In Kurchatov, 30 km west of Kursk and about 100 km northeast of Sumy, explosions occurred early on September 4. Local residents write about a “drone attack,” although there is no audio or video confirmation of these words.
In the recordings from the intercoms, which were promptly posted online by locals, a powerful explosion and then several much weaker “pops” can be heard.
On the evening of September 3, there was already thunder in Kurchatov: explosions were also recorded over the city. The air defense system allegedly went off there, and a fire broke out at the site where the “debris” fell “in a non-residential building.”
In Kurchatov, on the shore of the lake on the Seimas, the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant with a total capacity of 3 GW is located. Five kilometers to the west, in the village of Makarovka, Kursk NPP-2 is being built. Propagandists of the occupiers, describing drone attacks on Kurchatov, traditionally whip up panic and assure Russians that “Ukraine wants to blow up the nuclear power plant.”
The military department of the occupiers, which has been promptly responding to such incidents with statements for several weeks, reported that “Kyiv tried to attack objects in the Russian Federation with two UAVs; they were destroyed by air defense over the Black Sea near Crimea and over the Kursk region.”
