The Russians fired at the Slavyanskaya TPP: a fire broke out at the station
Russians regularly shell Ukrainian power grids and power plants. It became known that the invaders hit a thermal power plant in the city of Slavyansk.
This morning, September 17, the invaders fired at the Slavyansk thermal power plant. Pavel Kirilenko, head of the Donetsk Police Department, announced this on his page in a telegram.
Consequences of the strike
Kirilenko wrote that a fire broke out as a result of the strike. Equipment at the station was also damaged. Now rescuers are working on the spot, they are trying to curb the flame and localize it.
In addition, the head of the OVA noted that due to the attack of the Slavyanskaya TPP in the city of Nikolaev, there were interruptions in water supply and the invaders understand what they are doing.< /p>
Occupiers are deliberately targeting the infrastructure of the region, trying to inflict as much damage as possible, primarily on the civilian population, – wrote Pavel Kirilenko.
Why do Russians target critical infrastructure
Putin's soldiers continue to suffer defeat at the front. They have no choice but to retreat and attack enterprises that serve the civilian population.
Putin himself does not hide his intentions to openly fight against civilians. The Institute for the Study of War analyzed his speech at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and came to this conclusion.
