Ukraine’s largest energy company – DTEK,owned by Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov – warned in a Facebook post on June 27 that Russia might be planning to carry out a terror attack on its Kryvyi Rih thermal power station.
Earlier, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson claimed that there were Ukrainian troops at the power plant.
“Reports of armed personnel on the premises of DTEK Kryvyi Rih TPS are absolutely fake,” DTEK said, commenting on the Russian claim.
According to the company, there is, and never was any military presence at the facility. Only the regular staff of the facility is present on site, operating the power plant.
“The company (DTEK) considers such claims by the officials of the aggressor country as attempts to justify further terror attacks on Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure by its invading forces,” DTEK’s message said.
