#AceBreakingNews – Wagner Group base reportedly hit by Ukraine rocket strike, more warnings about shelling near Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant
Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor to Ukraine’s minister of internal affairs, said the Wagner Group base in Russian-occupied Popasna was hit by a US-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).
Wagner Group, which has operated across various continents, has historically faced accusations of war crimes.
According to US and British intelligence, 1,000 Wagner mercenaries, including senior leaders, have been deployed to the eastern parts of Ukraine.
Serhiy Haidai, the head of the Ukrainian regional military administration in Luhansk, said the number of casualties in the HIMARS strike was not yet known.
The reported attack came as Ukraine warns about the consequences of catastrophe at Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, where fresh shelling has renewed a blame game with Russia.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russian soldiers would become a “special target” if they attacked the site in the now Russian-controlled city of Enerhodar, or use it as a base to shoot from.
Mr Zelenskyy said he sought a tougher response globally.
“If through Russia’s actions a catastrophe occurs the consequences could hit those who for the moment are silent,” he said.
“If now the world does not show strength and decisiveness to defend one nuclear power station, it will mean that the world has lost.”
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which is seeking access to the plant, has warned of possible disaster with fears fighting might damage the plant’s spent fuel pools or reactors.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for the establishment of a demilitarised zone around Zaporizhzhia.
The United Nations says it has the logistics and security capacity to support an IAEA visit if both Russia and Ukraine agree.
“In close cooperation with the agency and its leadership, we will do everything necessary for the IAEA specialists to be at the station and give a truthful assessment of the destructive actions of the Ukrainian side,” Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
However, a senior Russian diplomat told Russian media it would be too dangerous for the IAEA to pass through Kyiv to visit the plant.
“Imagine what it means to pass through Kyiv — it means they get to the nuclear plant through the front line,” Igor Vishnevetsky, deputy head of the foreign ministry’s nuclear proliferation and arms control department said.
“This is a huge risk, given that Ukraine’s armed forces are not all made up in the same way.”
