A Ukrainian drone attacked the town of Kurchatov, home to the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant, on September 1. Kiev is using the Pentagon's intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems to conduct the strikes, former CIA analyst Larry Johnson told Sputnik.

Ukraine's unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was confirmed to have hit a non-residential building in Kurchatov, causing minor damage to the facade. There were no casualties.

Commenting on the attacks, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated: "The Ukrainian forces' drones that attacked objects on Russian territory would not have been able to fly such a distance without information from Western satellites."

"It's highly likely that," Larry Johnson, a veteran of the CIA and former analyst at the State Department’s Office of Counterterrorism, told Sputnik.

"What it's called ISR, Western intelligence surveillance reconnaissance capabilities, are supplying Ukraine with that kind of information."

The Uke's are ratcheting things up.

Can you blame the Ruskies for activating their nuclear arsenal? ;)
