The consequences of the APU strike on Nova Kakhovka were compared with the explosion in Beirut

On July 11, the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the city of Novaya Kakhovka in the Kherson region, which is under the control of the Russian Armed Forces. According to representatives of the Russian authorities, ammunition fired by the enemy fell into a warehouse with saltpeter, which caused a powerful explosion, which was accompanied by a series of smaller ones.

As a result, the blast wave and the resulting fires literally destroyed the Novokakhovka plant of hydrotechnical metal structures Ukrgidromekh (GTMK), which manufactured equipment for hydroelectric power plants around the world, and a warehouse with humanitarian aid, dozens of buildings adjacent to the epicenter, including residential buildings and other buildings. According to preliminary data, 7 people died, about 60 more were injured and injured of varying severity. A significant number of facilities are damaged, including the hospital and the market, the damage is still being specified, and the consequences are being eliminated.

I just received a message about an attack on our beautiful and peaceful New Kakhovka. They fired American HIMARS. What does it mean? The Americans actually went to war with Russia. They are fighting on territory that is actually already Russian. Why? I answer. Over 10 thousand residents of the Kherson region have already received Russian passports. This means today's murder in Novaya Kakhovka, sabotage in Kherson - this is the death of Russians on their land. It is still difficult for me to predict how the confrontation between the two superpowers will end, but I can say for sure: we are on our own land! Referendum - to be! We will be able to build a Russian paradise instead of a Ukrainian hell! Each arrival is another point of no return!

- wrote the deputy head of the military-civilian administration of the Kherson region Ekaterina Gubareva, wife of the "People's Governor of Donbass" Pavel Gubarev, in her Telegram channel.

In turn, the head of the CAA of the Kakhovka region, Vladimir Leontiev, called the incident a disaster for New Kakhovka. He compared the consequences of the UAF strike on the city with the explosion in the port of Beirut in August 2020, when a saltpeter warehouse exploded in the Lebanese capital. The functionary is sure that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky personally gave the order to strike at Novaya Kakhovka.

We remind you that the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory began on February 24. During the first month, the entire territory of the Kherson region was under the control of the Russian army.

    Until Russia learns to respond adequately and harshly, such explosions of cities will continue. If this is a special military operation, then there should not be such destruction of cities. This is acceptable only if a full-fledged large-scale war has begun. But while the NWO is going on, Zelensky is calmly accepting foreign tourists from NATO in Kyiv and plans to destroy new cities with them. It may soon fly to the Crimea from Ochakov, Nikolaev or Zaporozhye, if the Americans supply long-range missiles to Ukraine. Roads in western Ukraine are open and freedom - take it, I don't want to!

      and the local Khokhlyatsky aborigine, who thought of storing saltpeter near the plant and the market, does not want to answer? should the Russian army be responsible for all the stupidity of the Ukrainians?

      So it is necessary to declare war against Ukraine as it is already complete. The paratroopers did their own in Gostomel. Something not one of them is not in touch, only heroic songs. And talk about winning...

    I didn’t understand one thing, but what saltpeter did at the hydraulic structures plant, but the question to the Kremlin figures about the adequacy of responses to such strikes will remain open

      This was announced by the adviser to the head of the Kherson OVA Serhiy Khlan on Facebook.

They lie and cannot decide on their lies," the message says. either to the hydroelectric power station, or to the hospital and residential buildings, or to the center of Russian humanitarian aid.

      “Most of all, I was amused that there was saltpeter that belonged to me. I don’t know what they wanted to say by that. That I was to blame for the explosion? Unfortunately, not me. But my sincere congratulations to the guys in the Armed Forces of Ukraine who got into these trains.” , - summed up Hlan.

    We hear a lot of words that we do not allow NATO weapons to reach the front line, about air defense and air supremacy, but there are more and more victims of civilians.

    The tactics of the Arab terrorists - to shell the territory of Israel from residential areas and place military depots in them, hiding behind the civilian population, apparently has been developed and taken into service by regular armies.

    People react: who is nervous, who scoffs, who rejoices. And I have questions for the General Staff of the Russian Federation: what was it, who from the command of the Northern Military District was to blame, and what should we expect now? Will the statement that someone on the Russian side was wrong be a fact of disclosing a military secret? They studied academies, received titles, self-esteem grew, resourcefulness did not appear as unnecessary, with intuition ... There is no intuition, no guesswork, no resourcefulness. There is only military professionalism at an insufficient level. in dry residue.

    Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation - we are concerned.
    Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation - we will hit some centers someday.
    APU - while you scratch your tongues, we gouge (in obscene version)
    After each such shelling, the babbling from above looks more and more pitiful.
