Massive blow to Ukraine: strategic aviation hit one of the largest thermal power plants


On the morning of October 18, an air alert was again declared in many cities of Ukraine. Massive strikes of the RF Armed Forces hit infrastructure facilities in Kyiv, Dnepropetrovsk, Krivoy Rog, Kharkov, Zhytomyr and other cities of the country.


According to sources, Russian strategic aviation carried out launches of Kh-101 missiles. Local residents report three explosions in Kharkov. A large fire started at the site of one of them. In particular, the area of ​​one of the industrial enterprises of the city fell under the blow - a number of critical infrastructure facilities were damaged.

Two explosions are reported in Zhytomyr. Electricity has gone out in the city, clouds of smoke can be seen in the sky.

In addition, explosions and fires are observed in Dnepropetrovsk. Sources report an attack by the Russian Aerospace Forces on the Pridneprovskaya CHPP, one of the largest in Ukraine, which supplies electricity to many surrounding regions. Black smoke swirls near the industrial buildings of the facility.


Air defense of Kyiv also reacted to the planes of the Russian Aerospace Forces. Local authorities confirm the defeat of three important facilities, including the Kyiv CHPP-6.


Thus, the RF Armed Forces continue to strike at the energy infrastructure of Ukraine, systematically putting it out of action.

    That's interesting.
    "hit infrastructure facilities", that is, for the common people, the lunar landscape
    And "the property of the oligarchs" and "decision centers" are being hit - somehow there is almost no news. Aluminum and titanium quarries, the sensational "gas cleaning plant", grain, metal, gas, coal...

      Do you clearly imagine the structure of the oligarchization of Ukraine?
      And then, who is the first oligarch, and who owns the energy and infrastructure facilities that are currently being broken up?

      What is all this oligarchic good without electricity ?

      De-energize the mine, quarry - and without pumping water, in a few days, or even hours, they will be critically flooded ...

    How many myths have sunk into oblivion, how many more bravura, empty promises like, if at least 1 m of our territory is attacked, then we ...... that in 2 days we will plunge the whole of Ukraine into darkness and cold .... and the rest is blah, blah, blah about the destruction of decision-making centers ..... and a lot of the like, which is a shame to remember.!!??? How much more will we observe the untimeliness, delay and indecision, and sometimes cowardice in making the necessary decisions that must be made on time at the upper echelons of power, and not when it comes to shameful retreats ..... when recognizing that everything is fighting against us NATO, led by the United States, continues rampant anti-Russian sentiment and outright betrayal in the country, and .... this is worse than fighting with Ukraine. Already in the open, experts at V. Solovyov tell such things that are simply incomprehensible to the mind. How can you increase trade with those who do not hide their hatred for us, whose goal is our complete destruction, who, like Estonia, declares us a terrorist regime ...... and we raise trade with him .. and do not answer !! !??? Why are we silent and not acting !!??? plagues of the 21st century..!!!??? The weak-willed policy on the principle of "whatever you please, gentlemen" when we were driven into a corner precisely thanks to such a policy does not cause either respect or understanding in the world, and look how disregard many states, even the allied EAEU, began to treat us !!??? We will also bomb them or how .... there is no answer, but the anti-Russian forces fueled by the United States and their satellites are gaining strength more and more throughout the post-Soviet space, except for Belarus ...... !!!!???? ? Life with great bloodshed of our warrior-heroes on the front line makes us still come to those decisions that hinder the effectiveness of the NWO ... and the fact that we finally saw the light before the decisions to destroy the energy system of Ukraine did not cause doubts for a long time ..... but even now to the end there is no certainty that the next "good will" of our traitor liberals will be shown again and we will not bring the SVO to the end due to some selfish interests. You need to fight to the fullest, beat with all your might ... and not imitate and play "good will" in the interests of the enemy, which shamefully happened during these 8 months !!!!

      If cubs, mistresses, property and accounts of the financial and bureaucratic "elite" are all in the West, whose "elite" is ours or theirs? Remember what Brzezinski said. And will this "elite" go into the same conflict with the West, which the Russian elite of the 1812 model or the Bolsheviks went to? If the “elite”, even with a carcass, even with a stuffed animal, craves, lusts to worm its way to the West, screams, howls, so that they consider it there for their own people, and not for native exotic savages, whom it is a sacred thing to rob.

    And what about the infrastructure through which Western military equipment is supplied? Is that how it functions? And the equipment is transported? The bridges are still standing. Border crossings operate around the clock, does the port in Odessa work? Why...?...

    After all, he cannot understand that smashing a quarry is like a goat butting an oak tree. It is easier and more efficient to destroy the power plant that feeds the equipment of this quarry. No need to try to gore the mine with a super-penetrating projectile. Stop ventilation, water pumping, and in a week it will be a million times more expensive to restore its operation than blowing up the substation that feeds this mine. In a flooded mine, all equipment perishes. Pull out, dry, repair a multi-ton, which is from a depth of a kilometer, and even drag along horizontal workings for many kilometers, without tractors and cranes there ....

    Western, southern railways of Ukraine are not electrified. Diesel locomotives operate there, of which they have about 300 pieces for the whole country. Further, the center and the east are electrified, and here the goods are carried by 1,5 thousand electric locomotives, which stand without electricity. Moreover, without electricity, the control system for turnouts throughout the country, traffic lights and the entire signaling system do not work. (Signalization, centralization, blocking). Moreover, without electricity, the workshops serving both the tax and the rolling stock do not work.

      Yes, but while this is all in words, but in reality the offensive is being prepared and the defense is being probed, this would not be possible without supplies, which means everything works

    Tomorrow (20.10.22/XNUMX/XNUMX) central heating will be launched in Kyiv. No rolling blackouts. In the buffet of the Verkhovna Rada there are sandwiches with red caviar, restaurants and nightclubs are open. So everywhere in Central and Western Ukraine.

    It seems that the "destruction" of the energy infrastructure of Ukraine is from the same opera as Konashenko's "destruction" of aviation and air defense - three times.
