After blowing up the dam of the Kakhovka HPP, the Russian army may not stop there, but instead resort to further terrorist attacks on the territory of Ukraine.
The opinion about this was expressed by military expert, Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in reserve Roman Svitan on the air of Apostrophe TV.
In particular, he said that the occupiers are ready to blow up the Crimean Titan plant, which is completely mined, including tanks with acid and chlorine.
"Blowing up the dam of the Kakhovka HPP may pose a threat to the Zaporizhzhia NPP, but it is doubtful that the Russians will blow up the Zaporizhzhia NPP in order to shackle the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Of course, it makes no sense to predict the actions of Malacholnys from the General Staff of the Russian Federation, but the risks of such nuclear terrorism are too high for Moscow - both military-political, and purely economic and image," Svitan said.
The expert notes that Rosatom, which temporarily manages the ZNPP, builds power units in Turkey and Hungary by agreement.
"And what they can really and are ready to blow up now is the Crimean Titan plant in the north of Crimea. The plant has already been completely mined, including tanks with acid, chlorine and reagents. They recently started mining it, because they predicted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would force the Dnieper and enter Armyansk, they were ready to blow it up," Svitan said.
Recall that the Soviet army in August 1941 mined and blew up the DniproHES on the orders of Joseph Stalin to stop the Nazi occupiers. For the USSR army, such a step was beneficial. After the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric station on June 6, 2023, historian Alexander Alferov drew historical parallels to these tragic events.
