TheVoiceOfJoyce There is heavy fighting in the east and south of Ukraine. More territory is being taken by the Ukrainians. They’ve asked for cluster bombs and should get them. I’m sure many areas are mined and booby trapped. The Zaporizhizhia Nuclear Power Plant has mines on the top of the power sources. Russia has no rules.

The Ukraine government accused Russia on Tuesday of planning a “provocation” at the Moscow-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, while Russia claimed that Kyiv was planning to “attack” the facility. Fears over the safety risks for the nuclear plant, Europe’s largest, have been constant throughout Russia’s invasion, but increased in early June after the destruction of the Kakhovka dam, the source of cooling water for its reactors. Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Wednesday that “objects resembling explosives” had been placed on the roof of several power units “perhaps to simulate an attack”. He added: “The world sees – can’t but see – that the only source of danger to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is Russia and no one else.”

Russia said on Wednesday that one person was killed and another 41 injured, including two children, by Ukrainian fire in the east Ukraine town of Makiivka, which is occupied by Russian forces.

“Forty-one people have been injured due to the shelling, including two children. One person has died from their wounds,” Vladislav Klyucharov, the Russian-appointed head of the city’s administration said on Russia’s state-run broadcaster Rossiya-24, according to AFP.

Earlier the Russian-installed leader of Donetsk, Denis Pushilin, said Ukrainian forces had launched “fierce attacks” on residential areas and a hospital complex in the city.
