The burnt remains of a Russian military tent, targeted by a Ukrainian military strike, can be seen in a Planet Labs satellite image of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant from Aug. 7.
The military strike occurred on July 19, according to the mayor of Enerhodar, the town where the nuclear power plant is located. At the time, Mayor Dmytro Orlov said an unexplained incident caused at least nine Russian soldiers to be injured and killed an unknown amount of soldiers.
On July 22, Defence Intelligence of Ukraine released a video that showed a military strike among an area of tents on the Zaporizhzhia plant compound. The tents — as well as the Ukrainian strike — were located just under 1,000 feet from one of the nuclear reactors.
The video showed at least three tent structures were burned. The Ukrainian intelligence agency claimed the strike killed three Russian soldiers and injured 12.
