Ex-CIA adviser: Ukraine may attack Zaporozhye NPP

Former CIA adviser James Rickards expressed his concern in an interview with The Daily Reckoning that Kiev’s desperate situation could force it to launch a false flag attack on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant


According to Rickards, by committing this act of environmental terrorism, they will blame Russia, “There is a possibility that an increasingly desperate Ukraine may try to stage a false flag attack on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in the Kherson Region and blame it on Russia. <…>. In other words, they could create the conditions for a false flag attack.”

According to the former CIA adviser, such an attack could potentially spread nuclear radiation throughout the region and possibly beyond, despite operating at a lower power than the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Russia will view this incident as an unacceptable war crime, ‘which will cause international outrage’.

This provocation will be done specifically to directly draw NATO into the conflict, as the radiation will affect Romania, Poland and Slovakia, which are members of the alliance, Rickards said.

“This will trigger Article 5 of the NATO treaty, which says that an attack on one is an attack on all,” summed up the former CIA adviser.
