Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 1. September 2022

Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine haben internationale Inspektoren das russisch besetzte Kernkraftwerk Saporischja erreicht. Nach britischer Einschätzung kommen den ukrainischen Streitkräften bei ihrem Vorrücken im Süden die – von den USA gelieferten – Raketen zur Bekämpfung von Radarstellungen besonders zugute. Der Sammler am 1. September 2022:

• Das Inspektorenteams der Internationalen Atomenergieagentur (IAEA) ist am umkämpften ukrainischen Atomkraftwerk Saporischja angekommen. Das meldete die Organisation am (heutigen) Donnerstag gegen 14.00 Uhr MESZ via Twitter:

Zuvor hatte der ukrainische Energieminister German Galushchenko die Befürchtung geäußert, Russland versuche die Arbeit des IAEA-Teams zu manipulieren und den Zugang zu Teilen der Anlage zu beschränken:

The russian side, resorting to manipulations, may prevent the IAEA mission from visiting key facilities to be inspected on the territory of the occupied ZNPP.
This position was expressed by the Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko on air of the national telethon.
The Minister noted that the Ukrainian side had discussed with the representatives of the mission the relevant list of objects, and these proposals almost completely coincided with the assessments of IAEA experts.
„The key thing is to make the russians allow access to those objects that the mission aims to inspect. We understand that there can be manipulations: show some picture or make a route, where in fact the mission simply will not be able to see what is happening. And then, of course, it can cast doubt on the results,“ he said.

Ergänzung: Zum Briefing des russischen Verteidigungsministeriums (s.u.) gehörte auch ein gesonderter Teil zum Thema Saporischja, mit dem Vorwurf, die Ukraine versuche das Eintreffen der UN-Inspektoren zu verhindern:

On the morning of September 1, the Kiev regime attempted a major provocation to disrupt the arrival of IAEA expert working group at Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
At 6:20 a.m., seven fast-moving motorboats landed on the coast of Kakhovskoye reservoir, three kilometres northeast of Zaporozhye NPP, with two sabotage groups of up to 60 people in total.
The sabotage groups were detected and blocked in the drop-off area by Russian National Guard units guarding the territory of Zaporozhye NPP.
A unit of the Russian Armed Forces and helicopters of the army aviation were transfered to reinforce Russian Guard troops in order to suppress an attempt to enter the nuclear power plant and destroy Ukrainian saboteurs.
The destruction of the Ukrainian sabotage group is currently being completed.
At about 7:00 a.m., units of the Russian Armed Forces prevented another attempted landing to seize a nuclear power plant.
A few kilometres from Zaporozhye NPP near Vodyanoye, an attempt was made to land a tactical airborne assault by AFU two self-propelled barges from Nikopol. Two self-propelled barges carrying tactical airborne assault of AFU are sunk as a result of the Russian Armed Forces‘ shelling.
As of 8:00 a.m., the Kiev regime has blocked the passage of IAEA expert mission from controlled territory to Zaporozhye NPP.
Ukrainian artillery is shelling the territory of Zaporozhye NPP, the meeting place of IAEA mission with Russian specialists near Vasil’evka, as well as the route of their movement to Energodar. Four shells exploded 400 metres from the 1st unit of Zaporozhye NPP.
Despite attempts by the Kiev regime to disrupt the visit of IAEA expert group to Zaporozhye NPP, the Russian side confirms its readiness to receive them with full security of further operations.
The situation around the nuclear power plant is difficult but remains under full control.

• Das britische Intel Update:

Over 30-31 August 2022, Ukrainian Armed Forces continued offensive operations in southern Ukraine, supported by intensive long-range strikes against Russian command and logistics locations across the occupied zone.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence also released video footage of Ukrainian aircraft operating high speed anti-radiation missiles (HARMs). Russian has previously claimed that it has recovered fragments of these types of weapons, which are designed to locate and destroy radars.
Russia prioritises strong ground-based air defences – the radar coverage which enables this is a critical capability in its Ukraine operation.
A substantial, sustained degradation of Russia’s radars with HARMs would be a major set-back to Russia’s already troubled situational awareness.
