So, after the message of the RF Ministry of Defense about the sinking of two barges with landing troops in the Kakhovka reservoir (which fully confirmed my morning assumption), everything became clear with the plan to seize the ZNPP territory by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
So, the plan was this. By the time the IAEA mission arrived in Energodar, the SSO of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in cooperation with other units and under the cover of artillery from the northern coast, were to take control of the territory of the station, which this very mission was supposed to record.
I'll start with the background. A few days ago, when the leadership of the IAEA announced its plans not only to visit the station, but also to leave permanent observers there, it puzzled me. It looked like a clear playing along with Russia, since a permanent mission in this area made it possible to eliminate the problem of shelling (but, as it turned out today, this was a preparation not for Russia, but for Kyiv).
But let's move on to today's events. That night, the SSO of the Armed Forces of Ukraine landed in the area of dachas northeast of the ZNPP and secretly occupied the starting lines of the attack by 5 o'clock in the morning (the RF Ministry of Defense claims that this happened later, but this is not so important). Their task was to break through to the territory of the station and ensure the reception of the main landing group.
At 5.20 artillery The Armed Forces of Ukraine opened fire on posts of the RF Armed Forces on the territory of the station, and around 6 am the attack of the first wave of landing began.
