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.

Greenwald: No One Talks About Ending Ukraine War For Fear Of Being Labelled A ‘Traitor’

It’s a “dangerous delusion” to dismiss Putin’s nuclear threat

Journalist Glenn Greenwald noted Monday that talks to deescalate or end the conflict in Ukraine are virtually nonexistent because the legacy media and political elites have nurtured an atmosphere where to do so is considered ‘unpatriotic’.

Speaking to Tucker Carlson, Greenwald stated “There is a very real threat of a nuclear exchange, or even a direct confrontation with Russia and the United States. And over what? Over who governs and rules, not even Ukraine, but the Donbas, the eastern region in Ukraine, where a majority of people actually identify as ethnic Russians and want to be part of Russia.”

Greenwald continued, “Yet there’s almost no debate about whether we should be sending huge amounts of money there and risking the lives of American citizens through the possibility of a nuclear war.”

“Because everyone knows that the minute you step up and step out of line, there’s a hoard of people ready to call you unpatriotic, or a traitor, or an admirer of Vladimir Putin, as I know is being done with our very segment right this minute by all those Media Matter people and all those other people online,” the journalist continued.

“It’s a really repressive atmosphere and squashing a debate that we absolutely have to have,” Greenwald further urged.

Greenwald and Carlson also warned that it is foolish not to take Putin at his word that he is willing to deploy Russia’s nuclear arsenal.

“It seems to me, no matter how you feel about Putin, or Ukraine, or the war, or anything, the threat, the very real in-your-face threat of a nuclear exchange right now that they’re openly talking about would require the media to start telling people, hey, this is real, but nobody is. I wonder why that is,” Carlson posited.

Greenwald responded, “I think there’s almost this sense purposely cultivated to believe that the use of nuclear weapons really isn’t a realistic possibility.”

He continued, “It is madness to assume that for Russia, what is an existential war, if they actually start losing it, or NATO really starts escalating as we’ve been doing, that the chances of Vladimir Putin using nuclear weapons is zero. This is a dangerous delusion that I think a lot of people are operating under.”

Carlson also note that “if you ignore the possibility that your entire population could be killed, you are not fit for leadership, because you’re insane. And it feels like our leaders are right there. They’re insane.”

Watch:

Greenwald’s analysis dovetails with Tesla CEO Elon Musk being attacked, even by Ukrainian ‘diplomats’, for calling for peace talks:

    Former Pentagon Advisor Says US Likely Attacked Nord Stream Pipelines to Isolate Germany

    “You have to look at who are the state actors that have the capability to do this.”

    Published

    A former Pentagon advisor says the most likely culprits behind the Nord Stream pipeline blasts are the United States and Britain, and that the attack was carried out to prevent Germany from bailing on the war in Ukraine.

    Retired US Army colonel Douglas Macgregor made the comments during an appearance on the Judging Freedom podcast.

    Macgregor said a process of elimination rules out Germany, because they are dependent on Nord Stream for their energy security, while it also served no benefit for Russia to have sabotaged its own infrastructure.

    “Would the Russians destroy their own pipeline? 40 percent of Russian gross national product or gross domestic product consists of foreign currency that comes into the country to purchase natural gas, oil, coal and so forth. So the Russians did not do this. The notion that they did I think is absurd,” Macgregor said.

    Referring to Polish MEP Radoslaw Sikorski’s infamous deleted tweet in which he wrote, “Thank you, USA,” Macgregor noted, “Who else might be involved? Well the Poles apparently seem to be very enthusiastic about it.”

    However, citing reports that more than 500 kg of TNT had been detected in both explosions, the former Pentagon advisor suggested only the United States and British Royal Navy had the capability to pull off the attack.

    “Then you have to look at who are the state actors that have the capability to do this. And that means the Royal Navy, the United States Navy Special Operations,” said Macgregor.

    “I think that’s pretty clear. We know that thousands of pounds of TNT were used because these pipelines are enormously robust. You have several inches of concrete around various metal alloys to move the natural gas. So it’s not something that you could simply drop a grenade down at the end of a fish line and disrupt. That means it takes a certain amount of sophistication,” he added.

    Macgregor suggested that the motive behind the attacks was to prevent Germany from bailing on the Ukraine war after Berlin began “to give the impression that they were no longer going to go along with this proxy war in Ukraine.”

    “I’m hesitant to say ‘we know it must have been Washington’. I can’t say that because we just don’t know. But it’s very clear that we have foreclosed Berlin’s options. Berlin was drifting away from this alliance. [Chancellor] Olaf Scholz said ‘I’m not sending any more equipment, I won’t send any tanks’. Now he’s in a bind because the United States has simply robbed him of the option of bailing out. Who’s going to supply him gas and oil and coal and everything else if he bails out? Where does he turn now? And remember, the Germans, who are facing terrible consequences at home refuse to restart nuclear power plants,” the former official said.

    As we previously reported, the CIA warned Germany of potential attacks on gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea weeks before Nord Stream 1 and 2 were targeted.

    Both Joe Biden and Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland asserted that Nord Stream 2 wouldn’t be allowed to operate if Russia attacked Ukraine.

    “No Evidence” US Involved in Nord Stream Pipeline Attack Because Pentagon Says So

    Fox News reporter solves the mystery.

    Published

    on

    Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin has confirmed that the U.S. was not responsible for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline explosion, because the Pentagon told her so.

    Yes, really.

    Despite accusations flying that the United States could have been involved in the blasts that have reportedly could scupper the pipelines permanently, and without any investigation having taken place, Griffin’s crack journalism has solved the case.

    “There is no evidence or indication the US was involved in any way with the Nordstream 2 pipeline explosions,” Griffin tweeted. “My question at the Pentagon briefing today: Can you rule out that the U.S. was involved? Senior Military Official: ‘Yeah, we were absolutely not involved.’ ”

    Well, that’s that then, case closed.

    As Chris Menahan notes, the Fox News reporter has been guilty of brazenly amplifying false regime propaganda before.

    “Earlier this year, Griffin put out the debunked hoax story that Russia bombed the Babi Yair holocaust memorial in Ukraine.”

    The reporting was later debunked after an Israeli journalist visited the site and found it to be completely unscathed.

    Griffin also recycled the lie that Russia was using “mobile crematoriums” to “evaporate” war dead, when the supposed video proving it was taken from a 2013 YouTube video.

    “When news came out about US biolabs in Ukraine, Griffin also simply repeated Pentagon talking points to dismiss the story as a nothingburger,” writes Menahan.

    When Griffin was recently rewarded with a new multiyear contract, she stated that it “has been an honor to provide viewers with trusted reporting from the Pentagon and across the world on issues that are paramount to all of us – the security and safety of our fellow citizens and allies.”

    “Trusted reporting.”
