Military spox: Terrorist attack on Kakhovka HPP doesn't stop AFU offensive, good results to come soon

The terrorist attack at the Kakhovka HPP did not stop the offensive of the Defense Forces, and very soon there will be results that will please everyone.

Head of the Joint Press Center of the Operational Command "South" Nataliia Humeniuk said this at a press conference at the Media Center Ukraine - Ukrinform.

"Defense forces have not been affected by this (the explosion of the Kakhovka HPP - ed.) as much as the occupiers expected. Still, there have been some changes in combat operations. However, they fit into the global plan for the advance of the Defense Forces, which scares the occupiers so much," the spokeswoman said.

Thus, Humeniuk noted, the occupiers continue to realize that even such a difficult situation, which they created with a man-made disaster, will not stop the Defense Forces. "We continue our combat work - it is effective and goes according to a previously agreed plan. Very soon there will be results that will please everyone," Humeniuk assured.

In her opinion, the situation at the Zaporizhzhia NPP is one of the key elements in the chain of man-made blackmail by which the enemy is trying to force the international community and the Ukrainian Defense Forces to adjust "to their ideas and plans."

"But this blackmail can be put into action. The enemy has already proved this on the example of the Kakhovka HPP. Here, the scale may be more significant. The international community needs to be involved," emphasized Humeniuk.

Earlier, Kyrylo Budanov, head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, said that Russian troops had deployed equipment with explosives near four of the six power units at ZNPP.
