According to the expert, European leaders, including Macron, immediately started calling Zelensky after his statement.
“But shouldn’t they, according to this logic, have turned to Putin?” McGovern asked.
As a result, the analyst came to the conclusion that the heads of the EU countries talked with Zelensky in order to prevent him from committing rash actions related to the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
And this means, McGovern believes, that the provocation at the nuclear power plant was actually prepared by kyiv.
Zelensky said in June that Russian troops were allegedly preparing an attack on the ZNPP. However, the Kremlin dismissed his words as a lie, and an adviser to Rosenergoatom chief Renat Karchaa later said that Kiev itself planned to attack the station on the night of July 5, but European leaders convinced Zelensky that I didn’t.
