Kiev to shell nuclear plant during Guterres' visit - Russia

Russian Defence Ministry warned on Thursday that Kiev is planning provocations at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant on August 19 after which it will accuse Moscow of the caused damage. The move is expected to happen during the long-awaited visit of the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who will come to Ukraine today, on Thursday, and meet the Ukrainian and Turkish leaders.

On the following day, August 19, Guterres will visit the Odessa port, when, according to Russia, Kiev will shell the plant from Nikopol. The Ukrainian army will later carry out a set of measures to demonstrate the alleged elimination of the consequences, the ministry noted.

The largest nuclear plant in Europe has been widely discussed as both Moscow and Kiev accuse the other side of causing a serious threat to the region's and Europe's security.
