Report: U.S. Coordinated Failed Ukrainian Assault On Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant

The Zelensky regime working together with the US risked triggering a nuclear meltdown last year by launching an assault on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in southeastern Ukraine using American HIMARS, The Times of London reports.

From The Times, "Ukraine's secret attempt to retake the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant":
In the dead of night last October a Ukrainian special forces team boarded a 40ft armoured patrol boat, taking up positions at its three heavy machineguns and Mk19 automatic grenade launcher.

They were among nearly 600 elite troops scattered along the north bank of the Dnipro River, which carves through Zaporizhzhia region. The teams boarded more than 30 vessels bristling with weapons, formidable gifts from friends in the West.

Their orders: to launch an assault to recapture the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant from the Russians on the opposite bank.

[...] As special forces speedboats crossed a stretch of river nearly three miles wide, precision Himars rockets provided by the US smashed into Russian positions on the riverbank.

"This is our artillery and Himars working. Here they are shelling us in the water, on the Dnipro River," the officer narrated as he showed video of the assault to The Times, explaining how his patrol boat had probed Russian defences on the bank for weaknesses.

Asked whether the US had provided targets for the Himars before the raid, a US defence source confirmed that "time-sensitive" intelligence was provided to Ukrainian special forces, although they declined to give specific details. "We do share information with them but they are responsible for the selection, prioritisation and ultimate decisions to engage threats," the source said.
When Russia initially seized control of the plant, Zelensky -- in a bid to con NATO into a wider war with Russia -- claimed Russia had intentionally shelled it with tanks and triggered a radiation leak that could destroy all of Europe.

Zelensky's claims were proven to be a lie as the International Atomic Energy Agency investigated the plant and found there was no radiation leak.

We now know Ukraine and the US risked triggering a nuclear meltdown themselves with their own failed attack on the plant.

In related news, the UK is now happily sending depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine to pollute the area for generations.
