#1 "Russia Blames Ukraine for Tomorrow's Nuclear Accident"

Spending a few days announcing "the other side" plans something makes a false flag operation rather transparent.

#2 Russia has controlled the facility since March. They have a bunch of their gear stashed there. Something of a Regional HQ. To think Russia is shooting/shelling their own camp/base/equipment/troops is ukr fan fiction. And further, it is difficult to call something a false flag when Zelensky telegraphs UKR military plans and strategy to target Russian soldiers at Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

“Every Russian soldier who... shoots using the plant as cover, must understand that he becomes a special target for our intelligence agents, for our special services, for our army.”

Transparent is debatable.

#3 "Russia Fires 53 Missiles At Nikopol, Ukraine Downs Orlan-10 Drone l Putin Asks Troops To Step Up Ops" Reactor is being shut down. Nikopol is Ukrainian firing location upon Nuclear reactor.

#4 So while the Russians whine about Ukrainian forces setting up in abandoned schools and apartment buildings, they set up in a nuclear power plant and whine about it.

I would have expected more vodka out of Russia, but whines seems to be a major export.

#5 Croon, autocrats' creatures, your credo!
"Drink deep of fermented potato,
Ukrainian grain,
And inherited pain
From your failures of will... and blame NATO!"

#6 Paranoid and woke-baiting aside, that's "will" as in "the petty little bourgeois triumph of saving and transmitting what's valuable, generation to generation, within families, unmolested by pirate, potentate, or holy state."

#7 Or, in Russia's case, the trifecta. ;-)
