First of all, in order to fully supply Crimea with electricity. They planned to do it in the first half of August, but they didn’t succeed then,” Skybytskyi claims.

“Only the Russians are able to hide in a nuclear power plant to place their troops there. The territory near the station, near Enerhodar, is also actively used for Russian missile strikes on the territories controlled by our men. Thirdly, it is a very convenient case for them to carry out their provocations in the territory of the two power plants as well as in the area of ​​the whole city of Enerhodar,” Skybytskyi said.
