Ukraine and West prepare media space for their potential false flag attack on Zaporozhye NPP

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Monday June 26, 2023 23:34author by 1 of Indy Report this post to the editors

The NATO proxy war in Ukraine is not going well and the latest incarnation of it, in the form of the counter offensive has failed. The Ukrainian army is badly depleted and all the best troops long used up. The NeoCons who are in power and the real force behind NATO are desperate since the decades long plot to destroy Russia via Ukraine is looking like a complete failure and is their last chance to remain the dominant power. What they don't realize is their uni polar world is already gone.


But they are not about to give up easily and it has been long predicted they would try something stupid like a nuclear false flag incident where they would blame Russia on blowing up the huge Zaporozhye NPP nuclear plant and causing widespread radioactivity and then this could be a pretext for a state of emergency and an excuse for NATO to get involved directly in the war. This would be easily sold to the public but would be a massive and dangerous escalation.


Ovr at the Simplicius The Thinker blog, he takes up the story below

lindsey_graham-blumenthal_resolution_in_prep_for_nuke_false_flag.jpg

To start Simplicius outlines the prep work by the Ukrainians and Western media to prepare the ground for the public to accept the notion of a nuclear plant attack


The situation can only be considered urgent as Ukraine has now made their full intentions crystal clear. If before we suspected with high confidence, now it is plain fact. They intend to destroy the ZNPP plant as a last ditch attempt to ‘activate NATO’ by blaming Russia.


A completely coordinated campaign over the last few days has affirmed this. Not only was Budanov’s maiden speech after reappearing from his Kalibrated cranial trepanation centered on Russia’s alleged ‘mining of the ZNPP’ basement, but now several new instances of highly coordinated messaging have been released by Ukraine and its Western controllers


In fact, since that video from days ago, he’s released a new, even more urgently threatening message:



Plan to blow up Zaporizhahia Nuclear Power Plant approved, situation has never been so severe before -Chief of Defence Intellience


?????? “The 4th and 6th power units of the Zaporozhye NPP were mined by Russia,” – Kyrylo Budanov


"The situation has never been as serious as it is now.


The plan of the terrorist attack at the ZNPP has been fully developed and approved. To accelerate the catastrophe, they can use technical means," Budanov stated



Now, Zelensky has made two separate videos where he plainly states that Russia is preparing a massive terrorist attack at the ZNPP plant “just like they did at the Kakhovka dam”. He goes on to sternly warn the world and charge them with the responsibility to act with utmost severity in response to this upcoming Russian attack. He specifically invokes the threat of radiation crossing the borders into other NATO countries for obvious effect.


See the two videos at https://simplicius76.substack.com/p/nuclear-falseflag-on-zaporozhye-npp


And a day later, in coordinated fashion, Lindsay Graham threatened Russia with massive NATO retaliation should Russia use any type of “nuclear” aggravation:


He even put forth a new resolution which specifically quotes the ‘destruction of a nuclear facility’ and ‘dispersing radioactive contaminants’ as an attack on NATO itself:


Obviously, this is quite ironic and hypocritical given that it was the U.S. and UK that just announced the supply of radioactive DU ammunition, which does exactly what Graham here describes in spreading radioactive contaminants.



What can one say, the West’s leaders are clearly psychopathic. They have already destroyed a major pipeline in the Nordstream in an obvious terrorist attack and now they are planning one on Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.


Ukrainian presidential advisor Podolyak added to the orchestrated release with his own statement, slowly conditioning the narrative that Russia is losing its grip on Energodar and will blow the plant to “stop the Ukrainian counter-offensive”.


Intrinsic to his statement is the clear threat to Europe, contributing to the theory that this ploy is in fact a part of Ukraine’s nuclear blackmail.


By the way, it should be mentioned that the IAEA reportedly released a statement denying Budanov’s claims, so that will be interesting to watch. Despite the agency’s corruption perhaps they’re not entirely suicidal and psychopathic:


Simplicius then outlines potential scenarios for the Ukrainian:



But, can they really do it? Firstly, a potential ZNPP attack invokes images of Chernobyl, vast exclusion zones and thousands poisoned and dead. But there are very large differences.


Firstly, Chernobyl exploded with an unprecedented force after its pressure vessel reached immense pressures due to a concatenation of highly improbable events. The explosion was so powerful as to generate discussion amongst experts to this day whether the reactor had actually gone ‘critical’—meaning, fission had actually occurred thereby creating a mini nuclear explosion at the reactor.


My point is that such an explosion is hardly possible at the ZNPP. For one: the power plant, as I understand it, is in some form of cold shutdown. This means that the rods have been retracted and the danger of any sort of mass catastrophe of this sort is very low. You’re not going to recreate the power of the Chernobyl blast with manmade means. I don’t know how many tons of TNT you’d have to put there, but it would be a lot—and where would you put them? Underneath the containment vessel itself? A lot of the prospects don’t make much sense.


Much of the disaster and ensuing contamination from the Chernobyl incident was due to the power of the explosion and how far it sent all the radioactive pieces of the core. There were chunks of Uranium being found tens of kilometers or more, and the radioactive dust, etc. had plumed everywhere. This would be extremely difficult to achieve at the ZNPP, particularly with any “ordinary” strike. Even a severe cruise missile strike on the reactor itself, as an example, would not achieve anything even remotely resembling the Chernobyl incident, and in fact would only create a ‘localized’ disaster.


With that said, we should not ignore the fact that it doesn’t matter how bad the disaster actually is, the West will ‘manufacture’ the scale which suits them. So even if a minor blast were to occur, with a minor release of radiation, the West and its corrupt lapdog agencies will manufacture whatever false ‘data’ is necessary to push the agenda that, for instance, ‘massive plumes of radiation have gone into Poland/Europe/NATO’, etc.


Thus, one idea for the falseflag is that it doesn’t actually need to create the catastrophe itself, but rather the appearance of one.


Next, how would Ukraine conceivably do this? What precise plan or storyline could they concoct for the falseflag? Well, I believe Budanov himself already gave up the goods on this one in his ‘return’ speech. After stating that Russia mined the ZNPP, he specifically implied that Russia may blow it while retreating “just as they did to the Kakhovka last year”—referencing the destruction of the roadway (which we still don’t know who was actually responsible for) on the dam last November.


So one possible angle is that as Ukrainian forces make an attack to seize the plant, the plant could somehow be blown via strikes which would be blamed on Russian forces having mined and sabotaged it so that it doesn’t fall into Ukrainian hands.
