Situation report day 272
November 22, 2022 - Ukrainian intelligence reports that Russia plans to carry out false flag attacks on critical infratructure in Belarus in order to increase pressure on the Belarus military to join the war on Ukraine.
Two days of intense shelling at the Zaporizhya nuclear plant have caused widespread damage but the integrity of reactors and nuclear fuel storage facilities has not been compromised, according to the IAEA who have confirmed there are no immediate safety concerns. Both Russia and Ukraine accused each other of carrying out the attacks.
Russian and Ukrainian sources are reporting a November 18 attack on an oil depot at the Black Sea port of Novorssiysk, a major base of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet since it was relocated after attacks on Sevastopol in occupied Crimea in the summer.
