up.”

The former world number one continued, “These incidents that, in my opinion, have nothing to do with players, but somehow you keep dragging players into it. So what’s the goal here?”

“I think you should ask yourself that question, not me,” she sternly added.

Azarenka also stated that whatever she says will be twisted by the reporters to suit their own narrative anyway, so why should she bother.

“Whatever the answer I’m going to give it to you right now, it’s going to be turned whichever way you want to turn it to,” the tennis star urged, adding “So does it bother me? What bothers me is there’s real things that’s going on in the world. And I don’t know. Are you a politician? Are you? Are you covering politics?” she rhetorically asked the sports reporter.

“I’m an athlete,” Azarenka further proclaimed, adding “and you’re asking me about things that maybe somebody says are in my control, but I don’t believe that. So I don’t know what you want me to answer. And if it’s a provocative question, then, you know, you can spin the story however you want.”

“Obviously it’s a topic you want to continue to bring up and up and up again,” Azarenka charged, telling the reporters “I don’t know what you want me to say.”

Watch:

Azarenka is correct, there is a sustained effort by reporters, even non-politics reporters to involve sports personalities in narratives centred around the ‘current thing’ they obsessively use to sell newspapers and garner clicks.

Novak Djokovic has been repeatedly subject to such treatment, with tennis officials also guilty of dragging politics into the sport.

    Former UK Defense Minister Says NATO May Need To Send Ground Forces To Ukraine

    Published

    The “domino theory” was once used to great effect in order to manipulate the American public into supporting the Vietnam War, but will the same narrative work to get the west to support World War III with Russia? 

    Former UK Defense Minister Sir Gerald Howarth seems to think so as he uses this exact claim to justify NATO boots on the ground in Ukraine. 

    It should be noted that a large percentage of the American populace and most of Europe have no interest whatsoever in engaging with Russia and possibly its allies in all out war, but the establishment appears intent on forcing the issue anyway.  The delivery of NATO tanks and the possibility of longer range missiles will no doubt trigger a wider response from Russia, which will then be used by NATO as a reason to escalate further. 

    At the very least, Howarth does admit what many in the alternative media have been saying for some time – That Ukraine’s efforts have ground to a halt without further support from NATO troops.  The deliveries of money and weapons are nothing more than a stop-gap; wars are won by men. 

    The former minister suggests that Ukraine is essentially too big to fail and that NATO cannot allow Russia to prevail in the region, otherwise they will be emboldened to strike other nearby nations.  There is zero evidence to support this argument, but it is clear that NATO talking heads are desperate to drum up some kind of public fervor. 

    Are western citizens willing to fight and die for Ukraine?  It’s highly unlikely.
