Destruction in Khmelnytskyi region is definitely not result of falling debris - military expert
Vladyslav Selezniov, military expert and former spokesman for the General Staff, says that the consequences of the strike on Khmelnytskyi region were not caused by drone wreckage
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"Obviously, it was not the fall of drone fragments that caused such large-scale consequences. Something else happened, and I hope we will find out what exactly," the expert said.
Selezniov added that Ukrainians have the right to know the truth about this attack.
"As a result of the Russian drone attacks, social, educational, cultural facilities and ordinary homes of Ukrainian residents were destroyed. It is likely that the drones could have received some damage and fallen on the territory of the local community, but the warhead of those drones were damaged and, accordingly, its detonation took place on the ground. This option cannot be ruled out either," Selezniov summarized.
On the night of October 25, Russia attacked Ukraine with drones. Explosions were heard in the Khmelnytskyi region, and in the Shepetivka district, drones fell on a critical infrastructure facility as a result of being shot down.
Terrorists used 11 strike Shahed drones. Air defense destroyed all the kamikaze drones. Unfortunately, the falling debris caused injuries among the civilian population. In the towns of Slavuta and Netishyn, Khmelnytskyi region, 11 apartment buildings and 9 private houses, 2 educational institutions, 2 fire rescue units, a police station and other civilian infrastructure were damaged.
Russian attack near Khmelnytskyi NPP damaged windows in the office building and the laboratory. 1860 consumers in the towns of Slavuta and Netishyn, Khmelnytskyi Region, were cut off from electricity
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the Khmelnytsky Nuclear Power Plant was most likely the target of the Russian drones during the night attack on October 25.
On October 26, the IAEA responded to the downing of Russian drones near the Khmelnytsky NPP.
