    Six towers of high-voltage power lines blown up by Ukrainian saboteurs in Russia's Kursk region in Aug - FSB

    August 16, 2022 - Interfax Russia & CIS General Newswire


      MOSCOW. Aug 16 (Interfax) - Ukrainian saboteurs blew up six towers of high-voltage power lines in August, causing disruptions in the technological process of the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant, the Federal Security Service (FSB)'s public relations center said on Tuesday.

      "Groups of Ukrainian saboteurs blew up six towers of high-voltage power lines (110kV, 330kV and 750kV) in the Kurchatov district of the Kursk region on August 4, 9 and 12, 2022. The Kursk NPP uses the power lines to supply electricity to manufacturing plants, transport, critical and social infrastructure, and residential areas in the region and the adjacent constituent territories of the country," the FSB said.

      "The sabotage led to a disruption in the technological process of the NPP functioning," it said.

      The Main Investigative Department of the Russian Investigative Committee opened criminal cases under Paragraphs A and B, Part 2, Article 205 of the Russian Criminal Code (terror attack), the FSB said.

      "The Russian Federal Security Service is working together with the Russian Interior Ministry to find the criminals and their possible accomplices," it said.

      Measures have been taken in collaboration with the Russian National Guard to enhance the protection of atomic energy sites, the FSB said.
